People Are Parodying New York Times Op-Eds And It's Amazing

It's pretty easy to make fun of The New York Times, but on August 30th, they made it even easier. On that date, the New York Times Opinion twitter account shared an op-ed written by Blackwater's Erik Prince. Prince, the founder of the controversial military contracting firm argued that contractors will save the war in Afghanistan. Seems a little self-serving, no? 

Twitter users immediately lambasted the piece, creating their own "op-eds" written by various bad guys, in support of their bad guy agendas. They're really, really good.
