Donkeys, politicians and wives

A hindi school textbook for standard IX in Rajasthan compares donkeys with politicians, and houswives. With politicians, well one can understand, but why with wives. Here is why - The offending chapter also gives donkeys a higher rating than wives as "the wife keeps naging" while "the donkey does not complain". Now, of course, since the politicians in Rajasthan are angry, the offending chapter will be deleted from the book, naturally.
