Today’s Lady News: Ann Romney Gets An Apology

Today's Lady News photo
  • Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen, whose remark about Ann Romney “not working” recently blew up, has apologized. “As a mom I know that raising children is the hardest job there is. As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen,” Rosen said. “I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended. Let’s declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.” [Washington Post
  • But Rosen is still getting bashed by the Catholic League for being a lesbian who adopted her two children with her former partner: “Unlike Rosen, who had to adopt kids, Ann raised five of her own.” Ooh, that’s low. [Think Progress

Her 17-year-old daughter was also “distraught” over a forced, arranged marriage to a cousin.
