Lorrie Moore Gets Political

My heroine short story writer Lorrie Moore has written an Op-Ed for the New York Times where she asserts that electing a woman is last year's role model. It seems she's making a case for Obama because he'd be a better role model for today's Lost Boys, who are sadly lacking vibrant men to look up to. She says girls have a whole slew of erstwhile role models, that womenfolk have arrived. We're done.

I found that kind of a puzzling piece, myself. Then Obama praised Reagan, and I found myself hating him. *sigh*
