In Praise of the Internet

Seen recently at the Vancouver Sun – and elsewhere on the intertoobs:

Wow. Thanks to Ann Romney for making Sarah Palin look good. Here’s what she said earlier this week at a Moms for Mitt group near Philadelphia.

“Why should women be paid equal to men? Men have been in the working world a lot longer and deserve to be paid at a higher rate.

“Heck, I’m a working mom and I’m not paid a dime. I depend on my husband to provide for me and my family, as should most women… and if a woman does work, she should be happy just to be out there in the working world and quit complaining that she’s not making as much as her male counterparts.

“I mean really, all this wanting to be equal nonsense is going to be detrimental to the future of women everywhere. Who’s going to want to hire a woman, or for that matter, even marry a woman who thinks she is the same, if not better than a man at any job. It’s almost laughable.

“C’mon now ladies, are you with me on this?”

No Ann, we’re not.

Now, I don’t doubt for one nano second that those quotes represent what Ann ‘I’m the white daughter of a white millionaire and I married a white millionaire and cranked out five white boys, so of course I know what its like to raise non-white children while being non-white and making minimum wage’ Romney actually thinks about the class of people that she’s trying to con into voting for her husband.

However…

I do have trouble believing that she’s sufficiently untrained to speak that freely with her master’s husband’s self-declared birthright on the line in the upcoming election.

Thus far, other than that Vancouver Sun blog posting…

…I’m tending to see that quote pasted onto facebook posts and in places like the Drudge Retort (yes, it fooled me too.) Consequently, I suspect that the quote might not be real.

But, I’m simply reporting what I’ve seen elsewhere; the fact that its out there is a story unto itself, don’tcha know – and, in all honesty, I think Ann ‘I’m the white daughter of a white millionaire and I married a white millionaire and cranked out five white boys, so of course I know what its like to raise non-white children while being non-white and making minimum wage’ Romney should be forced to admit or deny making the statement…

and, of course, if she denies it – she should be asked if, nevertheless, the content thereof is actually what she believes.
