Do Women like Pelosi?

(AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)My wife does not like Nancy and the ferocity of her dislike has me bemused. I have seen this behavior before in women. Her complaint appears to be focused on the red cape. Naively I assume there must be something else that “really” triggered this strong response but experience has taught me to not ask any more questions. I have been down this path before and I have learned not to go there anymore. Never is there a greater gulf in the communications between a husband and wife than on a subject like red capes.
