You know, I think Michelle Obama just sealed my vote for Barack. Not because I agree with her (or her husband's) blithering Marxist Lite claptrap, but because, well, let's face it Party People. The gal can dress.
Neither of the candidates have presented me with a more pressing reason for punching the ticket in their favor. So why not the fact that Michelle has almost overnight raised the stock price for Black House/White Market with her decision to wear one of their $149 frocks for her appearance on The View the other day?
eBay's already all abuzz. There's one up for auction right now, a size 6 petite, that's up to $76 and climbing. Marxist, Schmarxist, capitalism will always win so long as The eBay exists. And Michelle – or, for that matter, Barack – isn't going to be anywhere near Congress, so lighten up.
If Michelle does nothing but serve as an example for millions of American women around the country that you can break out of schlumpy without paying an arm and a leg to do so, well, heck. That's a good thing. Besides, who else was going to do it? Hilary? Sweet Jeebus, that woman set fashion back eons with her dogged polyester pant-suiting. You mean to tell me all that money makes such a succulent sound but it can't buy a decent Chanel?
And, despite the fact that Cindy McCain is an awesomely gorgeous woman, well, let's face it. John did not age well. Sorry to say this, but the man looks like a frog. I mean, could you imagine the two of them posing for a photo like this?
I think not.
Which brings me to this additional point of enlightenment. Maybe, after eight gazillion years of buttoned up Bushes, it isn't change the American people want. It's sex appeal.
