It’s time to give the oath of office to your shoes…

September 16, 2008


Blog Guy, a couple of days ago you showed pictures of Sarah Palin’s shoes, and said that was an important part of covering prominent women. That was just a joke, right?

Uh, sure, if you want it to be. On the other hand, this photo here shows Sarah Palin’s shoes at a campaign appearance in Colorado yesterday, and below you can see three different pairs of former candidate Hillary Clinton’s shoes from her campaign for the nomination.

But these women were making history!

You bet, and someday one of those pairs of shoes just might be on our dollar bills! Gives you goosebumps, doesn’t it?

I am completely turned off by pointy shoes.
And though I appreciate the shape that heels can give to a woman’s calves, I have to question the judgement of someone who would voluntarily walk around like that if he/she didn’t have to.

I can’t believe I missed this post last month, especially given the importance of this issue.

[…] is asked: Blog Guy, a few days ago you did an item about how photographers cover the shoes of women candidates. I think you were just putting us on, and I’ll prove it. What kind of shoes did Sarah Palin wear […]
