I kick off this week’s program by briefly discussing my newest nerd obsession, “Star Wars: The Old Republic” (SWTOR) and my first experience with an MMORPG…n00b style. Is it worth trading an hour of sleep each night per level my character rises?
Moving on to the week in news, I discuss the burden and hardship that Ann Romney had to endure while raising 5 boys full-time with only a mere $250 million in the bank, nannies, personal assistants and custom car elevators.
As the general election heats up – and with Romney becoming the presumptive GOP nominee – the battle for female voters has taken center stage. With the President’s 20 point lead among women in battleground states, the GOP latch onto an unfortunate statement from a Democratic operative as their proof that the President is waging, “a War on Women” by using Multi-Millionaire stay-at-home-Mom, Ann Romney, as their expert (and martyr) on women’s issues in the workplace, apparently.
I’ll ask my single Mom who raised 4 children on her own – while working double-shifts 6 days a week at 2 hospitals – if she feels that Mrs. Romney speaks for and understands average Moms in the country.
