Ann Romney gave a wonderfully delusional interview on Radio Iowa today on behalf of her husband's campaign, which, as we all know, is going super well right now. Thankfully, Ann was able to do her part to contribute. To her husband's detractors within the Republican party, she had this to say:
"Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring," she said.
Just stop, you guys. No, really. This is harder than it looks. Also, "Get in the ring" - just look at those fighting words! She went on:
"This is hard and, you know, it's an important thing that we're doing right now and it's an important election and it is time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt's qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country."
Yes, Republicans everywhere consider themselves very lucky to have someone as clearly competent as Romney for their candidate now.
In a speech earlier in the day, she had another good line:
"The real measure of a person is not how much money we make, but how we live our lives," she said.
Which is true, although perhaps not the best point to make if your favorite hobby is training dressage horses and your husband is in the midst of a scandal because he made obtuse, condescending, factually incorrect and needlessly divisive statements at a closed-door fundraiser set up by sex party-throwing hedge fund manager.
