Video: Back to the “Father Knows Best” 1950s with the Romneys!


    I don’t know about you, but I found this video of Laurie Romney – talking about how Ann taught her how to bake pies and stand by her man, gosh golly! (oh no, sorry for the foul language) –  got me wondering if the Romneys have ever watched the movie “Pleasantville” (see the flip for an excerpt). Of course, if they did, they’d probably think the first part of the movie – the “father knows best”/”honey I’m home!” part – was paradise, while the rest of the movie – where people, both men and women, start becoming fully-realized human beings – was a horror movie.
