Sublime Depth of Character Addresses the World's Oldest Giggly Schoolgirl

Hat tip to Drew, of Darn Floor, for pointing me to a truly sublime piece of writing by the Anchoress addressed to the embarrassingly overmatched Maureen Dowd.

Dowd's piece in the New York Times, Jingle Bell Schlock, was surely meant as light comedy. Her crass and amatuerish attempts to belittle something the majority of Americans love, simply another in a long series of efforts to distinguish her as superior to the crass "common man" her political party of preference ever more comedically pretends to represent.

Yet The Anchoress finds a profoundly deep and spiritual thread to address within. And reaches out with such a sublime sense of what's truly important in life, it bears reading for its own sake even if you can't bear to read yet another silly and vain Dowd column.
