Of Macho Politics and Marshmellow Men

The New York Time's Maureen Dowd has an interesting take on the election. In an article in today's NYT Dowd said that the voters were sick of the "deadbeat Daddy party," and ready for the "sheltering Mommy party." Dowd also said that the Republican attacks against Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi just didn't work. "Americans wanted new drapes, and an Armani granny with a whip in charge," Dowd wrote.
Dowd went on to say that the Republicans had become a caricature of bloated politicians afraid to go off to a war of their own making, but happy to sit at home making millions.
