According to the wires, Hilary Rosen is either a "Democratic strategist" or a "Democratic consultant". If those monikers apply, be assured that Ms. Rosen will be doing no more strategizing or consulting after remarks about the wife of the virtual Republican candidate that were both insensitive and unpleasant, mostly stupid. According to Rosen herself, she is best described as a "pundit," that so often mispronounced word that sometimes appears to describe half the adult population. Somehow, I think Hilary Rosen will likewise not be "pundinting" anymore.
The real official Democrats, including the Boss, ran not walked to disassociate themselves from Rosen's soundbites.
Of course the Republicans made a huge deal out of it, and Mrs. Romney scooted on to Fox to defend her "career choice," and the struggles of taking care of five troublesome boys.
Ann Romney is a breast cancer survivor and has MS, so her life has certainly not been a walk in the park. On the other hand, she has also been able to afford top-flight health care and, for that matter has had access to high quality child care. And "choice" may not be the best word to describe her extremely wealthy lifestyle. At least it's a choice millions of women would have no trouble making. In any case, Mrs. Romney comes across as a very nice woman, and she is certainly a major asset to her husband's pursuit of the presidency. Hilary Rosen should have left her alone, instead of betraying herself as a hopeless amateur. Whatever she is.
