Are all the pundits who matter at DailyKos male?

Post to Twitter

Over at Daily Kos is a post entitled “Abbreviated Pundit Round-up,” by “BarbinMD” with a first sentence that touts itself as “Your one stop pundit shop.” The pundits receiving links and blurbs? William Kristol, Tony Blankley, Richard Cohen, Cal Thomas, Eugene Robinson, William McGurn, Keith B. Payne, Derrick Z. Jackson, Jim Hoagland, David Ignatius, Joseph A. Califano, Jr., and Larry Tye.

    Given the cast of characters, I wonder if it isn’t supposed to have been an “Abbreviated Putz Round-up” listing “pundits you shouldn’t waste your time reading no matter how incredibly bored you are”. In which case there would still be some glaring female omissions.

    Not saying they shouldn’t be more aware of this, but dailykos regularly links to (off the top of my head) Gail Collins, Maureen Dowd and Ruth Marcus (and it’s all their days off, I believe). Probably more a reflection of the lack of female columnists in MSM than deliberate sexism on their part.

    I think they answered that question with a resounding yes, during the pie fight of ’05.
