Decline and Fall of the American Op-Ed

In this morning's Post, Kathleen "Save the Males" Parker expresses her ancient POV:

...And though it isn't over yet, it seems clear that McCain made a tragic, if familiar, error under that sycamore tree [when he selected Sarah Palin]. Will he join the pantheon of men who, intoxicated by a woman's power, made the wrong call?

Had Antony not fallen for Cleopatra, Octavian might not have captured the Roman Empire. Had Bill resisted Monica, Al Gore may have become president, and Hillary might be today's Democratic nominee.
And had MoDo not won that Pulitzer, newspapers might not be overrun with such vapid female voices.
