Mutton Dressed as Lamb: Myrna Blyth on MoDo

Myrna Blyth isn't too impressed with Maureen Dowd these days:

Yet whenever I see Maureen on TV, that wonderful old English phrase "Mutton dressed as lamb" pops into my mind. And, note to her stylist: That little shell she was wearing under her jacket on Chris Matthews was much too tight. It pulled so much it made her look round-shouldered!

...

But it isn't only that this 53-year-old mutton is shopping in the wrong boutiques; what's really striking is that Maureen acts so lamb-like in these interviews, gamboling and simpering, giggling and flirting and telling everyone she is "such a ditz." To the New York magazine reporter, she admitted that she is always losing cell phones and laptops — just the kind of behavior a mother would find intolerable in any child older than 16.

Rrrowr! Here's more:

The point of her book, she says, is that feminism has failed because men don't want smart women — and that nowadays women don't want to achieve but only want to be some man's stay-at-home trophy wife.

Of course, as Howard Fineman noted somewhat gingerly on Chris Matthews — he obviously didn't want to get between Maureen and her theory — today in America, both spouses often have to work for economic reasons. And, of course, all statistics show that most educated men marry equally educated women. Nowadays when a woman decides to stay home it is usually because both husband and wife agree that it is the better way to raise the children.

But how would Maureen, unmarried and childless, with a high-paying job and a string of boyfriends that has included a movie star, a top television writer and producer, and a couple of top editors, really know about the financial or family concerns of most women in this country?

What indeed? I'll take Myrna Blyth over Maureen Dowd any day. She's smart, funny, and not afraid to act her age.

Just another example (not that we needed any more) that fantasy-ridden Leftist utopianism can find many outlets. From Che to Chomsky to Michael Moore and MoDo, the common element is a disconnect from reality, a disconnect that allows one to belief any old thing one wants in spite of the massive evidence to the contrary just beyond one's nose.

Myrna Blyth is a jewel.
