If Republican socialite Lyn Mosbacher has her story straight, Ann Romney is not too fond of you people, specifically the people who created the Democratic National Committee spot making fun of her tap-dancing, and legitimately therapeutic, horse…
At the convention, they could be seen…giddily relaying how Ann Romney, for whom Georgette has served on the host committee for several fundraisers in New York, privately reacted to Democratic attacks on her dressage-competing mare. ("My horse has more style and more class in its hoof than they do in their whole deal," Lyn recounts.)
It's a valid point, especially if she meant "upper class." Consider how Rafalca compares to the typical American family…
Rafalca Average American Family * Has traveled to London, Leipzig, Germany, and Hertogenbosch, Holland, never once — contrary to persistent rumor — while strapped to the top of a plane. * Only 33% or so of Americans have a passport. * Spends $10,000 per year on clothing. * Spends $1,142 on clothing. * Spends $28,800 annually on housing. * Spends $16,352 on shelter. (Ibid.) * Lives in Moorpark, CA, where estimated household income is $94,013. * On average, surrounded by neighbors with household incomes of $50,964.
Those ad-makers aren't fit to clean Rafalca's stall!
