Hey, Jack.

Saying someone is snarky isn't calling them a name.

Read some of the posts on this board - especially the ones from liberals in response to conservatives - if you want to see what name calling is.

Someone who writes and is said to be 'snarky' simply indicates, Jack, that they are (especially in Ms. Dowd's case) petty or snippy, or sometimes simply waspish. All terms that are pretty descriptive of her writings.

Snarky is just a good ol' descriptive adjective - not a name, Jack.
