Maureen Dowd: E.T., phone me!

WASHINGTON — There are plenty of unexplained phenomena here on Earth. What kind of mentality does it take for Mike Pence to dip his toe in the 2024 presidential waters while abasing himself before the president who seemed content to have him hanged?. Why are Donald Trump and Republicans so...

Maureen Dowd: Ex-commish with the dish

Cops have never been so blue. “The morale has never been as low as it is right now in the 50 years I’ve been dealing with it,” says Bill Bratton, the top cop who transformed the police departments in New York and Los Angeles, only to watch much of that progress go up in smoke.

Maureen Dowd: Liz Cheney and the Big Lies

Washington — I miss torturing Liz Cheney. But it must be said that the petite blonde from Wyoming suddenly seems like a Valkyrie amid halflings. She is willing to sacrifice her leadership post — and risk her political career — to continue calling out Donald Trump’s Big Lie. She has decided that if the price of her job is being as unctuous to Trump as Kevin McCarthy is, it isn’t worth it, because McCarthy is totally disgracing himself.

Maureen Dowd: Biden ditches the generals, finally

Washington — Afghanistan has a complicated relationship with time. And America has a complicated relationship with revenge. Between these two truths, tragedy blossomed. Awash in grief and anger, we invaded Afghanistan after 9/11 to hunt down Osama bin Laden and punish the Taliban for letting him turn a maze of caves into a launching pad to attack America.

Maureen Dowd: Nonstop depravity

A Twitter wag summed it up best: “Matt Gaetz is everything the Republicans were looking for in Hunter Biden.”. The New York Times’ report about a federal investigation into whether the Florida congressman had a sexual relationship with a minor and paid for her to travel has set off a scandal worthy of a pulp paperback, one swirling with claims of extortion, Ecstasy, an orgy, a hula hoop and sex trafficking, along with an Iranian hostage and, of course, a cameo by Roger Stone.

Maureen Dowd column: Trump’s Capitol offense
