Quote of the day

Radio host Don Imus commenting on Maureen Dowd this morning:
Her column today made your hair hurt, it was so tedious.
What makes this all the more amusing is that Imus is a fan of Dowd. She is a recurring guest on his show, he frequently praises her writing, and he listed her book as one of the ten best of 2004.

Here is the Dowd column in question.

(Note: The Imus quotation above is written from memory and may be inexact. But if it's off, it's not off by much.)

Update: The Anchoress writes a rather more emotional critique of an earlier Dowd column about Christmas. As Captain's Quarters comments, "Read the whole thing, and then go hug your family."
