Yid with Lid wraps up CPAC with this amusing anecdote on old media meeting new:
2) NY Times Columnist Maureen Dowd May Be Suffering From Some Sort Of Dementia. The blogger’s “lounge” where we worked was very crowded, and people without the proper credentials were not allowed in the room.
On the second day of the event Liberal NY Times Columnist Maureen Dowd tried to get into the blogger’s lounge, lacking credentials she was not allowed to enter. Ms. Dowd was not happy and indignantly asked the person who blocked her entry, “Do you have any idea who I am?”
What a sad picture, here was a woman who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1999 and only 12 years later she was wandering the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel with no idea who she was. How the mighty have fallen.
Moe Lane is willing to help MoDo though: “Seriously, Maureen: next time, just call me on my cell and I’ll see what I can do.”
