My eye doesn’t know where to go.
Bright cardigan with a bright contrasting tee. Busy and bright unflattering skirt with a busy belt. Most women who’d decide to wear the tee/cardi combo would settle on black or charcoal slacks or a pencil skirt. Maybe brown slacks or a pencil skirt and a very simple belt. It’s only acceptable because JCrew, ever ambitious to outfit MO, is doing an all brights collection, albeit with simple silhouettes and without boob belts.
Even after T-Paw bowed out, the Republican presidential field is still way too busy. Even after subtracting obvious losers, like Cain, Santorum or Newt. First, there is Ron Paul, who will never drop out, even after being compared to Medea Benjamin, which is what I’m going to do.
I don’t know if Medea, like Ron Paul, supports legalization of heroin, but she certainly wouldn’t mind nuclear Iran. By articulating the most asinine foreign policy non-agenda, Congressmen Paul undermined whatever ideas he has about the Central Bank. Oh, and he also refused to condemn Hezbollah and Hamas. That’s akin to Hitler-neutrality, which didn’t end that well last time it was tried. Quite obviously the other candidates in the last Presidential debate luuurved his stance on Iran. When he spoke, they smiled like sharks in the water: Now is my chance to look presidential, they thought.
Then there is Bachmann, of whom I am very proud for winning Iowa Straw Poll after that ridiculous Newsweek cover. Quite obviously Michele is not an hysteric, I see her as a very calculated politician, who mounted a media campaign against Obamacare and jumped to the top of presidential contenders in this very crowded field. She certainly comes across as uppity. I don’t know why she once said that a wife has to be “submissive” to her husband and what it was about that particular audience that made her think that it would be acceptable, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s the one ruling the roost. Still, running for the highest executive office from a House seat is a losing proposition. If she stays in the race long enough she might cost some votes to the other non-Romney candidate.
I’d very much like a non-Romney. But rooting for a non-Romney is like looking at Michelle Obama and instead of trying to save her outfit, suggesting that FLOTUS start from the scratch and wear something classy. In the real world we have to work with what we have. Some suggest that Perry is too good to be true. American Housewife in London defends him from the charges. Some of the charges, though, like the mandatory HPV vaccine for girls, seem very minor. I think I’m leaning towards Perry.
Unfortunately it looks like it’s Romney’s turn, although 2012 shouldn’t be Romney’s year, Romneycare and all. Mitt needs to put an Evangelical Christian on the ticket to negate his Mormonism… unless he wants to double down on the exotic religion and get a Jewish running mate. A bit like wearing a bright yellow cardi and a bright blue t-shirt. Try to say something about his religion NOW! A ticket like that is like a dare to Obama to revert to the religion of his birth. However, in the spirit of keeping things simple, which is, incidentally, is my suggestion to improve Michelle’s wardrobe, I say he needs to pick an Evangelical.
Then there is Rudi. Russian Jews love him. In my previous post about Russian Jews leaning conservative, I forgot to mention that we are a tough on crime crowd. The largest Russian Jewish community is in New York. So, yes, we love how Giuliani cleaned up the City. I’m not sure what he brings to the field this election cycle, so, I think, he has to be taken out of the equation like unnecessary belt.
UPDATE: Darn! Forgot to mention that one guy whose name starts with an H. He’s from Utah. It looks like Michelle forgot to affix one of her oversize pins.
