Well, it’s Sunday, so it’s time for funnies with Maureen Dowd!
Suckas! Didn't even have to read Maureen Dowd's column today to know what she'd say since she's been putting out the same drivel for 70 yrs.

Thanks, but I'm not wasting my Sunday by reading semi-literate commentary by Maureen Dowd.

No worries. We are givers. We read so you don’t have to. With some help from Twitter users, natch.
Maureen has really outdone herself. Now Ted Cruz is to blame for a DC apocalypse. Seriously. http://t.co/u9LokMemek

Writing lots of columns is hard. I've written very bad ones myself. But this…someone should have intervened. http://t.co/UW5TB3ZyL7

Did Dowd just take a long walk off the short pier of her sanity? Is it time for an intervention? You be the judge! (But hint: Yes.)
Here is just a quick snippet from her New York Times “column,” titled “Welcome to Ted Cruz’s Thuderdome” (no seriously):
Thomas Jefferson’s utopia devolved into Ted Cruz’s dystopia.
Law and order broke down as police, who were not getting paid, eventually decided to stay home. The fanatics barricaded in the Capitol dug in, determined to tear down what their idols, the founding fathers, had built. Darkness soon devoured the rest of the country.
“Whose fault was it, Papa?” the boy presses.
The man tries to explain: “The Grand Old Party, the proud haven of patriots who believed in a strong national security and fiscal responsibility, was infected with a mutant form of ideology. It was named the Sarahcuda Strain after the earliest carrier. Remember when you saw that old science fiction movie, ‘I Am Legend’? A scientist described the virus that burned through civilization as being like ‘a very fast car driven by a very bad man.’ That’s what happened: In the infected Tea Party politicians, brain function decreased and social de-evolution occurred. They began ignoring their basic survival instincts.
Of course a snide Sarah Palin sneer had to enter the mix, too!
Read the whole thing, but fair warning: It’s not safe for your brain.
Oh, MoDo. Bless your delusional heart.
I just can't with Maureen Dowd today. God bless.

Twitter users are in agreement: Intervention STAT!
I for one think it's admirable that Dowd lets kids ghostwrite her column. Wait … she wrote this? http://t.co/iTfP8DXIyH

The NYT OpEd section is motherlode of mental illness this AM, even more than normal.

Most folks would believe Maureen Dowd lost her mind years ago but I think it just became official this morning.

Finally, Maureen Dowd reaches her apex. Or nadir. Whatever. http://t.co/iFrBf1XafA

Someone should tell Maureen Dowd to stay away from the metal polish: http://t.co/orJ3qITIxT

Thanks to Maureen Dowd, the NY Times just officially jumped the shark.

Waiting for Miley Cyrus to tell Maureen Dowd she needs to sober up.

I've got a column to write but can't find where I put the mushrooms. #DowdMethod
— Matt Cover (@MattCover) October 6, 2013
Quite the tale by Maureen Dowd; bitter dystopia and, well, apparently no knowledge of which party runs Washington DC. #TequilaNotForEveryone

The side-splitting continues with this exit point:
I was anti-shutdown. But, if this is the reaction from people like Maureen Dowd,, I'm all on board. It's working.

Aching sides! Dear Maureen: Thanks! Keep “writing.”
