I'm just going to copy my comment from the reprint of this article in the Irish Times:
Maureen Dowd sounds like an absolute moron. She gets so close to hitting the mark, but misses consistently. Blaming the democrat candidates' lack of charisma and inability to truly connect with voters on "Trump is a phony"...ugh. How drove. She may as well just say "orange man bad" and get it over with.
