Down On Dowdisms

The Mobile Register isn't letting MoDo get away with her non-"correction."

It will be interesting to see the follow up to this one.

Marshall claims to be a fan of MoDo, but I have my doubts. Listen to this:

Dowd is a gifted writer with a trenchant wit, though her talent is largely squandered: She seldom expresses a constructive thought. As I put it in an earlier column, she is mainly a standup comic specializing in insults -- Don Rickles with an exceptionally high language quotient.

Talk about damning with faint praise! "She seldom expresses a constructive thought." Wow...

I think its not so much "damning with faint praise" as pointing out that MoDo's columns are almost universally negative and does not offer constructive criticism. This is an accurate reflection of her style regardless of whether you support her beliefs or oppose them.
