“It’s Over, Lady!”

Let's get all the hilarity out of the way and count every nitty gritty "ity" word used in today's Maureen Dowd column:
Unity(1) was spared the banality(2) of unanimity(3).
Carmella Lewis, with her Hillary T-shirt and Hillary placard, came all the way from Denver to make sure there would be plenty of ambiguity(4), duality(5) and ferocity(6) in Unity.
Just as Hillary was testing out the unfamiliar familiarity(7) “Barack and me” Friday and talking about “his grace and his grit,” Carmella began loudly booing and waving her sign.And the Movies With Maureen®; goes back to West Side Story:
This amenity(8) did not stop the disunity(9).
Standing between the Sharks and the Jets, David Axelrod took pity(10) on an older friend of Carmella’s who was suffering from aridity(11) in the Unity humidity(12).
But the former president can’t stand being a loser, so he’s taking it out on the winner. When it comes to Bill, there’s a lot of vanity(13) but very little humility(14) in Unity.And in this week's inexplicably tin-eared call-out, is there perhaps a less appropriate Tom Wolfe allusion to the grandson of a Lau tribesman than flack catching with the mau-maus?
It’s hard to fathom why Obama should be mau-maued into paying off the debt that Hillary and Bill accrued attacking and undermining him...And with that we can go back to questioning Maureen's sanity(∞).
