At a pancake breakfast this morning in Moline, Illinois, Ann Romney took to the mic and addressed all of her sisters in robothood. (Sidenote: the Romneys just cannot get enough pancakes.) She started by saying she is "really upset" with Obama's policies, and then tried to get us to bond over our anger: "I love it that women are upset, too, that women are talking about the economy." It's true that women do know what money is, which is one of the few things we have in common with the Romneys. And it's this supposed obsession with money which she'd like to use to secure our votes for Mitt:
Women are talking about jobs, women are talking about deficit spending. Thank you, women. We need you. We all need you in November, too. We have to remember why we're upset and what we've got to do to fix things.
Way to not sound desperate at all, Ann. But you do make a great point. We do need to remember why we're upset. For starters, we should remember that we're upset about Mitt's idea to "get rid of" Planned Parenthood. We're upset that he's anti-choice and that he's seeking to be the head of a party that seems to have far more interest in waging war on women's rights and our access to basic healthcare services than getting us jobs and reducing our deficit. Oh, and we're upset that you made your dog ride on the roof of your car. Just a few things for us gals to remember come election day.
