"No Girlfriend of Mine"

I couldn't agree with Maureen Dowd more, quoting Caitlin Flanagan (from today's column, Hillary la Francaise, Cherchez la Femme):
To call her husband a philanderer is almost to whitewash him, for he’s used women far less sophisticated, educated and powerful than he — women particularly susceptible to the rake’s characteristic blend of cajolery and deceit — for his sexual gratification.

In case you're interested in the Caitlin Flanagan's piece in The Atlantic Monthly, that Dowd cites, it's in the November issue (currently on news stands), and if you're a subscriber you can read it here.
