BONZAI!We do not care if that nice Ann Romney’s shirt cost $990. The lady is a billionaire or something, she can buy silken togs. (This, like the “private chef service” that so enraged the National Review when working mom Moochelle Obama dared avail herself of it, falls into the category of “aspirational wealth” that most working women would like, and mostly see no problem with!) No, here is what concerns us regarding that nice Ann Romney’s sartorial choice: it also came with matching pants.

So if that screaming eagle up top is about to tear into that nice Ann Romney’s poor defenseless right nipple, well, where exactly would the screaming eagle on her crotch be headed? These are the things that keep us up at night, worrying and fretting and pure-cold-sweating: that that nice Ann Romney might be attacked in her nethers by carnivorous birds with beaks and talons sharp, just so she can walk around looking like a human version of Stephen Colbert’s studio. Oh, and also that she’s got shitty taste, because gross. [Politico]

    That's the most action her nipples got in 30 years.

  • Barb

    Yeah, like she's ever known the pain of getting her tit caught in the wringer of the washing machine. She's not sure which one is the washer and which one is the dryer.

    • Jus_Wonderin

      I have to wonder if she knows where in the house they are located?

      • Well, they're in the south, in the east and west and up north, over by Tikrit.

      • She'd have to ask Jeeves.

          Jeeves is the Washer. Jeeves Too is the the dryer. Also.

      She's only dimly aware that such things exist, and certainly doesn't give a hoot. (Yes, I expect the next look to be an owl.)

    • KotBR

      Silly Barb. In the Romney household, Juanita is the washer, Esmerelda is the dryer. What fun is being rich if you can't make immigrants hand wash your clothes?

      • mormos

        jerb creation!

        • Jus_Wonderin

          You are probably right. She has to visit the Household Cartographer to visit the vacuum cleaner and ironing board.

    • JustPixelz

      Nonsense. The washer has short brown hair. The dryer usually wears a necklace.

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Isn't the washer the one the maid loads everything into first?

          That transition is almost as jarring as the one Hillary Clinton went through when Bubba started playing on the big stage (but hers was less about skin and more about hair and makeup).

          So when do you think the work started? Was it standard rich bitch maintenance, or did she do the "hubby is becoming a public figure, I gotta go Stepford" package?

          • Limeylizzie

            I think it was fairly recent, I really noticed it when she and Mitt were in Pennsylvania.

        • From that same awful site:

          VAN SUSTEREN: Governor, you have been married an awful long time. What was it about your wife? Why did you marry her?

          M. ROMNEY: She was gorgeous. That's the reason I took her home. She came with somebody else, and I said, you know…

          VAN SUSTEREN: At this party?

          M. ROMNEY: At this party. I said, you know…

          ("you know" what? like, "hey Ann, would you like to fuck me?")

        • ibwilliamsi

          Thank you for posting that. I have been looking at the top part of the blouse all day long and trying to figure out where everyone got an "eagle" out of a "goldfish". Now I'm trying to figure out where everyone is getting "eagle" out of "Sea gull".

        • Fare la Volpe

      She has had soooo much plastic surgery that she looks like a reject from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

  • IncenseDebate

    Something ain't right about her.

    • She's as robot-y as he is, just with better animation. Nothing that comes out of her mouth is ever particularly intelligent and she has even less knowledge of how the 99% live than he does. As least he meets one once in awhile firing "it." She had a maid when she was a child.

  • randcoolcatdaddy

    Ann … _real_ Republicans wear actual dead animals, not frilly designer reproductions of animal carcasses…. sheesh….

  • When I first looked at that pic for a second it looked like an odd nip-slip.
    Designed by 'Reed Krakoff'. More like Reed Crackon.

  • Poor eagle…did it break its beak on the stone?

  • BornInATrailer

    In an earlier thread Goonemeritus mentioned the balance between meeting the needs of the guys vs. the gals, what with all the Obama posts. If this is an attempt to find balance, I think I speak for all when I say Ann Romney's nipple does not cut it.

    • Ann Romney's nipple could cut diamonds

      • Damn you!

      • NellCote71

        Newt has some for sale. Prbly.

    • sullivanst

      I found the Obama posts considerably easier to fap to.

    • Cuts diamonds, yes, but not it.

  • Jus_Wonderin

    I hope the eagle doesn't contract some dread disease. I bet the most that will happen is the eagle will elect to be a stay at home mom, to raise her boys and be very, very defensive if someone makes a comment about that election.

  • Tundra Grifter

    Is that a screaming eagle? To me it looks like a large fish. Foul, not fowl.

    Butt ugly. As always, 2L is quite correct.

    • Yeah, more like koi swimming into her armpit.

    • Jus_Wonderin

      I thought it was a Loggerhead Turtle. Oh, you mean the design. Not that blonde female thing.

      • WunkRocker

        101st Airborne Libel!

    • BerkeleyBear

      It is a bird, but definitely not a bald eagle – I'm thinking some sort of waterfowl like a seagull. Although what is underneath it almost looks like a turtle's shell. Ugly as hell, whatever it is.

    • Warwhatgoodfor

      Japanese fish. The shirt itself, $9.99 at T J Maxx

  • Boojum

    At least they weren't WOLVERINES!!!

  • Reminds me of a t-shirt I had back in the summer of '76. Cost me $8.50, and I thought that was steep.

    And are we sure this isn't something Snowbilly picked out in '08, on the RNC's dime? They said they were going to do something with all that tacky shit.

    • Believe me, Ann Romney isn't into hand-me-downs.

    • HistoriCat

      $8.50 in 1976 is about $34 today – yeah, that's a lot for a t-shirt.

  • WeHaveIssues

    She kinda has a bird-like face. Love the precision of the "natural" platinum blonde hair though, a color and style that works so well for First Lady McCain. Spawn of the Ice Queen?

    $990? Shit, I've seen shirts like that in the men's section of Academy for $19.99. I guess it's true: money can't buy class or taste.

    • Baconzgood

      I think Elvis proved that to all of us.

    Bonzai is the tree, Bansai is the cry of the suicide plane-dropper-on-er

    • BerkeleyBear

      Actually, bonsai (bone sigh) is the art/hobby of growing trees in weird ways. Banzai! is the war cry. Trust me, you never forget the look an old Japanese man gives you if you say the latter in praise of his windswept spruce miniature.

      • Y'know, I knew that, since I've grown a couple in my day…but Japanese was never my strongest language.

        • EtchySketchy

          Also, Bonzwei is the Japanese term for "Rich Fuck who insists it's their time."

          • bagofmice

            Bonzwei, when parsed in a shared Latin / Germanic context would translate as "good"/Latin "Two"/German. Which seems entirely appropriate given the subject of the thread.

  • Is this some kind of Rorschach test? Because I see a photo of a fish vomiting. What do I win?

      A fish vomiting her nipple? That makes more sense.

  • Hmmm. Maybe the outfit was a gift, from like one of the daughters-in-law or something, and Ann's trying to be polite by actually wearing it in public.
    If so — it's pure, what-to-get-the-gal-who's-got-everything shopping selection FAIL.

    Brett or whatever his name is–the cute guy at the end of Jennie's program (she's welcome to call me DustBowlBlues if she likes) compared the shirt to a tablecloth at a Japanese restaurant.
