Lest they be accused of unevenly heaping fashion scrutiny on one political party over another, the media are on it like red on a rose.
This time, footwear is taking center stage as the Observer notes Laura Bush’s “comfortable, unexciting slingbacks” and Cindy McCain’s “considerably higher, coquettish black peep-toe pumps—hot!” What does this say about life in the McCain White House?
And, last week People magazine gave props to GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin for the “ruby red peep-toe platform heels that showed off a pink French-style pedicure,” that she wore when her candidacy was announced.
Even President Bush didn’t escape the fashion commentary. USA Today noted that he “rolled up his sleeves” to meet with authorities about the Gustav threat. And, as we know, rolled-up sleeves are an international sign for “being President is hard work.”
