Pigeons of America!
If only PeaceBang wasn’t semi-down with a cold and desperately trying to finish an article and a sermon, she would write a much more substantive post about Hillary Clinton’s quasi-Nehru suits and uniform. For now, let me say that HRC has been extremely strategic about her appearance and been just as wise (IMHO) to settle on a uniform of monochromatic suiting. What she has done is taken the traditional, generic male suit concept and had designers reimagine it for her figure and her historical moment. Tailored. The off center buttons are lovely. Simple but elegant head to toe. No “creative” or trendy details to distract or generate stupid articles or diversions. Almost futuristic in its Star Trekian lines. Beautiful, striking bracelet. Mumsy earrings. I notice an improvement in tailoring from earlier versions of this suit. Her people are figuring out her how to tailor her pant legs.
When you are poised to become the first woman President of the United States, a country whose most influential export is the Hollywoodized, pornographic version of femininity — a country with a bunch of misogynist, fundamentalist Christian legislators in Congress and a population of Kardashian-addled mouth-breathers who can’t think critically about much of anything EXCEPT women’s looks and bangability factor, you can’t take be too careful.
Consider: just this week, her opponent argued that he could not have possible committed sexual assault against certain women because they weren’t sexy enough.
Not because he wouldn’t otherwise grab them by the vagina, but because they’re NOT HOT ENOUGH.
So Madame President has this modified Nehru suit going on last night for her third debate, and it’s no accident that it’s white (cream) and that it’s — dare I suggest — a wee bit clerical around the collar? [Click images to enlarge]
Trust me when I say that every inch of this look from head to toe was strategic. Whether or not the designer of this suit meant to invoke the clerical association or not, I cannot say. I am heading back to bed after doing another neti pot flush and will Google details later.
Swing state pastors, please tell me that you are out there registering voters like mad.
