Ann Romney Did Her Job Last Night
At the Republican National Convention last night, Anne Ramsey--I mean Ann Romney--slickly hit all the bases, brimming over with earnest and emphatic love for America and her husband.
Ann started by invoking her fears that real estate isn't destroyed in the hurricane. (And people too, of course.)
And then she started gushing about Mittens.
How he made her laugh.
And how "he was nice to my parents, but he was also really glad when they weren't around," nyuck nyuck.
"I'm still in love with the guy I met at the high school dance," asserted Anne, "and he still makes me laugh.
"A storybook marriage?" she went on. "No, not at all. What Mitt Romney and I have is a REAL marriage."
She even brought up MS and breast cancer.
Like I said, the woman hit all the bases!
And she swore Mittens is a really good guy who doesn't brag when he helps people (hey, that's one theory as to why I never hear about that) and who wants to work harder so we don't have to work so hard.
Truth be told, I can't really complain about Ann's performance. She was polished and did everything she was supposed to.
Except convince me.
