Because we all know Ann Romney is evil and rich whereas Michelle is FABULOUS at all times (NB: In case you’re wondering, “fabulous” must be read in best parody sing-song attempt to further mock the media hacks who live by such gross double standards.)
Or, as Lonely Conservative put it: Media Suddenly Takes Interest in in the Price Tag of Clothing of Candidate’s Wife
ABC interviews the horrified designer of a $990 shirt Ann Romney bought off the rack:
The fashion house that makes the nearly $1,000 blouse worn by Ann Romney on morning television earlier this week tells ABC News that they had nothing to do with the wardrobe choice, remarking that they’d prefer to stay out of politics.
“We had nothing to do with it,” a rep for designer Reed Krakoff said. “She must have bought it from Saks or Bergdorf’s, we definitely didn’t send it to her.”
“It’s 100 percent a Reed Krakoff shirt, but we 100 percent didn’t send it to her,” the rep added. ”We don’t get involved politically.”
Translation: Dammit, why could Michelle not have worn our shirt?! It would have been FABULOUS!
No one cared Michelle’s ugly sweater cost over 2 grand.
Or, as Lonely Conservative reminds us, the hideous $500 sneakers worn to a homeless shelter.
No, we’re the tone-deaf ones.
