News Roundup for 4/12/12
Hilary Rosen, according to rightwing blogs
-Headline of the Day-
“Conservatives Attack Hilary Rosen For Raising Children As A Lesbian.”
You might’ve heard about the rightwing outrage of the day. It’s easy to miss one, since there’s always a rightwing outrage of the day and they all sort of run together and who can even keep track of them all?
Anyhoo, it seems that some lady named Hilary Rosen went on the CNN and said that Ann Romney “hasn’t worked a day in her life.” Team Romney went all mental over this, saying it was an attack on stay-at-home moms. No one bothered to point out Ann Romney’s not your average SAHM, since her husband’s a bazillionaire and it’s unlikely she doesn’t have a household staff. But hey, you take your outrages where you find them.
By the time Romney was done with Rosen, she was a White House adviser and a strategist for the DNC. It’s about here that things started to go off the rails. See, she’s not. This is a typical Romney “messaging” move — otherwise known as “complete horseshit.” Rosen’s more of this kind of party strategist — i.e., the kind that plays one on TV.
But of course, the rightwing blogosphere is never satisfied with just plain horseshit. They demand horseshit with frosting. So the right went and did some digging and found out that Rosen’s a lesbian! A lesbian who’s raising kids with another lesbian! It’s at this point that I imagine many of them shit themselves.
By this time tomorrow, they’ll have connected her to Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky, and Skynet. (ThinkProgress)
