PRINCESS MAUREEN DOWD DOTH PROTEST TOO MUCH, ELITE PENS PIECE SHE’S JUST A NORMAL GAL
Awwww. Poor Maureen Dowd. If you don’t know who she is, she’s a supposed regular gal who writes op-eds for the New York Times. You know, the paper that pretends to be a regular liberal newspaper? But alas, someone recently called Maureen elite, and she kind of freaked out. So how much did she freak out? Well, so much so that she penned an op-ed just to tell everyone how much of a regular gal she is. But the problem is, Maureen Dowd is anything but a regular gal. Over 15 years ago I’d say maybe so. But her elbows have since gotten pretty damn greasy rubbing up on the most powerful, rich people in the world.
MAUREEN DOWD HOSTS PARTIES IN HER GEORGETOWN HOME WITH HER FRIENDS, ALL POWERFUL ELITES
So what happened? Well, about a week ago Dowd hosted a party. Where? In her normal gal Georgetown home. So why? Well, it was for her fellow NYT correspondent Carl Hulse. Hulse just published a book about the Supreme Court. But who came? Well, a ton of power players from Washington, DC. They’re all in her “normal gal” rolodex, don’t you know. These are the very people normal gal Dowd is supposed to hold accountable as a writer at the NYT. But instead, Maureen drinks cocktails with them and eats anything but normal fare, even in her own home!
TWITTER RESPONDS, CALLS OUT PRINCESS DOWD HYPOCRISY, BUT IT’S TOO HOT IN THE KITCHEN FOR HER
But why they brouhaha? Well, Howard Fineman tweeted about the event. And twitter was not kind, calling Dowd elite and out of touch, to say the least. Normal guy Fineman deleted the Tweet, calling everyone haters. But Dowd’s greasy elbows got together and helped her type an op-ed response, calling progressives “Modern Puritans,” and calling herself just a regular gal. Hey, Maureen! Condescend much? A regular gal wouldn’t be so defensive! A regular gal doesn’t talk to her mirror (on the wall)! But even better? A regular gal doesn’t behave like Evita and whine like a supposed saint.
But all in all, that seems to be the New York Times, these days.
