MoDo did well!

Who said this?

“Just because Che became a chic brand for the capitalism he tried to destroy, it doesn’t mean he’s worth honoring on Galway Bay.”

Maureen Dowd said it.

I kid you not!

She said it in her column Gaelic Guerrilla (h/t Babalu),

Cameron hopes the city council takes the memorial matter up soon. Meanwhile, he sees the totalitarian rainbow. “The ultimate fruit of all this is that Che will be known as having the Irish blood and the Galway connection,” he says. “And that is an achievement in itself.”

Certainly Cameron is checking out Pol Pot’s genealogy, in case someone from Galway turns up.

    Well, we could raise the broken clock/twice a day thing… but really, I’m just glad that even a screeching liberal like MoDo can have common sense where a murderous villain is concerned. I’d rather say “right on” and celebrate a rare point of agreement with her because, come on… it’s freakin’ Che. Anyone with a smidgen of common sense should see Che for the flat out enemy of freedom he really is.

    Er… really was. Given that he’s dead. Damn, I should really proofread before submitting…

    His work, his words, and the evil they stand for live on, EMH.

    I was going to say the broken clock thingy, but E.M.H. beat me to it. Suffice it to say that occasionally MoDo pleasantly surprises me. Which is all the more pleasant because I never expect it.

    While Che is dead, his current followers ARE enemies of freedom.
