Oh My God

Hi! I just got off the phone with Sparklemom, and part of our conversation went something like this:

Sparklemom: You're back!
Me: Yup!
Sparklemom: I just had to call and find out if you saw Cindy 'n' Laura's speech for the hurricane today.
Me: Ooh, no, I missed it.
Sparklemom: Well! Cindy –or Barbie, as your father likes to call her– had on the cutest outfit. It was kind of a shiny, gold number, and she wore it with the collar up.
Me: Oh, that sounds great!
Sparklemom: It had long sleeves, though, so I couldn't tell if she still had the pink cast.
Me: That's a shame.
Sparklemom: But her hair... her hair was really cute.


And it's true! Her hair was so totally cute! And I think her outfit is absolutely glam-jogtastic! Sparklemom is always right. God, I wish I could see the shoes.

What, did you want me to talk about Sarah Palin or something?

Looks like a yellow rain slicker in homage to Gustav, the savior of the RNC shipwreck.

Yes, yes we did. It just keeps getting juicier!

Tell Sparkledad that Cindy looks more like what happened when I left Barbie and Skeletor alone in the toybox for the weekend, with a case of Coors Light.

You missed an entire Palin hairstyle cycle.

It’s too petite to have been purchased from a Garry Glitter bankruptcy auction. Perhaps custom made from a Thunderbirds episode?

the shoes

OMG! They are wearing each other's shoes! I just knew they were throwing down the xanax with jack chasers backstage at the neo-Con!

When was the last time someone wore gold shoes with a white suit?

This is a hotter tip than the whole "Shotgun Granny Palin" story. I swear.

That collar up look makes me feel a little tingly...

eeeeeeeew!!

Cindy's toilette looks, somehow, like a standard (if somewhat emphatically pleated) princess-line shirtwaist that has had a member's only jacket surgically attached.

Knowing that she was also wearing black-patent open-toe fetish pumps only makes it that much more, well, whatever it is.

OMG, indeed! I know if political guys get really expensive haircuts it's like a mortal sin or something, but you can bet your bottom dollar she didn't get this fabulous look at Supercuts.

And the outfit! Duran Duran! Flock of Seagulls! Kajagoogoo!

Matty -- I'm sure Limahl has an outfit just like that!

To quote Mr. Blackwell on Suzanne Somers, ca. 1980, she looks like she was caught in a flash flood.

You have to give Cindy credit for breaking out of the monocolor jacket and skirt/pants mold that both Crazy Eyes and Hillary are in. Still, that color is not right for her. I suspect she picked it to keep all attention on her and off the Joker there.

Matty Boy said...

I think Terry is on to something, but I think Cindy is trying to grab attention away from Michelle and Jill and now Sarah. This outfit, especially the gigantic ROPE of pearls shouts out:

"You may be younger than I am, you may be cuter than I am, you may be more likable than I am, but I'm RICH, bitches, and your scrawny asses AIN'T!"

Nothing exceeds like excess.

Cindy's 'collar up' look is stolen from Maleficent, Sleeping Beauty's nemisis.

They must've been doing shots like Zipdrive said: just look at Cindy's expression! She's positively "euphoric and free," if you know what I mean.

I need to say thank you!!! You have provided me hours of entertainment at my boyfriend's expense.

He is a gay Republican (not log-cabin...he's just not THAT self-hating) and he loves Pickles!! AND I LOVE calling her "crazy eyes" when I refer about her to him...which just makes his face pinch into something I can mock and guffaw over!!!!

justjenny said...

OMG. I. LOVE. HER. HAIR. Almost to the point of wanting a McCain presidency so I can look at her hair all the time.

Matty Boy said...

The Huffington Post is now reporting that yellow magic monstrosity cost $300,000.

O... M... F... G!!!!

Of course, it's worth every penny.

I would hate to see Pres. Bush throw one of his "I don't wanna eat my vegetables" temper tantrums at the dinner table and ruin that nice ivory piece Laura has one!!
