OOOOOklahoma, Where The Wind Comes Sweepin' Down the Plain


Since I was under a self-imposed media blackout last Thursday, I did not see photos like this until just yesterday. Now, I acutally have nothing in particular against the First Lady. She seems to be a sweet, perfectly nice woman but tell me please what on earth is she wearing and who on earth told her to do such a thing??? The wonderful ladies at one of my new favorite blogs had this say about it:

"Any inaugural occasion would seem to demand something more formal than what is basically an extremely oversized shirt. The horrendous backdrop coupled with her Little Ma On The Prairie getup gives the impression that the President randomly showed up at a production of Little Mary Sunshine, and wandered on-stage during the curtain call to congratulate the cast."

I know, I know, jokes about fashion are way too easy. But slightly related, did anyone see the Jenna/Barbara sketch on Saturday Night Live this weekend that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey did (who are by the way, two of my favorite women to have ever been on that show)? It was the funniest thing I've seen on SNL in quite a while.

Oh, and before anyone accuses me of not being fair and balanced, I am quite aware that Hillary dressed herself in a number of doozies back in the day. However, I had not yet discovered the world of the internets back then. :-)
