best dressed O

You’re probably asking yourself the same thing we’ve been asking around the White House: what took so long? Lady M has been on Vanity Fair’s best dressed celebrity list for ever. And frankly, with all that JCrew stuff, that’s a bit of a stretch – if it weren’t for my special effects.

But BO? Well, we were sweating it after that fiasco in the “mom” jeans and the sissy pitch.

But once again, the MSM comes through for us:

“He’s polished, he’s so well-groomed and he’s beautifully accessorized,” Collins said. “He has a classic American look, but with a little more continental flair.”

No wait, that was Brad Pitt. Here’s what they said about BO:

“He has such a natural ease and elegance,” Collins told Vieira. “He’s completely comfortable in his own skin. He is very much in the tradition of American classic dressers, but relaxed. You just watch the way he rolls up his sleeves and you can see how much he cares about the way he looks, but not too much.”

The best part is that this is a celebrity list. That means that when we leave, by choice or force, the White House, we’ve got another gig lined up. And better yet: a celebrity gig doesn’t require us to do anything! Well, except for me; I’ll have to keep refracting the magic, but I’m ready to move on anyway. Washington can be so shallow.

But in the short term, we’re just really pleased to have something of this magnitude to take the MSM’s mind off of that Health Plan deal and the Cash4Clunkers fiasco.

Life is good. I’m going to go pack for Martha’s V.
