Dowd is just reigning on Bush’s parade. The Times has become so
stunningly small-minded and petty it really is a marvel. Just as it’s

gestures, Dowd taking that juvenile a shot at Bush really tells you
everything you need to know about the Times’s Iraq coverage: no
achievement ever acknowledged; no nit ever unmentioned or uninflated.
