Look outside. A moment ago, was it bright, and warm, and sunny? Did a cloud just move across the sky and block out the sun completely? Did a monstrous shiver just rack your body, as though somewhere a Great Evil had been loosed upon the world?
That is because some idiot claims people want Ann Romney to run for John Kerry's seat in the United States Senate.
Massachusetts Republicans are desperately scrambling to find a strong Senate candidate to replace Scott Brown, with some even trying to persuade Mitt Romney’s wife or son to jump into the race to avert another electoral disaster. [...]
“I’ve had several people call me and ask about Ann Romney,” Ron Kaufman, a longtime friend and aide to the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential candidate nominee, told the Herald.
Hey, anything that will get poor Egg out of the house. But why do these random Republican insiders want Egg to run?
Ann Romney’s inspiring battle against multiple sclerosis and her star turn on the GOP convention stage turned her into a popular national figure, especially among women voters in Massachusetts.
Is it just us, or does this story about her "surging" popularity manage to throw in every possible number but her approval rating? Did we just miss it? Can y'all doublecheck that for us? Anyway, this Hill story relays that as of October, her popularity rating was 56 percent nationally. So we are sure that in Massachusetts, which has loved the Romney clan so long and well, it is at least 117 percent.
Anyway, this story comes from the Boston Herald, which is the classy rag that ran 1,427,592 stories calling Elizabeth Warren a "squaw," so it definitely has its finger on Massachusetts' pulse.
BE VERY AFRAID.
