New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd has evolved into a destructive force. Her pieces are almost purely gossip, innuendo, and meanness; worst of all they are often wrong.

Now, more often than not, she is the evil, generating paranoia without a purpose -- her own brand of the politics of destruction.
