Just when you think the misandrous Maureen Dowd cannot go any lower…

… she writes this sort of stuff, from her most recent, uh, screed, “Father Doesn’t Know Best”:

The bishops and the Vatican care passionately about putting women in chastity belts. Yet they let unchaste priests run wild for decades, unconcerned about the generations of children who were violated and raped and passed around like communion wine.

When hell freezes over, Dowd will write the following:

The public school administrators and educators care passionately about talking of “tolerance” and “respect”. Yet they still allow preying teachers to run wild, unconcerned about the tens of thousands of children who are harrassed, molested, violated, and raped, and passed around like hall passes.

Rather than bother with another fisking (we’ve already done that and been there recently), let’s go with a simple clerihew:

The mocking, misandrous Maureen Dowd,
Preaches her Time-ly religion, loud and proud:
Men are evil and hell will forever persist,
While chastity, clergy, and Church exist. 

We now return to our regularly scheduled blog posts.
