Hilary Rosen did choose the wrong words. Saying that Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life," is inaccurate, because blah-blah-blah we all know raising children is hard. As is sucking up to your bland yet odious, satanically unprincipled asshole husband. Should he be one. I'm not naming names. And I'm not even going to mention the undoubtedly soul-destroying unzipping kind of duty-thing that has to have gone on in the Romney household to produce those five future flesh-eaters business leaders.
But it's also inaccurate because I think what she meant to say was that Ann Romney never had to raise children the way a lot of women do, whether they're stay-at-home-mothers or not, which is deciding whether to pay the water bill or the PG&E bill, or worrying how the hell she's going to pay for the field trip everyone's so excited about.
I am sure Ann Romney is a nice person, and I know she must break a sweat glow when she has to coordinate the help's days off. Or when she has to come up with new scary threats to make her grandchildren wear those matching clothes they wear for every photo shoot.
But really, here's the last word on the Missus Romney dust-up, from the incomparable Jenny Lawson.
