Read this: Katie O'Malley on Kendel Ehrlich, and vice versa; Kirsten Gillibrand's clothes
"He's running against a really mean man -- and a mean woman."
-- Current first lady of Maryland Katie O'Malley telling Anna Quindlen about her husband's race for reelection at a recent domestic violence conference. (When alerted that a reporter had heard the conversation, O'Malley said, "Don't say that, but he is mean.")
"You'd think after growing up in politics, you would be more mature than that."
-- Former and maybe-future first lady Kendel Ehrlich, in response to O'Malley's comments. From Ann Marimow's story about the two wives on the Maryland campaign trail -- so much in common, so little to share.
Meanwhile, Vogue dresses Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in pretty clothes and claims that she could never, ever wear such things in "fuddy-duddy" D.C. Our critic Robin Givhan calls out Vogue (and maybe Gillibrand?), saying there's "nothing career-damaging, gossip-worthy or problematic" by D.C. standards in the senator's fashion-spread clothes, and in fact, plenty of women here dress like that, so get over yourself, New Yorkers. (Also check out Givhan's live online discussion Monday.)
