    I'm willing to give as much compassion to Ann Romney for her MS as her defenders gave for Elizabeth Edwards' struggles with cancer.  Oops, wait, they made fat jokes about her.

    No, I'll rise above that.  I only want to keep it in the mix that Ann Romney's diagnosis didn't come until all but one of her boys had left home (the youngest was 16) and that it's highly unlikely that any part of her life was lived without someone to come help clean at least once per week.

    And the flip side of her choosing to work in the home is that she did that when her husband was actively destroying factory jobs that let other men's wives make that choice, creating Staples minimum wage/clerk jobs that guaranteed an employed parent would have to have other sources of income to raise a kid.

      should be compassionate because of her MS and Breast Cancer.
      I'm sorry, when did any of us bring that up? When did any of us attack her for that?
      Sheesh. I remember the day that Elizabeth Edwards died, FoxNews covered it in about 3 seconds and went on to another story. That weekend, I tuned to Fox to see if they were airing the funeral...guess what? they weren't!

      Two can play that game. But if our side is playing with our opponents we will lose.

      When the operation of the machine becomes so odious that you can't take part,you've got to put your bodies upon the gears;you got to make it stop.Indicate to the people who run it that unless you're free the machine will be prevented from working at all
