As NewsBusters reported Sunday, Newsweek/Daily Beast senior contributor Michelle Goldberg called Ann Romney “insufferable” on MSNBC this morning.
As Mark Finkelstein previously noted, Goldberg began her Romney attack on Up with Chris Hayes by saying, “It can’t only be me that maybe initially saw Ann Romney as maybe a sympathetic or neutral figure but who is increasingly seeing her as someone who is kind of insufferable because of the way she’s milking this thing.”
This “thing” as Goldberg put it is motherhood. What an awful “thing” for a mother to “milk” the week of Mother’s Day.
“You know, yes, motherhood is beautiful,” Goldberg continued. “I found that phrase ‘the crown of motherhood’ really kind of creepy, not just because of its, like, somewhat you know, I mean, it’s kind of usually really authoritarian societies that give out like The Cross of Motherhood, that give awards for big families. You know, Stalin did it, Hitler did it.”
