: I caught Maureen Dowd, touting her book, on the Sunday morning gabest this morning and now I know why I rarely see her on TV: The woman has a horrible voice for broadcast. She drones like a lawnmower.

    REALLY uptight too. It’s in her voice.

  • Nice rack, though.

  • I had a similar reaction to Dowd yesterday. But it was her demeanor that was off-putting to me, not her voice.

    I saw her on C-Span’s Booknotes.
    I thought, she should really go for it and get into the Goth look — black lipstick, clothes and a pierced lower lip.
