It might have been bad news for
Carlos Danger Anthony Weiner last night in New York, but the fashion powers that be are determined to turn his frown upside down by pushing a new design of footwear bearing his likeness.
Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the Creeper.
Well, if there’s a politician out there with bad judgment it’s
Mark Sanford Barack Obama John Boehner Icelandic Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson. A near fatal fashion misstep and now a chunk of the world knows that he has a fungal foot infection and is an idiot.
Photographs and subsequent ribbing arose of Gunnlaugsson (whom for the record has an awesome last name---hey, PD doesn’t hate---okay, usually we do) meeting with Glorious Dictator Obama while kitted out with one (count it) black Nike trainer, and one (count it again) black leather loafer.
It’s not just the Presidential twitter account plugging Austin, or #standingwithWendy.
It’s not the SEIU purple clad protesters, clutching etch-o-sketches.
It’s not the Long Horn orange draped peanut gallery shrieking about the Republican War on Women.

Since he was selected to replace Pope Benedict, a man so desperate to sleep in on Sunday he gave up the papacy, people have been wondering exactly what type of pope, Francis would end up being. Would he be a Marxist, spewing social liberation theology a la George Wallis pope? Would he be a moderate? Would he fight corruption in the church? Would he even acknowledge corruption in the church?
As the old saying goes, “If you want to know the measure of a man, simply look at his shoes.”
If ruby slippers could get the job done for the Dorothy and Benedict, why is Pope Francis passing them up?
Should that be the “It” shoe or the “Ick” shoe?
The word winter congers up thoughts of icy cobble stone and cold pavement. So naturally if you were a designer doing your winter line you’d want something with all of the cushion of a flip-flop and all of the tackiness of a tutu.
