Kathleen Sebelius (aka Kathipotamus) is testifying on the Hill as I post.
So far, it looks like fun, although she looked a bit surprised to find out she was going to be sworn in; you know, “swear to tell the truth.” That always complicates matters.
I wonder if anyone’s going to ask her about Lady M’s friend’s who works for CGI? Or if anyone will dare mention the Valkarie’s son-in-law’s potential connection to the HHS contract?
Butt I tell you what – how about we just ignore all the hippopotamuses in the room:
and check out this tantalizing squirrel instead: (h/t HuffPo)
FLOTUS and Sasha coordinated in shades of deep purple, and Michelle kept the hue current with a pair of black thigh-high boots. And Malia's statement-making coat offered a prime example of the grid-print trend we've been seeing all season.
We've seen plenty of stars like Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus and Diane Kruger in sexy suede over-the-knee stompers... though we admit Michelle might make the shoes look the classiest. We've even seen FLOTUS rock the thigh-high height before, namely, on a trip to India back in 2010. (What a trendsetter!)”
“Trendsetter” indeed! Lady M’s been rockin’ boots, both tall and short, since 2009! Here’s just a teeny sampling from our previous boot-trendsetting years, in no particular order:
December 2011: Up Where the Air is Rare
Where we paired the hip boots up with a new style sheath dress, the shar pei:
November 2010: The Star of India has Arrived
Because housedresses, brown paper bags and black suede boot sox say “fashion forward” in Hindi.
December 2010: Historic Holiday Impressions
Because…well, because we can.
October 2012: These Boots Were Made For Walking
“Forward” and over the top!
December 2011: Jackboots, Silver Boots and Thigh-Highs
Because every picture tells a story.
March 2012: Crouching Tigers, Hidden Dragons
These Tory Burches were made for gardening - with panache.
February 2012: St Valentine’s Day Massacre
Seriously: mixed paisley print wrap dress and thigh-highs! Do we rock or what?
Well, I could go on…
Butt all you really need to know is that all of Lady M’s thigh-high boots are custom made by a world famous boot maker who wishes to remain anonymous.
And if Lady M’s totally, completely awesome fabulosity on the fashion front doesn’t completely divert your attention from the dancing Dems up on the Hill:
Well then, there’s still this:
The White House will air a livestream of First Lady Michelle Obama's two Let's Move! events today beginning at 2:40 PM EDT, her office said. Joined by Sesame Street characters, Mrs. Obama will make an announcement "about marketing healthier foods to children," which will be followed by the autumn harvest of her Kitchen Garden.
As Injainjuneer advised yesterday: the garden fairies have been here to restore our Organic Garden of Good and Evil after the Teahadists destroyed it during their anarchist uprising. So we’ll be proceeding with our annual harvest after all.
I better run and get my reflector and refractor shields warmed up. Who knows what MO will wear to this year’s sweet potato harvest?
I just HOPE it’s not those trendsetting brown suede over-the-thigh boots. They give Healthcare.gov a run for it’s money when it comes to holes, gaps and system errors.
And I know I’ll be accused of tossing out another squirrel to divert your attention from the dismal performance of Kathipotamus, butt hey, how often do you get a chance to use a picture of a squirrel in cowboy boots?
