The "You Couldn't Make This Up" Article of 2005

I thought long and hard about it.

And read a lot.

But the "You Couldn't Make This Up" article of 2005 was this one.

It's "Woman of Mass Destruction," By Maureen Dowd, in the New York Times, Saturday 22 October.

A absolutely savage butt-whuppin', delivered by one complete nutjob news diva to another. Giant egos in news and politics have been around since...well, forever, since men were involved, and giant egos are pretty much our specialty.

But it is really quite special when the high heels, long nails and voices-of-higher-pitch take over. Perhaps women are finally achieving equality, if one woman can just haul off and cold cock another woman like this on the editorial page of the Grey Lady. Fantastic.
