Dowd angry that Obama is paying off Clinton's debt

Maureen Dowd, under fire from her own newspaper for her "endless assault" against Hillary Clinton, made three interesting points in tonight's column:
1) There was no unity in "Unity" because a lady named Carmella yelled "We want Hillary!"
"We want Hillary!" screamed the 57-year-old retired ad saleswoman and Clinton delegate.
2) Bill Clinton, according to Dowd's evidence-free mind-reading skills, is "trying to shake down Obama for more -- more apologies for perceived snubs and more help paying off the $22 million Clinton debt."
Endless hours were spent analyzing the shade of her pantsuit and his matching tie. Was it powder blue? Cornflower blue? Peacock blue? Cerulean?
3) The media overhyped the Unity gathering. Dowd even criticizes the media for over-stressing Clinton's pantsuit color and Obama's tie. The hypocrite pretends never having scrutinized with microscopic precision the clothes worn by Al Gore, Howard Dean's wife, etc.Remember this?
In worn jeans and old sneakers, the shy and retiring Dr. Judith Steinberg Dean looked like a crunchy Vermont hippie, blithely uncoiffed, unadorned, unstyled and unconcerned about not being at her husband's side -- the anti-Laura.
Dowd's modus operandi consists of one anti-Republican piece followed by 10 anti-Democratic ones, of which 9 are anti-Clinton. She is that predictable. But it's an effective strategy, in that it makes some state, "See, she hates everybody!"
