Just two years before, seven Republican women (and two Democrats) ran. But the media yawned. In 1992, the evening newscasts aired 29 stories exclusively devoted to women Senate candidates.

Likewise, in the race for governor, Democrats are going with '70s nostalgia. As open-mike moments go, Carly Fiorina has just had one that might be called a happy gaffe. Sure, it's a little undignified to be caught on video dishing your opponent's hairdo at the start of a Senate campaign.

Just hours after winning California's GOP Senate nomination, Carly Fiorina was unknowingly captured on a live microphone trashing her Democratic rival Barbara Boxer's hair. "God, what is that hair?" the former Hewlett Packard chief said, quoting a friend. "Sooo yesterday,"

    NPR.org, February 13, 2005 · Do you like the Whack-a-Mole game from the old arcades? Would you really want to be the Mole? Michael Kinsley apparently would. He's the relatively new editorial and opinion page editor for the Los Angeles Times. And over the past several Sundays he's invited a series of critics of the Times to beat the paper up -- in the paper's own editorial pages. The first guest Kinsley landed for the guest column? Blogger Mickey Kaus, who writes a feature called "Kausfiles" for the online magazine Slate -- a skeptic so severely disposed against the L.A....
