It Takes a Nation of Cowards to Hold Us Back

Maureen Dowd, unintentionally proving Eric Holder’s point:

Yet Obama is oozing empathy compared with his attorney general, who last week called us “a nation of cowards” about race.

Eric Holder, who showed precious little bravery in standing up to Clinton on a pardon for the scoundrel Marc Rich, is wrong. We have just inaugurated a black president who installed a black attorney general.

This is a non-sequitor wrapped in a non-sequitor. Compare this baffling dismissal to Charles Blow’s earlier meditation on Holder’s remarks, and you have to ask yourself, yet again: Why the hell does Maureen Dowd get column space in any reputable paper, much less the venerable Gray Lady?
