I May Be Bitter And Lonely But At Least I Have Time To Follow What's Going On.

I am no fashionista myself, but even I have started to question Michelle Obama's taste in clothing. During the campaign she responded to the comments about Sarah Palin's wardrobe costs with surprise, saying that she shops at Lands End or whatever. But now we see her serving the homeless in $600 sneakers and in other pictures carrying a $6,000 handbag. And now we have the outfit at the Vatican. I wonder how much that monstrosity cost us.
I understand that a black dress and a veil are traditional attire at the Vatican, and I applaud her for showing that respect, however, that doesn't make the dress any less hideous. That giant bow has got to go. Hey, I rhymed. I'm sorry here, but it's starting to look like she's taken a page out of Sarah Palin's book and is trying to hide a pregnancy. Either that or all the heavy French food on her taxpayer paid vacation through France went straight to her midsection.
What does this have to do with the price of tea in China, you might ask. Well, the issue for me is that while the rest of us are tightening our belts, losing our jobs, losing our homes and run the risk of paying much higher taxes to pay for the President's agenda, she seems to be having a great time spending the money they're taking from us.
And it only adds insult to injury, and offends me on even more levels, when she is spending my hard earned money on something that ugly.
