Ann Romney Presents a Cartooned Personality

When Hilary Rosen made a crack about Ann Romney having "never worked a day in her life," little did she know that a hilarious firestorm of media coverage, late-night jokes and cartoons would ensue. The newest plays on the whirlwind of political drama of the election campaign of 2012 features Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's wife Ann Romney. Mrs. Romney, a mother of five, has publicly refuted Rosen's cracks about her life choices, leading the political conversation away from just feminism, to the affluent wealth her and Mitt enjoy.

As a result of this incident, Ann Romney has become a much bigger media spectacle and an ever-growing part of the campaign, leading to more media ridicule by popular late-night comedians Jimmy Kimmel and David Letterman.
