Maureen Dowd, the Angry NYT Columnist

Ms. Dowd sure does think a lot of herself. Having gotten a Pulitzer Prize for her fiction writing during the Clinton years, she lets go a dubious salvo at Dean based on him not returning her call. (Was he even scheduled to talk to her, or is this just an easy tale to build a column around?).

Pandagon had a fine take on her petulance:

Pandagon: Angah!
I decided to use my five minutes to find out if he has the sunny side Americans love in their leaders. I'd ask him what he'd want to do for fun on a Saturday night if he could play hooky. I'd ask him the last time he did something goofy and what made him really laugh...
Gotta love this line of questioning. Five minutes with a presidential candidate - "Since you don't love your wife, are you ever happy?"...
