Between his lordly appetites and her queenly prerogatives

I am not wild about Maureen Dowd as a columnist but I keep her on my check in list. There are a number of writers who I think too often bark up the wrong tree but who are none-the-less still engaging writers. It is worth checking in on them 1) to check your own perspective and challenge your own assumptions and 2) they occasionally have a good turn of phrase.

Such is the case with Dowd today, discussing the most recent in the legion scandals and controversies surrounding Bill and Hillary Clinton. Dowd has an excellent two sentence summary encompassing both cause and effect.
The Clintons don’t sparkle with honesty and openness. Between his lordly appetites and her queenly prerogatives, you always feel as if there’s something afoot.
