The Price is Right, John.
Perennial Republican angry old white man, John Sununu, is, as usual, pissed. Doubling as an undercover DNC fact-checker, Sununu called out the First Lady, yesterday, on a conference call with reporters. Sununu has accused FLOTUS of lying about how much she spent on the Tracy Reese dress she wore to the Convention on Tuesday night.
According to the New York Times, the dress in question is a Tracy Reese original and will probably sell in the neighborhood of $400.00, based on similar dresses in the Tracy Reese collection.
Mrs. Obama has frequently worn dresses by Ms. Reese, a self-made businesswoman who happens to be African-American, which in fashion is a rare breakthrough. Ms. Reese’s prices are also in the middle ground. While the dress Mrs. Obama wore has not yet been produced, very similar styles from Ms. Reese cost $395 to $450, which fits perfectly with the Democratic pitch to the middle class.
FLOTUS’s pink pumps (case you’re wondering) were from J. Crew.
Also, according to the Times, Sununu’s miniature spectacles (photo above) are WalMart readers (+3.00) that go for $3.99, on sale, and his flash red tie, at $4.99, is from the J C Penney “Power Broker Collection” (bought before the One Million Mom’s boycott went into effect).
In concluding, I think that Democrats should interpret this pinhead’s ridiculous allegation as a sign that their convention was a reality based success, with few toeholds for Pants on Fire! accusers; in comparison to the Republicans’ marathon game of liar’s poker, last week.
