Lawrence Auster of the blog View From the Right agrees with The Thinking Housewife that Ann Romney's top, in her appearance at the Republican National Convention yesterday, reflects a typical example of the sexual licentiousness of the false conservatives of our time.
"Notice the plunging neckline -- unthinkable for a First-Lady-to-be only 50 years ago," wrote Auster in a recent article. "Even that liberal glutton for haute couture, Jackie Kennedy, wouldn't have dipped so daringly low for such an important public speech."
Auster's frequent supporter and blogging ally, Laura Wood of The Thinking Housewife was glad he agreed, and noted:
"Had Ann's blouse closed a mere, say, five and a quarter centimeters higher, our Nation would have been spared that glimpse of freshly healthy white flesh."
Auster couldn't have said it better, he said -- except for one detail:
"Please, let's not succumb to the Euro reflex and measure our words by the metric system: you meant to say: she should have buttoned up 2 more inches."
Laura Wood of The Thinking Housewife didn't have to think about it:
"You're absolutely right, Larry! Shame on me!"
Auster forgave her, steering the discussion to the more important point:
"Bottom line: we concur on the unseemly spectacle Ann Romney made at such a pivotal fulcrum of our history."
"Indeed," said Laura Wood of The Thinking Housewife. "And did her blouse have to be so.... red...!!!???"
"That's another thing," Auster replied, free-associating on a tangent as he is wont to do. "All the commentators I've seen and read describe it as red -- when actually it's really orange..."
"Well, sort of an orange-red, perhaps..." Laura Wood of The Thinking Housewife demurred, passively.
"No, that's definitely not red -- think of a Macintosh apple, or a Santa Claus suit..."
"Or a fire engine!" blurted out Laura Wood of The Thinking Housewife with glee.
"Right, all examples of classic red -- and that's definitely not the color we see in Ann Romney's blouse. I think the name of the color we're looking for is mandarin."
"Yes, that's it -- mandarin! I think I threw out a chaise lounge that color last spring, LOL..."
"At any rate, it was a most unbecoming unbuttoning..."
"That's a good one!"
"Hm, maybe I'll title my piece here that."
"By the way, Laura, what are you doing for lunch...?"
"Oh, nothing much. Paul's still on that conference in Akron -- won't be back before the weekend."
"Remember that little bodega we tried last summer...?"
"The one over on West 129th...?"
"Yes, Pascal's Eatery."
"That's the one!"
"Twoish sound good?"
"I hope you're not doing metric!"
"I don't need to do metric with you, baby!"
"Woops, are we still here....?"
"Oh, right, we better get off. See you after a while."
