The Top Ten Characters Lynn Doesn't Realize Are Underdogs - Number 4

I had originally intended to award this spot to one of the other 'evil' characters whose 'evil' consists mostly of keeping the Pattersons in check but it seems a lot more appropriate to discuss Mira Sobinski today. What she represents to me is the gullibility of the Pattersons marching in lock-step with their hatred of being someone else's subordinates. This is why Mira is pretty much behind the eight-ball: she used 'family politics' to gain a privilege which Elly and Lynn think she is not entitled to, precedent be damned. Y'see, Patterson women are transfixed by the delusion that the mother of the bride's job is to do what Elly does and butt the Hell out because they share Meatball Head's lunatic belief that a wedding is a great big party all about her. Mira did what society demands of her and thus 'won' and must be slapped down at every turn lest her evil family politics force the Pattersons to do things they don't want to do such as 'get a real job' or 'buying his own God-damned house instead of displacing his parents and sisters.'
