Here's to Frances Cleveland!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frances_Folsom_Cleveland_Preston

She married Grover Cleveland in the White House, becoming First Lady at 21.

"Grover Cleveland, at age 27, met his future wife shortly after she was born. He took an avuncular interest in the child, buying her a baby carriage and otherwise doting on her as she grew up. When her father died in a buggy accident in 1875 without having written a will, the court appointed Cleveland administrator of his estate. This brought Cleveland into still more contact with Frances, then age 11."

She initially was named Frank, but later feminized her name to Frances. She was a cousin of the chief of the Choctaws. John Philip Sousa played at their wedding.

"Upon leaving the White House at the end of her husband's first term, Frances is reported to have told the staff to take care of the building since the Clevelands would be returning in four years. She proved correct."

She was a graduate of Madame Brecker's French Kindergarten in Buffalo, and Miss Bissell's School for Young Ladies.

Before his marriage, Grover Cleveland's official hostess was his sister Rose, a bluestocking lesbian.

Oh, I like the pic of the current FLOTUS with the yam. Very agrarian.

The one with Mrs. Carla Bruni-Szarkozy!

Il Malocchio! Tpoowh! Tpoowh!

Though in an un-cropped frame Sarah Brown stands next to Carla and may have been the target.

I greatly approve, Mrs. P. But it does make me wish that I had been hewn and polished sooner.

After a particularly long and grueling day, I dream of serving in the Kennedy administration. Imagine reflecting on Jackie.

Even Marilyn would have been a class act compared to what I've got to work with.

She has no sense of style. She insists on wearing wide belts, which because she has no waste automatically ride up under her boobs like an empire waste.

She wears the wrong style clothing to de-emhasize her large posterior and belly. I've read that she exercises regularly and we all know the media is infatuated with her arms for some reason.

Of late she has taken to wearing her hair in a French twist or something similar, which on her is not attractive at all.

With all the money and stylists in the world available to her, one would think she could look more presentable.

One picture she's trying to look like a teenager or her daughter, the next she's dressed like an old lady.

And don't even get me started on Barack's old woman jeans.

Why people (okay, it's just liberals, really) hold her out as a style icon is a mystery to me. She just has terrible, terrible taste and is built like an Amazon.
