Maureen Dowd Is Your New Joseph Campbell

It has long been whispered in Washington wine bars and Jazzercise studios that Maureen Bridgid Dowd is the heiress to the tradition of the great bards of old, those who sang their lusty story-songs ‘neath the Maypole at Beltane and o’er the bonfires below Tara at Midsummer. In her Sunday column, she turns her ageless eye upon AmeriKKKa’s Hero With A Thousand Lawsuits, Christine O’Donnell. Read more on Maureen Dowd Is Your New Joseph Campbell…

Introducing Maureen Dowd’s Magical Half-Human Sister

Down in the bog called Washington, where the menfolk cut the peat to warm the home hearths, they do speak of the passel of Dowd children. There was Joseph, killed by fire, twice. There was Martin, who drowned on dry land. There was the first set of twins, who perished of plow elbow and altar boy’s knee, respectively. There was the second set of twins, who grew to thrive as vibrantly as their brothers did wither, and who did open the finest gastropub in the village. And then, of course, there was the bardic sage, young Maureen, who remembered the Old Ways, and who sang the history of her people. Read more on Introducing Maureen Dowd’s Magical Half-Human Sister…

Maureen Dowd Wrote Something Mostly Good, With Gnomes!

It is easy to lampoon Maureen Dowd when she churns out her usual nutty brew of redonkulosity. But our work becomes ever so slightly more difficult when she types an “acceptable column.” And it is nearly impossible to make fun of her when she writes a genuinely good column, the kind that is actually about politics and actually about something important. Which brings us to the Legend of the Guardians: Tony Blair Is A Fo’ol. (10,000 BONUS POINTS FOR MODO-ESQUE IRRELEVANT POP CULTURE PUN!!!!1!!!!1!!!!)

Maureen Dowd Tosses Herself a Fine Word Salad

This week, Maureen Dowd’s Big Sexxxy Sunday Column contains exactly one interesting thought: “Obama is the victim of the elevated expectations he so skillfully created in 2008.” Well that is very fascinating, Maureen! That would even make a good Thesis for a Column. Too bad this cogent statement arrives 85 percent of the way into an otherwise muddled word salad.

Mo Don’t Get Gibbs

My dearest Mo Deezy: In your Kute Sunday Kolumn, you call for the ouster of my boyfriend, Robert Gibbs. You think his recent Angrytime Yellsrant is evidence that he is adversarial with the press, hates his job, etc. Surprise! You have fallen for a very clever White Haus ruse. Maurizzle Dizzizzle, Robert Gibbs plays a tightly choreographed role predesigned and vetted by Team Obamar. When Gibbsie “lost it,” he was making pretendz, so that people like you (and me, at first) would eat it up. Om nom nom! Read more on Mo Don’t Get Gibbs…

Maureen Dowd Is the Obamas’ New Marriage Counselor

Maureen Dowd is an expert on marriage in the same way that Charles Barkley is an expert on winning NBA championship rings. In this week’s edition of Hot Jamz with MoDo, Our Lady of the Pop Culture References peers into her scrying pool and divines the meaning of notorious Basque separatist Michelle Obama’s need to sometimes go on vacations with persons who are not her husband. In a column that actually has something to sort of do with politics, Maureen’s’s back to telling the Obama White House what they should do. But this time the bizarre thesis of her argument isn’t “Black it up!” It’s “Michelle Obama is too good at being a fun mom.” Read more on Maureen Dowd Is the Obamas’ New Marriage Counselor…

Special Midweek Reblogging Maureen: Cuttin’ ’n’ Pastin’ To Glory

An early-morning tragedy (my camera broke) means your Hot Topix with Michele Bachmann is not happening today (she will return to frothy-mouthed ranting later this week). And so, in an unprecedented move, we summon the spirit of Nellie Bly and examine the legendary journamalististical stylings of Maureen Dowd in the middle of the week. She has literally just cut and pasted emails from 28-year-old author Sam Wasson, letting him write her entire column so she doesn’t have to do the hard work of thinking about the deeply troubling political issue of Why Today’s Romantic Comedies Are Shit.

Maureen Dowd Enjoys TV and Movies!

We journey to the center of the MoDo in order to discover deep truths about ourselves and the world in which we dwell. In this installment, we learn about the teevee shows and the movie-films that Our Lady of the Bleeding Pulitzer enjoys. Also, there are many references to whores! Is Maureen for ’em or against ’em? Or is it maybe more complex than that, complex enough to pad out a column’s word count? Read on to find out! Read more on Maureen Dowd Enjoys TV and Movies!…

This Is What Happens When Maureen Dowd Gets It Right

So, Our Lady of Ginger Devotion Maureen Dowd wrote about how the Molesty Church says the attempted priestification of ladies is pretty much just as bad as making out with infants. And for the first time in the history of Reblogging Maureen, MoDo reached out and grabbed my heart. You know why? Because she’s pissed off, and she means it, and she cares, and you can smell it coming off the page. And she hit a raw spot inside me that even Goo Gone cannot heal.

Maureen Dowd Is Just Not Trying, Ever

Maureen Dowd is the LeBron James of Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times Op-Ed writers: powerful, skilled, and very, very black. This Sunday, her Op-Ed thingy was filled with her many opinions about her basketball-playing doppelganger. You know, most human beings would jump at the chance to leave Cleveland for Miami, especially after spending 7 years in a row there. However, our MoDo is a sainted creature akin to one of the cherubim, and she would obviously not do this thing that LeBron has done. But before we delve into Mo Diggity’s mind-blowing insights about this person who bounces and throws a ball for a living, let’s examine what she might have otherwise chosen to discuss in this, her coveted, well-read weekly spot on the Paper of Record’s most fun page. Let us draw these potentially “important subjects” from the newspaper that still employs her. Read more on Maureen Dowd Is Just Not Trying, Ever…
