She made some interesting points about the Bush administration, the NY Times and Judy Miller. She also took some pot shots at Rush Limbaugh and the right wing smear machine. (rough transcript)
Dowd: Judy got ensnared in the two big scams of the Bush administration. The big scam and the little scam. The big scam was to take the country to war after 9/11 and go to Iraq instead of going after Osama which is going to haunt us for generations and the little scam was to smear anyone who, who got on to their ginned up intelligence and tried to tell the public about and she got too close to these scams.
