    Well, you can curse the darkness or bless the light. I choose light.

    This toon assumes the rate of addition of women senators is linear. If it’s more exponential or logistic, we’ll be at/near parity much sooner. That’s my hope, and it’s not too unreasonable since there is a generational shift afoot.

    I do not care who is elected if they remember it for the people not the person.

    Yes. We certainly need more people like Boxer, Feinstein, and Warren having power over every detail of our lives. I certainly have noticed how much better the country has gotten the more female senators we have. Yes, indeed. And they are so, so smart.

    As someone who has been a man for a long time, I gotta say I trust the wisdom of women far more than men.

    This reminds me of a factoid from Stephen Colbert a few weeks ago when he (jokingly) criticised Justice Sotomeyer for telling a muppet that princess wasn’t a career. He pointed out that in America, a total of 4 women have become supreme court justices in our entire history while 8 have become princesses.

    I doubt we’ll ever see parity, not because of differences in ability but because of differences in competitiveness. To win a Senatorial election you’ve got to fight long and hard and dirty, and you’ve really got to WANT the power. Generally speaking, I think that will continue to tip the balance to the guys (individual contests notwithstanding).

    Check the record of Senator Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas (DINO). She took an excessive amount of money from the pharmaceutical industry, and her record shows that it paid off for them.

    I think I ran into one of them in a hotel elevator years ago. She had a five-o’clock shadow.

    Well, aside from the obvious truth of that assumption, my point is: Women can be bought.

    I can imagine these male fossils roaming the hallways back then when the first female senator got elected and they had to install “powder-rooms” for the “ladies”. Or some clueless southerner demanding separate drinking fountains when the first black senator came to DC. “Senator” has a common linguistic root with “Senior”, but what’s going on in that chamber is a joke! Oh, and by the way, I believe the Senate is all white right now (again), and so are all committee-chairs in the House. But racism doesn’t exist in the U.S.A. anymore, or so at least the TEA-party tells the world…
