Casting Camelot Two
So when is the bias-hunting Media Research Center gonna pop a cap in WP style writer Robin Givhan's well-clad ass? Sure, she got all wriggly about Condi dominatrix duds, but not so long after she berates the Veep for wearing "the kind of attire one typically wears to operate a snow blower," she declares that the Roberts family is dressed nice... a little too nice. Admittedly, we don't know much about fashion (no white chaps after Labor Day, right?), but we had no idea that a Talmudic reading of "appropriate attire" could, in fact, discern attire so appropriate it becomes inappropriate:
Dressing appropriately is a somewhat selfless act. It's not about catering to personal comfort....But the Roberts family went too far... In their attire, there was nothing too informal; there was nothing immodest. There was only the feeling that, in the desire to be appropriate and respectful of history, the children had been costumed in it.It's true, we heard their first choice were matching smocks sewn from Bancroft first editions.
Actually, Givhan has something of a point: The Roberts family were in costume. Wonkette operatives have figured out who they were dressed as, too. Talk about sucking up the Dems.
