Did anyone hear about Rush Limbaugh's anti-Michelle Obama radio rant this week? Among other things, he and his listener criticized her yellow dress for making her look like a "bowl of mustard," and her body type as being like that of a lumberjack. Well, let me be the first to say: well done! Whether people acknowledge it or not, fashion and politics have always gone hand in hand, and I think we have just found Anna Wintour of political couture.
Some people might say, wait Rush Limbaugh? What would he know about fashion? Well, for one thing, you have to live it to know it, and Rush has been proving himself quite capable of staying chic for some time now. It's not many who can rock the rotund-and-balding look, but Rush has successfully dressed for his type with great panache.
For example, look at this picture of him! The dirty pinkish shade of his shirt is wonderful masculine version of this spring's popular coral trend. And look how it offsets his pallid doughboy skin! Furthermore, it accentuates the gentle roundness of his stomach without overemphasizing the meatiness of his shoulders, all the while flattering the natural chunkiness of his head. And keep in mind, folks, that this was just for a backroom radio program. As he has proven on many occasions, he has an arsenal of suits that pay homage to the frenetic political culture by looking simultaneously arrogant and pieced together in two minutes. And he is an expert at deploying them to for maximum body boxiness.
So bravo, Rush, for bringing appearance back into the political conversation! Of course a fiercely real man who rocks his shock of silver and unique, boulder-like bone structure is just the guy to criticize our overly adulated First Lady and her perfectly toned athletic build! And the natural candidate to opine about her classy sheath dresses and elegantly layered ensembles is the guy who knows what works for him and wears it over and over again in different incarnations!
So there you have it, guys. The Andre Leon Tally of talk radio. Fashionistas and political junkies everywhere, rejoice!
APRIL FOOLS!!!! OR SHOULD I SAY, APRIL FOOL? RUSH LIMBAUGH IS A RIDICULOUS LITTLE MAN AND I HOPE HE DEVELOPS A DEEPLY IRRITATING AND INCURABLE RASH IN HIS MOUTH THAT PREVENTS HIM FROM SPEAKING.
