RedTracker| If Conservative Republicans hate Nancy Pelosi as Washington top Snake Charmer, Elizabeth Warren, acting head of the newly-created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau must be ready for spot #2. The Wall Street Journal calls her Elizabeth III.
New York Magazine reminds us that Warren has plenty of Mama Grizzlie in her personality, talking basics like “Dang gummit, somebody has got to stand up on behalf of middle-class families!”

There are so many broken parts to the consumer-credit market that no one thing dominates,” she says. “Families don’t have the luxury of encountering only one especially tricky credit product. They run into literally thousands of them. So this is not an agency that can slay a single dragon, say, ‘Job well done!’ and then relax.” via NY Mag
With our new political lens of Mama Grizzlie vs Snake Charmer women, let us make clear that the Snake Charmers believe that the boys club needs watching. Mama Grizzlies say give them all the room they need to make America great again. You decide.
