It’s come to this. Even the President’s tailor is chiming in on the mystery bulge that appeared between W’s shoulder blades during the first debate.
According to the Seattle Times:
Georges de Paris, who made the suit worn by Bush, said the bulge was nothing more than a pucker along the jacket’s back seam, accentuated when the president crossed his arms and leaned forward.
A pucker? Let’s at least call it a smirk…
Life has become a Saturday Night Live skit.
One could justifiably ask why a tailor (with four decades of presidential suit making under his sash) would admit to what seems like a pretty obvious design flaw in his latest creation. One could also do a quick psychological analysis on a person who employs the unusual body language of crossing arms while leaning forward. But more interesting is that W goes around the country bashing the French while wearing a suit made by a guy named Paris. I always expected this President to have his suits made by Wrangler.
A Frenchy making his suits … What’s next, accessory work by Carson Kressley?
I don’t think W was cheating. But the seam pucker theory leaves me wanting. Until I hear something that convinces me otherwise, I’m sticking with my own theory.
