Hard hitting.

No one but the lunatic fringe cares about how much money politicians spend or how rich they are. How they got rich however, is a point of contention with some people.

As a society we care way too much about what women are wearing.

Celebrity fashion gossip.

This is what the GOP considers news.

What a world we live in, where the race for the most powerful position in the world includes treating the wives of the candidates like walking mannequins.

Actually people made fun of Ann Romney's shirt that costs more than most people make in a week because it was hilarious.

It's almost as if the question of the Romneys being "in touch" was a ongoing story.

Although I don't remember any "media firestorm" I take anything broadcast by Fox with a grain of salt.

I don't recall hearing anything about Ann Romney's shirt.

And I would not feel in any way cheated had I NEVER heard about Ann Romney's shirt.

I made the point that Michelle Obama's $6800 jacket was worn at at a formal reception thrown by the Queen for foreign heads of state and dignitaries prior to the Olympics, but I got shouted down for it.

Wife on Subby's new squirrel nuts t-shirt: You're not wearing that out of the house

mamarita feels the same way about my Total Fark Dutch Rudder Team shirt. No sense of humor whatsoever.

Next time we have a news story about someone's shirt can it be about Natalie Portman or Jessica Alba or ... I don't care, really... Stoya? I mean if we're going THAT freaking superficial we might as well just make it an obvious adolescent fantasy thread.

This thread is now about the worst/best tshirts you want to see worn by polticians and their wives.  Let's see Michelle rock this one.

Article made the same point:

an Olympics reception for heads of state at Buckingham Palace

then ignored it.

There's a new clip of the Romney's bragging about buying some shirts at Costco.
These people are weird.

Yeah, the wife wouldn't go anywhere with me if I wore my total fark t shirt either, subbs.

The only place where I've heard anyone complaining about Ann Romney's or Michelle Obama's wardrobe costs have been on Fox News.

I guess all their fembots have their panties in a wad.

Pretty much. I was at a loss to describe the fail that was that shirt.

I did a quick GIS for the shirt and still thought it was a fish, actually forgot what it was supposed to be.

tallguywithglasseson: Also, add me to the "thought it was a fish" camp.

Personally I don't see the point in going on about frivolous stuff like this, and I'm in no way trying to attack Ann Romney or anything like that.

But - that shirt. I did not care for it.

Oh and the headline: actually pretty funny. Nice job subby.

Nah.  If you are going to Britain, you wear something a little more on topic.  Like this.

I took a picture of this gentleman wearing this shirt- seemingly without irony- at the Fourth of July Festival in Boston.

Sadly, this is not Mitt Romney.

He'd probably get a lot more votes if he wore it, unfortunately.

Are conservatives still crying about that ugly farking shirt? No one was making fun of it for being $900, they were making fun of it fore being UGLY.

Oh, it ain't just them. Personally, I thought Mrs. Romney's bird-or-fish-or-something T-shirt was weird, but I don't begrudge her the right to have different taste than me.

I do still think it's a good object lesson in optics 101: if you need to draw attention away from the husband, have them go on TV, make sure he wears a neutral suit with no patterns, looks neither pale nor tan, and make sure the wife wears something very colorful with large patterns or pictures to grab the eye. If she's going to wear jewelry, make it understated but visible; voters can excuse expensive clothes, but they get miffed if you wear a ring that costs more than their house and both cars combined.

As I recall, that shirt went over quite well. It was simply overshadowed by other events.

Are they still throwing a giant hissy fit over Michelle Obama's jacket, worn when she met the freaking Queen of England, versus Ann Romney's shiatty bird shirt, worn to a television interview?
 
2012-08-27 11:45:24 AM
I thought most of the controversy of Ann Romney's shirt was "WTF is that thing?"
