I have nothing against Ann Romney at all. But, yeah, if you’re a surrogate and you do an interview with someone who makes 1/200 of what David Gregory makes, you better answer the fucking questions (via):
Anchor David Nelson: “Here in Iowa, as you know, same-sex marriage is legal. Do you believe a lesbian mother should be allowed to marry her partner?”
Ann Romney: “You know, I’m not going to talk about the specific issues. I’m going to let my husband speak on issues. I’m here to really just talk about my husband and what kind of husband and father he is and, you know, those are hot-button issues that distract from what the real voting issue is going to be at this election. That, it’s going to be about the economy and jobs.
Anchor David Nelson: “Do you believe that employer-provided health insurance should be required to cover birth control?”
Ann Romney: “Again, you’re asking me questions that are not about what this election is going to be about. This election is going to be about the economy and jobs.”
Anchor David Nelson: “Well, a Pew Research poll shows those issues are very important to women, ranking them either “important” or “very important.”
Ann Romney: “You know, but I personally believe, and this is what I’m hearing from women all across the country that they are going to look for the guy that’s going to pull them out of the weeds and get them job security and a brighter future for their children. That’s the message.
Let’s raise a glass to David Nelson and all the middle-class journalists who show up everyday and do their fucking jobs. And let not the high-priced fellatio of the Beltway gigolos reflect poorly on their honorable profession.
