Get me a Bromide, and Put Some Gin In It

Last night I wrote at Firedoglake, with characteristic dismissiveness, about how poor little Ann Romney was sooooo hurt that someone pointed out, correctly, that she’d never worked a day in her life. Boo fucking hoo, and all that. But for the dead-enders of the Republican noise machine, no fainting spell is too fake to repeat [...]
