McCain's $550 Shoes

It looks like Senator John McCain has been wearing a $550 pair of Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Pregiato’ Moccasin shoes (see the detailed picture below). Now, this wouldn’t be a big deal since this campaign is about ideas and the direction of the country, EXCEPT that the media made a big deal about haircuts earlier. So, I’m guessing if a $400 haircut is a big deal, then we should hear about several days worth of coverage on how how McCain can’t relate to middle America because of his $550 pair of shoes. TCR has more.

Paul Simon with Diamonds on the Soles of his shoes

Graceland introduced a watered down version of Afro-pop to America. We ate it up. Several pop stars went to Africa or South America to get a “new” sound. Anyway, there were 3 fabulous songs on his album Graceland.

Don't spit on my shoes and tell me it's raining

While the Bush Administration is doing the happy dance and Tony Snow is doing the rounds telling us not to focus on the bad things, the American Embassy is telling a different tale.  Thanks to Randi Rhodes for posting this memo.  I couldn’t find it on the internet but here it is for your reading pleasure!  Are these documents real?  I don’t know.  I can only go on what I have been told.  Editor and Publisher have written a story on this memo so they believe that it is the real deal.  Rhandi Rhodes thought it was real.  She mentioned it on her show today. 

Women being forced to stop driving cars and to wear veils.  Electricity out for over a month is certain parts of Baghdad.  One employee of the embassy stated that he waited over 12 hours in a line for gas.  Tons of other data to support that things are not getting better.  They are getting worse. 

Bush can smile and joke around all he wants but in 115 degree heat electricity and air conditioning are the only things that calm the soul.  In Baghdad those seem to be in short supply.
