The VP Has No (Proper) Clothes

Really, what was he thinking? The Washington Post Style Editor reported that on the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, our VP appeared in the front row of the ceremony in a Nordic ski parka, with fur-lined hood, lace-up hiking boots, and a ski cap embroidered "Staff 2001." All that was missing was a can of Bud Lite and his "sled." There is something stapled to the string of his hood ... a ski pass? or a hunting pass from his trip with Justice Scalia? Honestly. Other foreign leaders and dignitaries were properly attired in dress black coats, dress black gloves and shoes, to mark the somber occasion of the liberation of the Jews from this death camp, victims of the worst atrocity in the history of the world.

Where were his "handlers?" Where were the administrators of protocol? What an embarrassment. He can dress up for appearances in debates, inaugurals, and Meet the Press. But representing the United States on this occasion? I guess not.
