Carter’s Back, Dynasty’s Back. Can Clinton Be Far Behind?

Oh dear. There was much to love about the 80’s, but style wasn’t one of them. But now that 80’s style shoulder pads are definitely back, I’m afraid I’m going to have to come right out and say it: big shoulders on women are a really, really, not good idea.  I know they’re all about that power suit trip that even smart women bought into back in the Reagan era. But I was there, and I’m telling you honey: no matter what direction it takes you, it’s going to be bad. To wit:

Bitchydynasty bitch


Deformed beyonce


Well, maybe not dumb. Just completely clueless.

But still bold. Nancy did issue a statement regarding the constitutionality of universal health care. And she’s never even read the Constitution! So apparently those power suits really do work. Although Nan, as I recall, breaking down when conducting your business was considered a career killer the last time we dressed for success. So buck up, OK?

But I digress. My real concern is about how this is going to effect ME. I’m afraid I’m going to have to go in for a retrofit on my wide angle trans-imaging lens. It worked OK in the ‘80’s with the original wide-shoulder look; not that I had to employ it much for Nancy Reagan – she was no bigger than a popsicle stick. But now, I’m going to be doing wide-angles on Lady M’s shoulders and her ass. I’m going to need a little help here.
