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.

Gillibrand in Vogue (Norman Jean Roy)

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.)

Kendel Ehrlich is a mean drunk and everyone in Annapolis knows it. After Tuesday it will no longer matter. Put a fork in the Ehrlichs, they're done!

Well I guess Mrs. Ehrlich's response validates the assessment.
