Why would Mitt Romney need an interpreter to deal with working class women?

And how is his wife a good choice for this ridiculous position anyway?

1. Mitt Romney needs an interpreter to deal with working class anything......

No, wait. I said that wrong.
Mitt Romney needs an interpreter to deal with anything other than fellow BlueBloods.

2. Because the only working-class women in Romney's life

are his domestic servants, and the lord of the manor usually doesn't deal directly with the help. So they are alien life forms to him. Ann has probably been the one who talks to the housekeepers and the nannies and the cooks and all the "downstairs" folks.

3. Bingo...

I'd like to know if Mrs. Rmoney knows the price of a gallon of milk. The focus shouldn't have been on her being a mother (the right wing "poutrage" machine was waiting for someone to step into that trap) its on what type of "mothering" she did. How many of us have "domestics"?

This poutrage was a desperate diversionary move by the rushpublicans to try to turn a massive liability around...but it still doesn't address the fact the rushpublicans and their presumptive nominee are against equal opportunity and healthcare for women. Mittens has been trying to hide under his wife's skirt...pretty cowardly.
