2008 Fashion Report

John McCain needs a fashion consultant. I’m very far from one, but that’s probably why it matters a bit (If even I, while wearing an NR sweatshirt, notices…). His black sweater today bothers me — and it’s not the first time I’ve been bothered by his fashion choice. The black highlights the white hair — so, again with the ”old” — and the sweater makes him look smaller (gone the shoulder-bolstering look of a man’s suit).

This matters more when you consider some of the options people might have. Fred Thompson has an imposing physical presence. That superficial thing is the first thing you notice, so it’s not nothing. Rudy looks like a New York Italian bad a**.

I saw Mitt Romney not too long ago looking like he clearly lost weight — his suit looking too big for him — and I thought Dude, you gotta eat some red meat (not just serve it up — though that certainly helps too). Your country needs you.
