In past elections, political analysts talked about the importance of wooing soccer moms. Years later, the term "security moms" entered the political vernacular. And now, in an iVillage interview, Andrea Mitchell, one of NBC's leading political correspondents and host of her own show on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell Reports, says 2010 may be the year of a new crucial voting bloc: "angry" and "ticked off" moms and non-moms.

Asked by iVillage's Chief Correspondent Kelly Wallace about which group of women voters might hold sway on Election Day, Mitchell responded, "I just think the angry moms -- the ticked off moms -- and non-moms, the women who just want to come out and say I want to be heard."

Sounds like Tea Party rhetoric to me.

Do you think the "ticked off woman" had an effect on the elections?

I've never heard the term, so I wouldn't know. And luckily I don't know any of the angry loons who follow someone like Sarah Palin and her ilk, which is where I imagine this idea came from. She's a bulldog with lipstick, right?

This last election had so many quacks running, it's hard to pinpoint what swayed the elections except that people are unhappy with the economy.

Honestly, I don't think this is the right board for political debate, so I'm bowing out.

I haven't heard the term "Angry Mom" either.

I haven't heard the term either. Our state is such a mess right now, due to Gov. Christy, that I was dismayed to see many of the issues I wanted resolved didn't go through.
