Its funny how that "choice" thing works.

Yesterday, the incredibly wealthy Anne Rmoney was warbling on about how she made the *choice* to stay at home with her five perfumed princes.

Anne, honey, how many other women have the ease and financial freedom to make that same choice? And, finances aside, how many women do you think would make that choice if it were available to them?

You see, they don't have the ability to make the same choice you made. They'd like to. But they can't. They can't because they've been pressed into service to subsidize *your* ability to make that choice.

As wealth shifts from the bottom to the top, the ability to make choices shifts right along with it. The choice to stay at home. The choice to even have a child. The choice of where to live. The choice of what schools to have your children attend. Fabulous wealth makes one fabulously free to make fabulous choices with fabulous exclusivity.

Sorry, Anne. I just don't see you as any sort of authority on the matter of choice.

1. You're right, it IS funny how this "choice" stuff

works. Mr. Romney wants to take womens' choices away from them regarding their reproductive health and family planning decisions.

2. Yes, isn't it funny about the choice to stay home living in wealth? I love her name, Anne Rmoney.

That woman couldn't fight her way out of a paper bag. Useless rich person who's done nothing but be rich all her life.

3. You mega hit this one right on. KnR

Ann Romney has choice because others do not. That is the simple truth of the matter. How sad that she does not realize what she truly represents.

Edit for typo

4. She did what was expected of her, therefore, it wasn't even a choice

and I don't think she gets that.
