Maureen Dowd Sunday:
Hillary says Obama is “all hat and no cattle.” You’d think she’d want to avoid cattle metaphors, so as not to rile up those with a past beef about her sketchy windfall on cattle futures. She could simply say he’s all cage and no bird.
She slipped into a "you all" and criticized Bush, the former Texas governor.
"There's a great saying in Texas," she said, "all hat and no cattle. Well after seven years of George Bush, we need a lot less hat and lot more cattle."
It's all too reminiscent of her misquotation of President Bush as saying Al Qaeda is "not a problem anymore" back in 2003, which spawned a widespread media myth, or her distortion of a quote by Alberto Gonzales about the Geneva Conventions. Imagine if she hadn't been a reporter first!
