I really dislike Ann Romney, but I realized last night that it’s kind of unjustified. Because the truth is, if she’d throw in an occasional “fuck you,” I’d find her hilariously ballsy.
Do you know what I mean? If her affect weren’t “snobby bitch” but was “telling it like it is,” I’d still disagree with her about a lot, but damn, I’d be cheering her on right now. Has there ever–and I mean even thinking back on Hilary Clinton–been a politician’s wife so willing to say out loud which parts of having your husband run for president suck and who’s to blame for that suckage? While he’s running? While it’s actually happening? I don’t think so.
And I will say that, though I don’t like either of them, and I find her to be just ugh, she has his fucking back. And I find that admirable.
