Paul Ryan, Please Call Your Tailor
I can’t take it anymore. I can’t look at Paul Ryan.
It’s not that he’ll end Medicare and Social security. It’s not that he’s a phony budgeter who releases a budget with no numbers that he swears will balance the budget that then he admits he never actually ran.
It’s his clothes.
I will be blunt. When I first saw this during Ryan’s introduction as VP, I honestly thought that in the subterfuge to sneak him out of Wisconsin unseen by the press to keep this a big surprise, somehow Ryan had failed to pack a suitjacket and had borrowed a spare from Romney.
I’m dead serious. It’s a full size to big, and a long, where it should be a regular. I don’t understand. There are runway shows where this would pass for a dress, and a modest one at that.
But no–this is how Ryan ALWAYS dresses.’
By now we’ve all heard the excuses–Ryan’s tall. he’s skinny. He works out. it’s hard to find a suit that fits.
That’s what TAILORS are for. Don’t give me that tailoring is expensive. Nearly every middle class an I know has a tailored suit. Ryan is a millionaire. He can afford it.
Instead he appears on television wearing shirts with illfitting collars and balloony waists:
But it was this picture from Buzzfeed that really damned him for me.
Here are Romney and Ryan on soapboxes addressing the crowd. I’ll give you a hint which is which–Romney’s the one whose pants fit. Ryan’s the one with the crotch that’s halfway to his knees.
He works out? he has a fit and trim figure? Then why the hell isn’t he taking full advantage of that? if he works so hard to look good, shouldn’t he be showing it off?
Nope. Apparently he’d rather walk around looking like he dressed in a burlap bag. I’m sorry–Project Runway would send someone home for this outfit. I just can’t take looking at it anymore.
At least Palin knew how to dress.
