Familiar

OK, so Talking Points Memo has this thing about some lawyer lady, the improbably named Cleta Mitchell, who's, like, totally defending Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell from people calling them retarded 'n' stuff. The article is fully ugh, boring, impossible to read. What made it doubly impossible for me to read was that I kept staring, transfixed, at the picture of her:

All I could think was HOW DID SHE GET CONDI'S SUIT? Condi, check your closet! You've been robbed!

Nothing on the suit, but don't these spokes-folk know about lenses that incorporate two or three prescriptions in one pair of glasses. Or do they feel more intelligent in these down on the end of the nose models?

And what is she describing with those fingers held so close together?

The loom broke before they finished weaving her collar.

Looks way better on Condi...

I object to oversized houndstooth on general principle, particularly when combined with a) a fabric other than tweed, and b) colors that do not occur naturally in tweed.

It does look better on Condi and dare I say the Cleta version... might well be a bad copy? Like when Lane Bryant (I'm assuming) comes out with a style from four years ago?

Why do people think that lowering one's glasses to the tip of the nose makes them more of an expert, or some learned ninja master?

The jacket would look better on her, if she colored her hair to match the color of the jacket, or she got some jaundice in the eyes...

Houndstooth is just an overrated plaid..

She looks like Newt Gingrich in drag.

Holy cow! Well spotted/remembered! If anyone ever doubted that you really did obsessively track Condi's sartorial/coiffurious* escapades, well, they'd better take it back, right now!

* I made that up, because I like how it totally implies "angry" hairdos.

Holy crap. It looks like O'Donnell's eyes are completely black in that picture, or her pupils are extremely dilated. I'm going on the theory that she has no soul.
