Maureen Dowd Finally Gets One Right

Maureen Dowd may be my least favorite New York Times columnist. I find her willingness to sacrifice just about any principle for the sake of a clever putdown to be distasteful, at best. But I must admit that I enjoyed her column today, in which she conflated the wingnut controversy over the SpongeBob SquarePants "tolerance" video with the president's harping on the words (although certainly not the sentiments) liberty and freedom in his second inaugural speech.
