Althouse confesses this morning that she "adores" the Drudge Report. I might as well fess up: I've got a crush on Maureen Dowd. (It's okay, my wife knows.) I feel this way despite her stereotypically self-pitying January 13 column in which she claims that men don't want powerful, accomplished, brilliant women their own ages. I sure do. I'd be bored out of my mind otherwise. (Younger's fine too, of course, but not necessary.)

Women who don't believe that about men like me lose their chance at men like me.

I thought her December 19 column putting Donald Rumsfeld in an "It's a Wonderful Life" scenario was a flat-out masterpiece.
