When Washington Was Fun??

Digby skewers Maureen Orth, but I noticed this bit:

What I remember most vividly about that evening [a 1964 party on the Presidential yacht when Orth was a college student] was an exchange I had with Bobby Kennedy, the attorney general. “What are you going to be next, vice president or senator?,” I asked rather impudently, because I did not want him to think I was a brainless bimbo.

Very meaty question Orth asked. But I suppose she did leave it for us to discover the amount of brain she has. In any event, as Atrios (he puts them in the 7th grade) notes, Ms. Orth has regressed since then. This article is so sexist and condescending, that it makes a mockery of feminism. It seems "hostessing" is the highest calling for women in certain DC salons.

    and she is good at it.. but this stuff practically skewers itself.
    This article seems like a good read, just belongs in the comedy section.

    Let us never forget the ridiculous Sally Quinn who helped the media elite with all the Clinton demonizing in the 90s.  What a bunch of morons!
