There is a complete set of playing card (52) along with two Jokers. Maureen Dowd has been a columnist for The New York Times Op-Ed page since 1995. She started at The New York Times in 1983 serving first as a metropolitan reporter and then (in 1986) in the Washington Bureau. She was named "Glamour" magazine's Woman of the Year in 1996, won a Pulitzer Prize for her columns on the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and received the Damon Runyon Award in 2000. She has been accused of "duming down her subject matter through the lens of pop culture" (Kevin R. Kosar in the NY Press). As an example--in her October 26, 2008 column she referred to the Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, as "Caribou Barbie."
