The above having been established, the Department of Homegirl Security takes enormous umbrage at  the remarks of Tim Gunn, purported fashionista, on George Lopez’s talk show.  Any woman who must stand, sit, walk in front of cameras, sometimes in the wind, who is  past mini-skirt age (an age self-determined by the individual woman) can understand why our turbo-SOS opts for pantsuits. On these pages and elsewhere, Hillary Clinton has, in fact,  been dubbed “The Secretary of Style” and not only by older women.  Younger women like her fashion sense as well.  She is a role model for them.

Confused about her gender?  That coming from a fashion maven of the male sex is ironic indeed.  Her spring into summer fashions,  pictured above are delightfully feminine,  breezy, and even a little tease-y!   She looks lovely, comfortable in her body (very feminine and curvy) and her clothes.

To do the diligent job that she does and look so exquisite  while doing it is spectacular, in our book, and deserves a better review from someone who actually deals with similar work situations (me).  I love the look!  I have acquired nine ruffled tops, some chiffon like hers, to combine with my pantsuits as a result. .  Yes, I also wear pantsuits.  I love them!   I wear necklaces as well.   None of the above make me feel like a boy.  I feel deliciously feminine dressed almost exactly the way the SOS is dressed – different suits, different blouses.

So back off Tim Gunn!  As for George Lopez, you should be fired.  I am boycotting TBS!  Does the name Robyn Givhan* mean anything to you?  Where is she now, anyway?   Anywhere?  Seriously.  If there is a person on earth who is NOT confused about her gender identity, it is Hillary Clinton.  She knows  exactly who she is and uses it brilliantly to our advantage.  You should be thankful!   So back off!   Quit your treacherous flaming.  She’s our SOS and doing a stupendous job while looking sublime!

I am linking to Jezebel’s report of this idiocy because I love the retort at the end.

Tim Gunn: Hillary Clinton Dresses Like “She’s Confused About Her Gender”

Elizabeth Warren Out: Report

There’s no better way to ruin a weekend than having somebody replace you at work. President Obama has reportedly chosen his nominee for chief of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and it’s not early favorite Elizabeth Warren, a source told Bloomberg News Friday.

Why do I have a nagging thought at the back of my head that this announcement, coming at this particular time, is inextricably tied to conversations going on behind closed doors at the White House between the Republicans and the erstwhile POTUS?

Did I require yet ANOTHER reason not to support Barack Obama for any additional time leading from behind?  No!  Leading from behind whom?  My guess, from behind the GOP!
