Celebrate the Exit of Tom Daschle with a Smattering of Smiles….

~~By InsightAnalytical-GRL

After a week of screwed up email by Comcast’s new “SmartZone” setup, I’ve caught up with a few things from the crew at IA…but first:

TOM DASCHLE, whom Obama was “standing by” has withdrawn!   Well, I’m so glad my post from way back was on track with Daschle, his wife and his “Mansion-gate”…See The Scanner-Politics 11/20/08 (CHANGE?? Daschle at HHS, His Wife and Lobbying; Organic Consumers Org. So Ticked at the Thought of Vilsack at Agriculture That Their Petition is Already Going Strong; Froma Harrop on “Palin’s Next Career Move” Will Raise Your Blood Pressure) (Updated 1X) for some of the stuff I dug up from S. Dakota back then…


From our intrepid Chicago Correspondent Leslie… here’s this little tidbit from the Chicago Sun-Times in case you missed it…says Leslie: “Because we’re SO post-racial…”

Michelle Obama under fire for not wearing black designer

January 26, 2009

The usually celebrated sartorial splendor of First Lady Michelle Obama is coming under fire by a former runway model upset that Obama didn’t wear an inaugural design by a black fashion designer.

Amnau Eele, co-founder of the Black Artists Association, told fashion industry publication Women’s Wear Daily she plans to “file a formal appeal” with Michelle Obama’s office about the lack of a black designer.

“It’s fine and good if you want to be all ‘Kumbaya’ and ‘We are the World’ by representing all different countries,” Eele is quoted as saying at wwd.com, the magazine’s Web site. “But if you are going to have Isabel Toledo do the inauguration dress, and Jason Wu do the evening gown, why not have Kevan Hall, B Michael, Stephen Burrows or any of the other black designers do something, too?”


Boo hoo!  But, hey, Michelle has brought her Chicago chef to the White House, what more do you want???  An appeal?? HA!!!!

  1. Seriously…..is EVERYTHING going to revolve around “black” now? And who gives a rat’s ass about what michevil wore?

  2. I don’t care what Michelle wears. I just think it is amusing. She invites this kind of attack – she is so for black people, etc. – not.

    Back in the pre-post-racial days, about 35 years ago, I was a model, working with a racially mixed group of fashion models. I was the white model for a TV segment on show with a black commentator, featuring the outfits of a black woman designer.

    Not sure what to make of all that; just seems ironic to me.

  3. Probably no self respecting black designer wanted the “honor” of dressing the First Lady of Your Grandmother’s Sofa, especially after that Black Widow Spider number!

  4. IA,

    As much as I appreciate and enjoy your posts, it will be good to hear from Kenosha Marge again. Her tales always have a twist that none other can duplicate. Her humor and dry wit are good for what ails you.

    I remember your past articles on Tom Daschle. Did you have your crystal ball beside you when you wrote them? Obama is very saddened that Mr. Daschle withdrew his nomination. I’ll Bet Tom still has the imprint of Obama’s foot on the seat of his pants.

    Whooeee it sure is getting crowded under this bus.

    • Well, as you know, we’ve all been busy, so I’ve just been holding the fort!
      KM’s post is ready to go at 12:01 am MT!!

  5. Fran…..reminds me of when they finally put some “white” faces on Soul Train…..you have to wonder what the hell is wrong with America!

  6. Isn’t that “SmartZone” a farce?? It takes nearly twice as long to retrieve my mail now on their “bazillion times faster” servers…………

    I heard TehOne talking about the regret he had when Daschle withdrew his name.

    NEVER a mention about Nancy Killefer. NOT ONE WORD in the report I heard this evening.

    And then when asked about the position of Sec of Treasury, being in question…. well, you take a listen.


    • Well, signing in each time is a security measure, I guess. My former friend had to do it for some reason a long time ago, while I was still able to sign in to my main address then navigate to other boxes without signing in and out.

      So, now, it’s back to what it was when I had dial-up and only 2 boxes….3 times the pain!!!

      And Mail.com is either busy or just has decided to mess up my password…so that option isn’t working well as a back-up at the moment, just in case I need it again!

    a wee bit late, but a wish for happiness nonetheless

  8. Leslie…that video…he looks like a little schoolmarm…half expecting to see Dana Carvey jump out!

    As for the NEW post of Chief of Performance Officer….are they talking about sex in the Lincoln Bedroom when Ludacris hits town again??

  9. I just finished reading Patterns at Tom in Paine and hope you had a chance to read it as well.


  10. “As for the NEW post of Chief of Performance Officer….are they talking about sex in the Lincoln Bedroom when Ludacris hits town again??”

    Bwahahaha !
