Liberal pundit and Democratic consultant Hilary Rosen, who made headlines when she said Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life," has a new home: The Washington Post.

The Post, already a liberal powerhouse with its deep bench of Democratic-leaning columnists, today said Rosen will write the paper's "Insider's" column with Republican strategist Ed Rogers.

"Hilary will be a lively addition to our diverse voices. Like Ed, she is an experienced insider with strong views and an original, independent mind," said the paper. According to her online Post biography, "Rosen notes that as an openly gay, Jewish, liberal woman, she has little in common with Rogers other than a love for their respective children."

She alone brought mommy wars into the 2012 campaign when she assailed Ann Romney.

It happened in April when while appearing on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 at a time when the Democrats were accusing the GOP of a war on women.

"Guess what?" Rosen said. "His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing." She later apologized.
