On Maureen Dowd, feminism, and sexism

At Majikthise, Lindsay has a good response to the allegedly sexist criticism of Dowd's new book, Are Men Necessary?: "Far from making the personal political, Dowd made the political personal in a particularly self-absorbed way. She chose to set up her experience as if it were universal and to bolster her prejudices with spurious data and cherry-picked quotes."

I previously wrote about Dowd upon her return from summer hiatus -- see here.

Which brings me to this question: TimesSelect or no, does anyone even like Dowd anymore?
