Via Samhita, here is Mitt Romney's tremendous new ad entitled "Dear Daughter," designed to appeal to women (lulz):

Over images of a thin blond white woman and her white baby, and accompanied by piano music, a female voiceover says: "Dear Daughter: Welcome to America. Your share of Obama's debt is over fifty thousand dollars, and it grows every day. Obama's policies are making it harder on women. The poverty rate for women?—the highest in 17 years. More women are unemployed under President Obama. More than five and a half million women can't find work. That's what Obama's policies have done for women. Welcome, daughter." Then, in a suuuuuper patronizing soft voice specially for delicate lady-ears, Mitt Romney says in voiceover: "I'm Mitt Romney, and I approve this message."
LOL! Well, I'm convinced!

Full Disclosure: I am not convinced.
