I feel bad for the politically-conservative women of the Tea Party who haven't gotten past the high school behavior most of us hated. It takes too much energy to keep that whole "mean girl" shtick going in the real world.
This journey is our first return to China since we brought PunditGirl home and made her part of our family in 2001. I can't believe it's been that long; I feel like it's been a lifetime since we stepped off the plane.
