Maureen Dowd Seems to Juice a Quote, Turning It From Marginal to OUTRAGEOUS!!!; Claims "Noisy Coffeehouse" and Bad Tape Recording is the Reason for Her Error, But the Interviewee's Tape Recorded the Quote Cleanly Enough

Christine Quinn is a lesbian, childless city councilwoman trying to become mayor of New York City.

She's also a moonbat.

Maureen Dowd got an interview with the wife of one of Quinn's rivals. No, not Huma. The candidate is named De Blasio or something, and his his wife is named something else. I'll call her "the wife" because 1, I'm fundamentally lazy and don't feel like looking it up, and 2, I don't care what her name is, and 3, neither do any of you.

Now, the wife said something about Quinn seeming "inaccessible" to the public and not talking about issues important to women, such as child care or something something liberal.

Maureen Dowd seems to have detected in this a whiff of Lesbian Baiting, the idea that the wife was claiming Quinn couldn't understand the problems of "normal women" because she was not normal herself.

Now, the wife did not actually say that... One could, perhaps, find that in her quote, if one looked. And if one wanted to find it. And if one really really really wanted to extract a newsworthy OUTRAGE!!! quote from what was probably a pretty boring and useless interview.

So Maureen Dowd found the perfect quote she was looking for.

Alas... it was not the quote the wife actually said, and the wife can prove that, because she herself carried a tape recorder.

And unlike Maureen Dowd's selectively-insensitive tape recorder, the wife's recorder apparently worked throughout the duration of the interview.

Here is what Maureen Dowd alleges the wife said. Be on the look out for a Dog Whistle that Quinn is a Lesbian and therefore Does Not Get Your Heterosexual Female Issues.

She's not the kind of person I feel I can go up to and talk to about issues like taking care of children at a young age and paid sick leave.

Now you may say, "What? I don't get that Lesbian Dog Whistle thing out of that at all." Well, you're not supposed to; this Dog Whistle is pitched at an ultrasonic frequency such that only Leftist Bloodhounds Bred to Detect Intolerance can hear it.

And they did hear it. And Maureen Dowd heard it. The lefties heard it, which is all that matters for our purposes.

But while people may have heard it, it wasn't actually said.

Here's what was really said, thanks to the wife's own recording of the conversation:

Well, I am a woman, and she is not speaking to the issues I care about, and I think a lot of women feel the same way. I don't see her speaking to the concerns of women who have to take care of children at a young age or send them to school and after school, paid sick days, workplace; she is not speaking to any of those issues. What can I say? And she's not accessible, she's not the kind of person that, I feel, that you can go up and talk to and have a conversation with about those things. And I suspect that other women feel the same thing I'm feeling.

You can still even find a Dog Whistle there if you want -- and Quinn's supporters do want to find that Dog Whistle, of course -- but now one strains (even harder) to make the case.

So Maureen Dowd started with a nothing quote and wound up with a quote that got attention and plumped for who I assume is her favored candidate, Christine Quinn, and got mentioned in the media for the first time since Bill Clinton's ejaculate was entered into State's Evidence.

And she says this happened On Accident n Stuff.


I'm always suspicious of things which happen On Accident n Stuff but just so happen to the benefit the person who did the thing On Accident n Stuff.

Here's a conspiracy theory for you: The mistakes we make that accrue to own benefit are not really mistakes.

When even archliberal H8r of H8 Kevin Drum says you've "twisted" a quote, you've done something wrong.

But here's the thing:

How wrong was it to do what she did?

Some conspiracy theorists say that reporters twist the quotes of most of the people they interview.

These conspiracy theorists are sometimes called "half of the people reporters interview."

Like Richard Nixon, Maureen Dowd just be one of the ones who got caught.

Maetenloch Suggests... that listening to the actual recording will dispel any doubts you might have that this was a deliberately cobbled, contrived "quote."

Mind.Blown. De Blasio's anti-lesbian sexual-racist dogwhistling wife is herself...

... a former lesbian. And black.

Someone said this in the comments and I thought they were making up a silly joke.



This is like Inception except instead of a spinning top it's a black former lesbian.

Curiouser and curiouser, Alice said, and the strongly implied the March Hare dug on dick.
