Project Runway: To the White House

It has been reported the RNC has spent $150,000 dolling up Sarah Palin and et al. That is a lot of money and it probably would have been wise to bypass Barney’s and Saks Fifth Avenue for Macy’s. With that said, as fashionable as Gov. Palin might have been in Alaska, I am sure she needed some polishing to stand on the national stage. There aren’t many of us that wouldn’t need a total upgrade if we were thrust into the spotlights. This is the look Gov. Palin need to show:

The hair could use some work but overall, it’s a good look.

If there is something that we can blast the McCain campaign about with regards to fashion is that they allow John McCain to wear that god-awful blue sport coat with the gold buttons, highlighted with a small-box checkered shirt. Someone should pull Cindy McCain to the side and tell her to get her act together. Wives don’t let husbands look frumpy… especially if you’re worth $100 million.

And then there is this abomination:

Again, there he is with the gold buttons on a blue jacket. MY GOD!!! Are you running for President of the United States or President of the local Moose Lodge? Plus, the jacket is too big and too long. In fact, the pants and the sweater are too large. They should put this Bob Hope ensemble out if its misery. I'm not the only one who thinks this. Check out this post with a series of pictures critiquing McCain's wardrobe.

Now, people are wondering how much does Obama spend on his suits. Well, there is a company called Hartmarx that makes Obama suits. It is the Gold Trumpeter collection and retail for $1500. The suits are 97% wool and 3% cashmere, pleated pants with an inch-and-a-quarter cuff. It’s a good look for him.

They say next to a wife, a good tailor is the best friend a man could ever have. I concur.

Michelle Obama seems to have a good sense of style as well. Unlike Gov. Palin, most of her dresses range somewhere between $150 and $400. Of course, I’m sure she has 100 times more clothes than Obama considering that she can’t wear the same outfit twice.

Joe Biden – Mr Scranton, Pennsylvania – is a very good dresser. This particular outfit seems a bit ornate with the cuff links, lapel pin and the tie making for a busy look. But the dark blue suit and silver hair makes for a classic look.

As opposed to Frumpy McGrump:

Note to self: Place into storage all sweaters received as Christmas gifts by the grandchildren until such time they can be burned or buried in the back yard. Again, Cindy McCain should be flogged for allowing McGruff to leave the house with an alien penis stenciled on his sweater. There is nothing worse than looking old and gay - especiall when your wife looks like a Klingon.

And this final photo is for my own entertainment. McCain’s jacket is too big but who would notice when he’s trying to grab Obama’s ass. It seems as though McCain has a thing for men.

He needs to tuck his shirt in and it wouldn’t hurt to order a little starch. Considering how bad John McCain dresses, having to take Sarah Palin from this:

To this:

is probably the best return on investment the campaign has gotten this fall.

    That was almost sick. But hey, that's what McCain gets for dressing badly.

    Although my favorite pic of Sara is still the one of her in the t-shirt talking to a soldier in Kuwait. Either that, or the vid where she's burning a clip on an M-16 into a target and doing well. Yum-o!

    Great post.

    Sen. Obama and Mrs. Obama look great in clothes because they are blessed with being tall. Clothes just look better on tall people.

    No one thinks Gov. Palin is ugly--she's blessed with good looks.

    She should have her own talk show. I think she'd do well in that venue. You don't have to be particularly brilliant to succeed in that profession, but you do have to be able to talk endlessly about nothing, so it would be perfect for her.

    I think you are correct. Gov Palin is going to be a very rich woman when this campaign is over.


    I saw those pictures as well. I feel the same way when I hear a woman discuss in details the intricacies of a Zone blitz :)

    James, my best laugh in a while. I am still wiping the tears away.

    Take heart dude, I hear Sarah has spent over $15,000.00 on her hair.

    DO you remember when the GOP'ers were slamming Clinton and Edwards for their haircuts?

    Where are those people today? Mike, Dee, care to respond?

    $15,000 on her hair!!?? There certainly needs to be an investigation on her hair stylist because for $15,000, her hair should be much better than what it is.
  6. Satyavati devi dasi Says:

    Seriously is McCain wearing a Teletubbies sweater or was that Photoshopped?

    That's the same Teletubby (with the pocketbook!) that Jerry Falwell was insisting is gay!!

    Is this some kind of hidden, coded "Gay Solidarity" subliminal message he's trying to send to the GLBT community?

    Is this the functional equivalent of flying a Rainbow Nation flag?

    Is it a subtle 'I'm coming out of the closet.. and so is this sweater' hint?

    Where's Fox News when you need them??

    While I agree that McCain's tailor needs to be shot, I have to point out that he's not wearing a sportcoat he is wearing a classic Navy blazer (makes sense with him being a Navy guy). There are subtle differences between the two, and sometimes they are bastardized into splazers, but perhaps the biggest one is the gold buttons.

    McCain is like the anti Dos Equis guy.
  8. James Manning Says:

    I agree, but it's still "your grampa's closet wear" that he is sporting and it doesn't work. The buttons really irk me.
