Maureen Dowd wields Freud, Greek tragedy and Yeats in her analysis of Republican Party’s doomed 2012 bid for White House
Thought-provoking op-ed. Maureen Dowd argues that the Republican 2012 bid for the White House is destined for failure. While dissecting Romney's and Santorum's campaigns, she alludes to Freud and ancient Greek tragedy. And her sentence "The horse has thrown the rider; the dark forces are bubbling" seems to echo these lines from Yeats' "The Second Coming" (especially the first line I'm quoting): “The falcon cannot hear the falconer; / Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; / Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, / The blood-dimmed tide is loosed.”
