It Takes a Nation of Moochers to Hold Us Back

“By all accounts, the past month has been most difficult on Romney’s wife, Ann, who friends said believed up until the end that ascending to the White House was their destiny. They said she has been crying in private and trying to get back to riding her horses.” [WaPo, via Political Wire]

Destiny is a filthy liar.

I try to go easy on the schadenfreude, but that article tees it right up.

It just sucks when you have the perfect drapes all picked out and then you lose.

As long as Anne isn’t whipping those poor horses in a fit of misplaced anger.

Poor Anne, just a month ago she felt the presidency was within Mitt Romney’s grasp and the title of “First Lady” was hers for the taking.

Now she must console herself with $250 million dollars and all the bottled unicorn-tear energy drinks that money will buy.

Yes, only he and his “ministers” were able to see his suit.

@flippin eck: Actually, that’s the first human thing I’ve heard about Mitt Romney, ever.

Also: There’s a Boston Market in La Jolla? I thought the place had standards.

@nojo: They flew it in from Boston (you know, the one down by Philharmonic Hall? Near Huntington Ave? Call me old fashioned but I think they get the freshest stuff. The kitchen staff got it heated up right nice) by private jet.

@nojo: Years ago when I traveled to SD on a regular basis I like to stop at a burrito stand on Ivanhoe. Great food. There were a couple of nice book stores in La Jolla as well. I picked up a book on the rivers of the Eastern Shore of Maryland there for a few bucks. Here it would have set me back a lot more.

@DElurker: The joint across from Shakespeare’s Pub claims to have invented taquitos. I imagine theirs isn’t the only claim, but I’ll take their word for it.

@Serolf Divad: Bravo for “unicorn-tear energy drinks”!

Wish I could’ve been there when Ann was in the Anger stage. She probs grabbed Rmoney by the head and rang his brains like a Chinese gong.
