'Miss Ann' Romney is More of the Same

But a leopard cannot change its spots. the Romneys are who the Romneys are. They are super-wealthy Brahmans, who endowed those five sons with a little bundle--$100 million tax free--and their profligate personal wealth has come back to haunt them already. When the happy couple appeared on a morning television interview, Miss Ann was wearing a garish silk tee shirt by designer Reed Krakoff whose "most abiding aesthetic interest is the use of design to convey privilege."
The shirt with an ugly image of a yellow falcon was bought off the shelf in some fancy boutique for a mere $990. That's right. She spent $990 for one ugly tee-shirt. And she wore it on national TV.
I'll bet you $100 that the wives (or concubines) of all Mitt Romney's team owner pals, and other vulture capitalist friends, all recognized Miss Ann Romney's ugly $1,000 tee-shirt right away, which is why she wore it...so "certain people" would notice it, and think her clever for having worn it. Those people are not women who rear children without the help of maids and nannies and cooks, but rather are women just like her, who have never worked a day for pay in their lives, and who don't have a clue about how the rest of us feel about anything.
