STOP SAYING THEIR MARRIAGE IS FAKE! Oh, you didn't say that? Okay they. Carry on.
I noted this earlier, but I'm still shaking my head about it. From Ann Romney's speech last night:
What Mitt Romney and I have is a real marriage.
Thanks for clarifying that, Ann! But, uh, why?

Was this notion supposed to be controversial, pushback against a scurrilous lie that Ann and Mitt weren't actually married? Did half the Democratic Party believe that their marriage certificate was a forgery? Was a Arizona Vermont sheriff wasting public resources "investigating" their marriage credentials and declaring them invalid? Was Donald Trump George Soros going around demanding that the media better investigate the Romney's marriage pedigree?

Was all of this going on, so deep under the radar that I had completely missed it?

Because as far as I knew, everyone had generally stipulated that yes, the Romneys are married, and will continue to be married until Ann starts hating Mitt as much as the rest of us, or wherever the hell they actually live passes a Constitutional amendment banning human-cyborg unions.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
