Secret Thoughts of the Vacuous

Op-ed columnist Maureen Dowd spent her entire column informing us what major figures, such as Sen. Hillary Clinton and President George H.W. Bush were really thinking at President Gerald Ford’s funeral. (“James Baker’s secret thoughts belied his poker face: ‘I tried to help you out, son, but you’re too dang stubborn. Or ‘resolute,’ as you say. Stubolute. A clear case of TMC — too much Cheney.’ Dick Cheney’s bubble was trouble: ‘I’m surging, I’m surging, I’m surging.’”)

And Dowd’s bubble? “I don’t really have anything to say. But when do I ever? Maybe this will fool them again.”
