Articles about the work of Jonathan Martin

Liz Cheney

A New York Times article about a possible U.S. Senate run by Liz Cheney incudes this passage: "Ms. Cheney, the mother of five school-age children, has become ubiquitous, appearing many times in communities over 300 miles from home."

This struck me as faintly disapproving verging on sexist, as if the Times reporter was saying, "shouldn't she be home with her children?" I can't recall a similar formulation being used by the Times to describe campaigning by a male politician with school-age children.

Similarly, the article says, "Ms. Cheney, a State Department official in the administration of President George W. Bush, is a pugnacious partisan and has called President Obama 'the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office.'"
