Men without women
Tom Smith

I like women.  I wouldn't want to do without them.  But if I were making the case for men without women, I would find Maureen Dowd very useful.  Glib, self-satisfied, and neither as smart nor as good looking as she thinks, she makes a long fishing trip with nothing but the guys and a case of scotch a pretty inviting prospect.

Maureen Dowd is smart, pretty enough and, most importantly, about to be a lapsed Roman Catholic. Ever since my father was excommunicated for marrying my mother, I have grown to enjoy lapsed-catholic women. I had fun with the unlapsed type in my youth, but eventually their ideas concerning contraception, marriage, baptism, confirmation, communion and abortion eventually got in the way.

I would not kick her out of bed.

Mr. Jimbino, I won't debate Catholicism or lapsed status, but you lost me at "smart, pretty enough." I will grant that she occasionally turns a phrase, but the "analysis" is lame freshman-dorm level, and not from the smarter frosh. As for "pretty enough," well, that's drunk frosh level.

I'd kick her out of bed.

And there you have it.

A classic American type. She has chips on both shoulders, reasons poorly, is smug and bigoted, has a bad attitude. On a fishing trip she would complain about everything, ask the men to bait her hooks, and later would write a column about how the Catholic church and Republicans are cruel to fish. She does, however, remind us how pleasant and interesting other women can be by comparison.

Dowd, from the run of her columns, is not getting old and still alone without good reason.

I might not kick her out of bed but I sure as heck ain't gonna stay around after it.

Maureen Dowd is possibly the most repulsive woman I have ever seen.

most guys say this "i love women" to defend themselves for having so many women..God, if only they know the difference between women and some other things that they can possess for more than one just because they love it so much...guys, this is a different thing!
