Obama Fluff, Perfectly Suited
Twitter Nation distracted by president’s tan suit.
That was the headline on the WAPO post, but I beg to differ. Obama’s summery change up was nothing short of a rescue. With ISIS, ebola, little girls taking out range instructors with Uzis and God-knows-what-else threatening to infiltrate Labor Day weekend, the Twittersphere was just desperate yesterday for a flight into mundanity, for some “light weight material.” And the President delivered handsomely. For a day at least, with Obama taking fashion incoming from every quip-meister with a keypad, the Twitterverse — desperate for distraction — was caught up in the winds of wardrobe.
