Someone suggested to us at the end of Donna Edwards’ concession speech after she lost to Chris Van Hollen for the Senate seat currently occupied by Barbara Mikulski she should have dramatically dropped her microphone.
In her scathing comments she decried the plight of our state as she lamented we were about to send an all-male contingent to represent us in the federal government.
That would be a bad thing according to Edwards.
Her concern, a well-founded one, is that women and minorities are underrepresented in government.
But her logic fails because she implies that under no circumstances should it be okay to have just male members of Congress representing the state.
What if the shoe were on the other foot? What if someone were to say there should be, under no circumstances, an all-female contingent from the state representing us in D.C.?
Why we’d have a politically correct fit and a right proper one at that.
