“Oh, Rob.”

Ann Althouse laments:
What’s the point of writing about fashion if you can’t say cutting, critical things?

The old Robin Givhan, the snarky, reliably leftist fashionista at the Washington Post, assigned to cover Michelle Obama, finds herself with little critical or even interesting tidbits of snark. Not one piece of snark can Ms. Givhans give up.


Has Michelle Obama really scaled the heights of fashion in our nations’ capital? Is she really America’s answer to Princess Diana? Are scads of American women running out to purchase clothing like Michelle’s as they did when Jackie O reigned as our nations’ First Lady?


Is Mrs. Obama more of a Laura Petrie or an Aunt Bee?

My fashion advice to Mrs. Obama: wear less black, and more colors. Watch your hemline. Smile more. Enjoy fashion. Keep weeding the garden.

Americans enjoy having a first lady who looks good, smiles a lot and has interesting causes. We don’t care for pushy women (or any unelected spouses) who intrude themselves into the business of the government.

Stay out of the West Wing. It’s definitely not good for fashion.

We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven’t had any tea for a week…
The bottom is out of the Universe.
~Rudyard Kipling

Tea should be taken in solitude. ~C.S. Lewis

All true tea lovers not only like their tea strong, but like it a little stronger with each year that passes. ~George Orwell, “A Nice Cup of Tea”

A Proper Tea is much nicer than a Very Nearly Tea, which is one you forget about afterwards. ~A.A. Milne

Spring is always the best season for Tea Parties.

I’ve been out of it for a while, but expect to get back to normal blogging in the next few weeks. Americans need to keep holding stronger and more demanding tea parties. It’s true that tea is good for solitude but our nation needs to keep drinking some strong, coffee and do what we have always traditionally done with tea.

Sissy Willis expresses her thoughts on why she is a tea party woman. Hear her Roar!

And, yes, woman need to take up the cause in honor of great women like Abigail Adams.

Forget Oprah. Abby has always been where it’s at.
