Remember when Sarah Palin's people spent six figures on a wardrobe makeover? Man, did the media go wild! I mean, how easy would it be to prove she was an inbred hick with the intelligence of an Alaskan Salmon unless she was dressed in a bear-claw coat and fishing boots, right?
Seems like a different stnadard is being applied to a Democrat (stop me if you've heard this one before), or in this case, the high-profile wife of a Democrat. You see, it appears as if Michelle Obama went out and bought herself some new sneakers the other day. No, not some canvas Converse or a trendy Sketchers or an ethnic-pride pair of Air Jordans or even a solid Nike running show.
She bought these:
Made by French fashion label Lanvin, they go for the modest middle-class price of $540-.
Let them eat cake, right, Michelle?
"They're shoes," the First Lady's reps sniffed when curious reporters inquired about the fancy footwear....
They're $540- "shoes", Michelle. Something to think about when you and your husband are targeting the earnings of America's middle class, who can barely afford to send their kids to dancing class or karate. You can bet those Americans, weeping as they see their tax bills, are not walking the dog in $540+ "Lanvins"...
