    `The United Nations is one of those institutions, like the Women's National Basketball Association, that sails above its failures because it just seems to so many people like a good idea.'

    Thus writes Mona Charen in Monday, Sept. 23's newspapers (her column is very, VERY widely syndicated).

    So not every woman in the mainstream press has jumped on the womens' sports bandwagon.

    Just thought you frothing-at-the-mouth WNBA-haters should know.

    Mona Charen is about as mainstream as David Duke.

    Mona Charen once claimed that there was no sex and violence in Shakespeare. Like Ann Coulter, she gets attention because people love to rally around controversial figures without taking the time to understand why they're controversial. (That is -- her opinions ain't the problem; it's her facts, or lack thereof.)

    She's a conservative columnist. Gets her column in the AJC about every 29 days. A nose you could open a wine bottle with.

    Had the gall to ask for prayers for her sick child after cheering up racial profiling in post- 9/11 America.

    Well for one thing, she's right. The WNBA is a joke and women shouldn't respect it. The ABL was legitimate, the WNBA is a tax write-off and a PR move by the NBA. That having been said, it sounds like Ms. Charen has some problem with the UN, not the WNBA, so isn't this a political discussion?

    When you wrongly denigrate people, you lose credibility...

    To equate her with David Duke, because you may disagree with her conservative philosphy, is like a conservative suggesting that (insert name Liberal Commentator here) is equal to Stalin.

    Both analogies would be in obvious error and reduces the credibility of the one making the comment!

    Actually, QuarkSpaceDotCom posted that first. I would've picked Jesse Helms myself.

    I've actually suggested to local Democrats that they should go around to meetings of local women's business groups with copies of some of Charen's columns for recruiting purposes.

    She's not mainstream at all.

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
