Roseanne Barr: 'I Call Bulls--t' on Ann Romney's 'Claims to Have Worked Her Toned A-- Off'

Comedienne Roseanne Barr took to the Daily Beast Monday to offer her vulgar opinion on the Ann Romney-Hilary Rosen dustup.

Not surprisingly, she wasn't taking the side of the Republican wife (vulgarity warning):

I almost got sick to my stomach when I heard Hilary Rosen’s unfortunate words regarding Mrs. Mitt Romney.

It’s a shame that Rosen lobbed the Romney campaign a fat political softball they could smack over the gender fence. It’s especially unfortunate because Romney was on the ropes with American women, at least the ones with an IQ higher than Ramblin’ Rick Santorum’s.

And so it began.

After tearing into Mr. Romney for a few paragraphs, Barr moved on to his wife:

Mrs. Mitt Romney and one of her adult sons took to the airwaves in defense of countless stay-at-home mothers whose husbands are billionaire insurance-company hucksters and corporate raiders, and both represented a decadent and crumbling empire well. Mrs. Mitt Romney claims to have worked her toned ass off, raising five Romney males all on her own, as privileged wives often do—but, no, Ann, I call bullshit on your Big Mama story, girlfriend. Your son may flash that “I adore my mother” grin The son seemed quite vacuous, like his father, really, but perhaps I am mistaken in my judgment of him and of Mrs. Mitt Romney. These were just my perceptions as I watched the son she raised speak on AC420 or whatever they call it. It doesn’t seem she did too good of a job, given that her son exhibits such a low level of moral awareness. Was he a passenger in the car with the dog roped in a cage on top?cable TV all day as he backs up your claims that you did it all on your own with no help—except from a “lady” who comes in one or two hours a week to help with housework. Of course neither Mrs. Mitt Romney nor her son knew the name of the “cleaning lady,” either, because like 99 percent of rich people, they are oblivious to those women who do work outside the home, even when they work inside the home of the Romney family. I say let’s find that “cleaning lady” (if she is documented) and ask HER how many hours she worked per week over the years.


Next it was on to attacking one of the Romney children:

The son seemed quite vacuous, like his father, really, but perhaps I am mistaken in my judgment of him and of Mrs. Mitt Romney. These were just my perceptions as I watched the son she raised speak on AC420 or whatever they call it. It doesn’t seem she did too good of a job, given that her son exhibits such a low level of moral awareness. Was he a passenger in the car with the dog roped in a cage on top?

Nice of editor Tina Brown to give this disgusting woman a platform to vent her hatred from.

What else is a rag like the Daily Beast good for?
