Irish Catholics have long memories.

Irish Catholics have long memories. I’m sure an unnamed political advisor from the previous Bush administration is regretting his loose lips many years ago when he confessed to Maureen Dowd that his boss was surprised to find a person with her background covering the White House for the New York Times. The op-ed (deadly serious, as opposed to her frequently missing-the-mark unfunny flights of whimsy) also dredges up a revealing interview from that same period that shows how selective class-blindless trumps color-blindness any day with this crowd.
