Now, I don't get political on my blog. This is...99% of the time... a fun and goofy place. And I don't want this post to be political, per se. Even if it is about a politician....it's not about that politician's politics...if you get my drift.
But I do have to bring to your attention a very serious issue that the media seems to have largely ignored. An issue that something has GOT to be done about. Not just for the good of our nation, but for the good of mankind.
I'm talking about Hillary Clinton's horrible collar choices.
It's been an issue for YEARS, but her absurd collar facination reached its peak hideousness at this year's Iowa State Fair:
Who let her appear in public wearing this? She's running for the highest office in our great nation...doesn't she have a campaign manager or something? The gingham print...I guess I understand because she was going to a state fair. But what is with the gigantic neck hole bordered by a 4" tall stiff collar? Is it so she can take it on and off without unbuttoning it or messing up her hair?
That's when I started looking at older photos of Hillary and realized that this affliction of hers for bad collar choices has been building for some time.
I think it started innocently enough. Who among us hasn't donned a Mandarin style collar and found it flattering?
But then the collars started getting a little too stiff
And a little too high
And then the neck holes started to grow
Yet no one said anything and the travesty continued its downward spiral.
Don't you try a charming wink at ME, Hillary. That collar is out of hand.
And you can't just put lace on it and call it "fancy" either. You look like your neck is the center tier of a wedding cake.
I think it is about time that we, as a nation, demand that these collar atrocities cease. Need I point out AGAIN that Hillary Clinton is running for President of the United States? Do you know how much influence such a person can have on the fashion trends of the times? Just look at Sarah Palin...love her or hate her, there's no denying the hair bumps that started appearing EVERYWHERE after she became the Republican VP nominee. If we don't stop this collar aberration now...we will all be walking around in jackets that look like we're wearing a dog's cone of shame come election day 2016.
Also...I have a theory about from whence Hillary's collar pathos came.
I have read numerous accounts of how, when she was a child, the young Miss Hillary Diane Rodham wrote a letter to NASA, beseeching them to allow her into the Space Program. She claims that they wrote her back telling her that women couldn't be astronauts and crushed her ambition for participation in manned (wommaned?) space flight.
I think that Hillary's crushed dreams of being part of a mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before created a deep seated unrequited longing. A longing that has manifested itself in her poor clothing choices.
Observe and tell me I'm wrong:
They allow women in space now, Hil. It's time to let it go.
LET. IT. GO.
