We’ve already discussed Michelle Obama and Ann Romney’s shocking Schiaparelli pink outfits at last night’s Presidential debate. So let’s get to the men, shall we?
For the latest installment in our series of GChat conversations with Current TV’s Jo Piazza, in which we glibly analyze the candidates’ style and what it all means, we tackle: Last night’s ties. The President wore Republican red, Mitt Romney wore Democratic blue. What does it all mean?
Jo: Hey Leah. It’s time for us to talk style.
Leah: Yes, let’s open our binders.
Jo: My binder is always open, it’s a problem
LC: That’s a huge problem. Velcro it. Shut it down. We’re off-topic.
Jo: We talked a lot about ties during the last debate. Ties! They make the man!
Leah: They do–it’s really his only style outlet.
Jo: This time Barack wore a red tie and Mitt wore a blue tie–it was like they did tradesies
Leah: They pulled the switcharoo!
Jo: What does this mean?
Leah: I have thought about this…and I think it means nothing.
Jo: Everything means something. You don’t think it was sartorially symbolic of reaching across the aisle via tie?
Leah: Ok so initially, maybe, but then they got into it. There was pointing! There were raised voices! If the ties were supposed to help, they did not. Agree or disagree?
Jo: I agree. Those ties did nothing to keep the peace
Leah: Thanks Jo, you may now close your binder.
