This is how Maureen Dowd sees Obama:
The odd thing is that Obama bears a distinct resemblance to the most cherished hero in chick-lit history. The senator is a modern incarnation of the clever, haughty, reserved and fastidious Mr. Darcy.
Like the leading man of Jane Austen and Bridget Jones, Obama can, as Austen wrote, draw “the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien. …he was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust which turned the tide of his popularity; for he was discovered to be proud, to be above his company, and above being pleased.”
MoDo is in looooove.
Here’s how Beth sees the Obamateurtm
just another arrogant, self-obsessed, vapid political hack whose accomplishments can be counted on a number of fingers not unadjacent to ZERO, and who will more than likely be a miserable failure if elected President (a prospect that is still very much in doubt).
Of course, MoDo (who writes a book asking “Are Men Necessary” and then wonders why nobody wants to marry her) thinks that if you don’t adore
Mr. Darcy Obama, then you’re racist.
Take it away, Alfonzo,
