Miers Postmortem: Even Airheads Piling On
You know, you shouldn't mistake our honest-to-God astonishment at the engineering feats that come together as one to form the complete sartorial aspect of Harriet Miers as mere cattiness. For that, we have Robin Givhan, who sashays headlong into vapidity in today's Washington Post. The justification? "It was easy to spend time studying Miers's appearance because there was only the thinnest paper trail to compete for attention." Shorter version: My employer doesn't trust me around paper trails, just vapor trails.
Amid the various critiques of accessories, the use of eyeliner and some half-hearted Camille Paglian flings into the realm of gender politics, it's this piece of simply earth-shattering reportage that stands out:
