Anent this: What bothers people like Dowd about people like Gore is earnestness. They don't share in the Lotus-Eating irony that people like her (and me) enjoy. This is the problem with Democrats in general, always obsessed with their plans about fixing things. Chill, dude! Leave the earnestness to our future Chinese overlords!

You're on to something with the irony here. But sometimes it goes the other way. The big square red states view the world a little too literally to quite follow the "smarty pants" left and instead follow any politician cynical enough to spout cliched God & Country bromides.

As for Dowd -- she's strictly entertainment. The notion that she has anything to say about policy matters is patently silly.
