1. Dear Ann

    You’ve come a long way. It’s been over fifteen years since we sat in the first neurologist’s waiting room, looking at his office brochures that described ALS, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis. We could handle anything, I said, as long as it wasn’t terminal. Your right side had been numb for several weeks, and the numbness was spreading. You were struggling to walk up stairs.

    After all the tests, the diagnosis was MS. No cure, but treatment might slow its progress. Then came years of Dr. Weiner’s medical care, innumerable reflexology sessions with Fritz Blietschau, hours on horseback, priesthood blessings and prayer. What a miracle it was four years later to see you run the Olympic torch into Salt Lake City.

    And today, you inaugurate the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases, coordinating research at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital with that of research centers around the globe. You are attacking not only MS, but also Alzheimer’s, ALS, Parkinson’s and brain tumors.

    From one of the wounded, you have become one of the warriors. I could not be more proud of the 15 year old girl I fell in love with almost 50 years ago.

    So is there even any comparison? Ann Romney chose to stay at home and “raise children” as her husband did all the work. Feminist? I think not. She popped out some babies and fed them. Wow. 

    Michelle Obama? Working woman AND mother. She was able to do both. She could live and support herself wihtout a man. 

    Seriously guys, Ann Romney is a joke to women. She did exactly as she was told and cleaned the house and let her husband screw her at night and impregnate her. Nothing special here.

    Michelle is the kind of woman I like as first lady. A true feminist. 

    Ann Romney raised 5 successful children and supported her husband through his very difficult years as Massachusetts governor.

    Michelle Obama gave up (or had revoked) her license to practice law in 1993, long before her two daughters were born. What work was she doing exactly during those years? Please, tell me.

    Michelle Obama now goes on lavish vacations on the tax payers dime and tells parents how to raise and feed their children.

    Ann Romney also has MS you bitch (I’m not nice to those that make fun of the disabled) and she still raised her children herself. She also had breast cancer in 2008 while still being the most visible of all the nominee’s wives. She ran children’s charities in Massachusetts while her husband was the Governor.

    I’d like to see how you would fair, being a working mother and raising children while having MS. Have you ever raised a child? I helped raise my sister and it is damn hard work.

    Ann Romney is an inspirational figure to women.

    You are an ignorant, rude, and ridiculous person. I don’t know where you left your brain, common sense, or tact, but I request you go find them now.

Gay, Conservative, and Proud.
