Sarah Plain, um, Palin

Cindy McCain elitist bananaSomeone forgot to tell Cindy McCain that the fashion word on Sarah’s big night was “populist.” Cin’s half-peeled banana outfit was examined by the couture analysts at Vanity Fair and the numbers look like this:

Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000

Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500

Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000

Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000

Shoes, designer unknown, I’m thinking Manolos: $600

Total: about $300,000!

How long until Sarah Plain stops playing moose hunter/hockey mom/sexy librarian and starts sportin’ some real duds? That would make the election season almost bearable.

    Hahahaha…nothing like fashion talk to bring everything back into perspective. McCain had a great suit and Obama needs different shirts, a collarless African one with false bullet holes for the very real damage the reds have been doing him in public opinion. Let’s hope they win and finish destroying the country so that in four years the Ron Paul rebels with reform-minded democrats and enlightened anarchists can fuse their effort to wipe them off for good. BTW, I just quizzed my family and others here in Quebec about the nationalized health care: the system really works well and almost everyone is very proud of it. So I am reviewing my opinions and will probably be wearing one of those green shirt slit in the back at one point in my future, most likely getting my prostate and lungs zapped. Or else I could wear a shark-proof suit , sail into the sunset off the Baja coast in my kayak, pull the floatation plug after ingesting a liter of a mixture of oleander leaf tea with good vodka to speed my way to my maker. Or maybe I’ll just wear nothing but a large stone and my waterproof $9.99 watch and sink into the kelp. It is all so glorious and vain.

    Perhaps you could borrow Cindy McCain’s earrings. They’d be prettier than concrete boots and 6 carats might be enough to take you right to the bottom of the ocean!

    Glad to hear about the Canadian system first hand. After maligning it for years I, too, have revised my opinion. Maybe the US system is just getting worse and worse, or maybe I’ve finally caught a clue.

    Hehee, Marie!

    Maybe the look she was going for was that of the Bond girl. You know… filled with secret power yet able to seduce a gun point into butter.

    Here in the real world some call that cave girl – with ethics reinforced by lessons taught by Jerry Springer’s clan. It may be fun in film and in dance and lower office politics, but it isn’t something I’d put to an accounting ledger.

    I agree she’s not making the most encouraging fashion statement per the vote, but when one walks like a duck and talks like a duck – I’m actually happy at such gilded exposure as it helps my choices. Far be it from me to suggest she order $700 “worn-look” designer jeans!

    Secretly, I’d rather she was wearing automobiles at the equivalent cost of those earrings. The cars would make nice paperweights.

    Pawn the wardrobe. See the world?

    I just don’t think plane tickets versus plain tickets are going to happen for a long time if ever. To know your roots is not to be grassroots. The very awareness is already a step-away and additional steps usually follow. Alas. We need better map-makers, not retro walking stick (mc)cains.

    Lamp rubbers all. I dream of Jeannie be gone!!!!
