Interesting reading out there in the land of political garbage...I just read an article regarding an interview with Republican candidate, Mitt Romney's wife...you know, the potential first lady with Multiple Sclerosis? Or maybe I should say the FORMER first lady of Massachusetts? She DID serve in that role already while Mitt was governor of the state.
What is very interesting about her (and her hubby's) situation and disclosure she has MS is this: Nobody really seems to care. The mass media is too focused on the notion this man is...I say with a "religophobe" whisper...close your ears all you Right-Winged Protestants...A MORMON! How could it be so?!?
I am chuckling with delight over THIS one...the man has a wife with MS, is a Republican, AND he practices the Mormon faith...the only thing better would be if he were gay!
Most likely his wife's MS will take a far back seat in his bid for the Presidency, which is actually somewhat sad. After all, it's rare Multiple Sclerosis GETS this kind of national exposure...and it sounds as if MS has taken a back seat in the life of the former Massachusetts first lady as well, which is NOT sad...I don't wish this disease on anyone and she seems to be doing quite well, or so she says. (Of note: Both Mitt and wife oppose stem cell research for religious and moral reasons...just thought you should know.)
My biggest fear is, the extremely strange and FAR right-winged from this man's political affiliation, will somehow tie in his wife's MS to some type of affliction GOD has given her because of her religious beliefs!!! She's a (said with a whisper) MORMON after all! And you know that dude from Kansas who goes around protesting at funerals? Well, this would be right up his...ah...alley!
Bless their hearts...Mitt Romney isn't someone I'd necessarily choose for President, but we all deserve a far chance. I just hope the MS cause doesn't get slung with the mud (and crap) that's about to fly over THIS one...
