Nothing About Obama Pleases These People

My eyes! They cannot take the uncovered fingers in this photo!

This has to be the weirdest complaint about Obama I have heard yet.

Look at Nick Clegg in the photo [above]. Have you noticed how men’s suit jackets today open too soon below the button, revealing the lower part of the tie instead of covering it? Obama introduced that look. Now it’s everywhere. I’m the only person I know who has noticed it. Do have any thoughts about what it signifies, culturally speaking?

In my view, it subverts the very idea of a suit, which is that it covers the man.

Now, mind you, we're talking about the bottom button being unbuttoned while the top button remains buttoned so that the wearer can sit down and stand up easily. also, the part of the man that is uncovered? nothing. he's still got a shirt on, and likely an undershirt as well.

These people are fucking insane.

  1. Reading how "Obama introduced that look" ( and huh? wtf?? about *that*) reminds me of how Al Gore's off-the-cuff comment about the internet was twisted into something absolutely ridiculous (saying that he was the first politician to really embrace the internet became "I invented the internet" in the minds of the public, natch).

    Dems. Blamed for everything since... always, it seems.

  2. ROFL "I'm the only person who noticed it"

    Notice = find something to be outraged about.
    You just have to speak their language.

  3. So, wait, Obama's a time traveler? Because I've never buttoned the bottom button of my suit jackets. And my dad told me not to button it.

    I'm pretty sure that I've been wearing suits since before Obama became President...

  4. Seems to me the person knows nothing about proper suit coat etiquette.

  5. I'm pretty sure you aren't supposed to button the bottom button. There's some silly story associated with this too, about how one of the British kings was really fat and so he didn't button his bottom button and everyone else in the court imitated him. Does anyone remember which monarch this story is connected to?

    In any event, yeah this idiot is just wrong. And even if he weren't wrong, the notion that this is what he gets upset about...?

  6. Christianity:

    Where it is okay to kill a few 100 thousand people over a lie. But if you are black, you are damned if the whities imitate your fashion faux pas...
