Equality at last!

Some time ago, when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State — one of the most powerful people in the friggin’ world — she was at a forum about foreign policy and the conversation went like this:

MODERATOR: Which designers do you prefer?

SECRETARY CLINTON: What designers of clothes?

MODERATOR: Yes.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Would you ever ask a man that question? 

And she was absolutely right.  The press always seems to talk about what female politicians are wearing, as if they are movie stars or something, and as if that mattered one bit.tan suits

Good news, everybody!  We have finally reached equality, because the right-wing media has decided that it matters very much what male politicians are wearing, too!  They’ve criticized Obama for wearing a tan suit recently, because tan suits are … um …  well, I am not sure why.  Presidents aren’t supposed to wear tan suits or something.

I am not making this up.

But hey, at least they’re discussing his fashion choices, which is just as important and relevant as which designers Hillary Clinton likes!  Equality at last!

By the way, because you know I was going to, here’s a collection of previous Presidents wearing tan suits.

Yes, we tan!
