"Come Here, Fool"
This is a bit of an inside joke about my sallies into Presidential erotica on Althouse, Tuesday, after being requested to. I am too pudique to post what I wrote on Sundries, but you can read my efforts here. Blush.
I think this photograph is outstanding, though. They both look great.
P.S.: Unlike a lot of people, I thought Michelle Obama's Inauguration dress worked for her. It's true that the colour was not easy to pull off. Amanda Carpenter sniffed:
If that particular hue becomes a crayola crayon, I think it should be named "sour sunshine."
Heh. Quite. It also looked like an after-five tea gown, than a noon-time one.
But I'll give our new First Lady this: she looked far more appropriate in her attire than Dr. Jill Biden's hotcha-momma Sophie Tucker knee-high boots, and red coat.
Carpenter also referenced BaBa WaWa's nearly unbelievable remark about First Lady frocks.
Of course, this doesn't matter at all in the big picture. The only one I've heard say it should even be discussed is Barbara Walters, who said on The View, the other day, "I think you can tell what the Administration is going to be like by what the First Lady wears."
I wouldn't go that far, but it is fun for political women to talk political fashion.
Not only wouldn't I go that far, but if this remark is true, it tears what little shred of good opinion I had about Barbara Walter's last remaining braincells.
Look, I can talk about fashion until the Firedoglake bloggers come home disappointed they didn't get into the viewing stands, but there is such a thing as being too vapid. Walters just crossed the line between insightful commentary and kaffeeklatsch nonsense.
ADDENDUM: Stop the presses. I just got a load of Michelle Obama's shoes, which I had originally thought were black court shoes. It seems that they are an unbecoming shade of seafoam green.
God, that interrupts the previous good visual I had of her.
But in better news, I think this photo is remarkable, and so sweet to see the girls standing proudly alongside their parents.
Even the unnatural length of Obama's Brooks Bros trousers doesn't distract from the natural beauty of the moment.
