Longer answer: Puppet lets you specify what configuration you want without worrying about how to get it. In that way, it is similar to SQL (where you specify what data to retrieve) or Nagios (where you specify what you want to monitor on the network). This is a higher level of abstraction than a procedural language like Chef -- kind of like saying, "Climb that mountain" without concerning yourself with the details of what approach to take, what gear to bring, etc. (Matter of fact, Chef might make a dandy implementation language for a Puppet clone.)
