MY SUNUNU-SENSE IS TINGLING  12:30 pm September 6, 2012

John Sununu Knows The Real Story Behind Michelle Obama’s Dress

by Jesse Taylor

this dress cost thiiiiis much

Known government-teat succubus Michelle Obama showed up to the first night of the DNC in a shiny frock, much like the shiny frocks worn by Target addicted upwardly-mobile assholes who park their Camrys like they’re BMWs at your local Pier 1. (Joking, who goes to Pier 1?)

Allegedly, this dress cost around $400 or so. John Sununu, known fashionisto, believes that Michelle Obama is lying.

Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu questioned reports that the Tracey Reese dress Michelle Obama wore for her convention address Tuesday night cost $350 on a conference call with reporters Wednesday.┬áSununu accused the Obama campaign of peddling several lies, including the cost of the dress: “somehow I don’t think that’s the truth either.”

Here are a bunch of Tracey Reese dresses at Nordstrom. The most expensive one on the list is $595. Everything else is $350-$450. I am presuming that John Sununu buys his light summer dresses straight from the designer herself, probably over mimosas and hyperbolic screaming at nearby objects that look like Chris Matthews, so maybe he pays more?

Does Sunununu have it in a size 42?

ThankYouJeebus September 6, 2012 at 12:45 pm

All that extra yardage does add to the cost.

ManchuCandidate September 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm

John thinks its a skin tight dress. On anyone else, it's a mumu.

StarsUponThars September 6, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Sununu muu-muu.

Terry September 6, 2012 at 12:32 pm

You know things are going badly for the Republicans when John Sununu is doing fashion commentary.

FakaktaSouth September 6, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Yeah, typical. When you hate someone for no reason, and have no real reason to say anything hateful, attack their clothes. He's a catty bitch.

IonaTrailer September 6, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Plus she has much better arms than he does.

fat fuck.

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 12:49 pm

He can't even attack the clothes themselves, so he has to put words in the campaign's mouth so he can claim they're lies (the campaign didn't put a price on the dress, but the NYT's reporting is easily confirmed)

It's all a verbose and roundabout way of saying "she's a ni-CLANG"

HempDogbane September 6, 2012 at 2:32 pm

He was trying to say he really like that dress, but it just came out wrong.

chicken_thief September 6, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Where's the expertise of the Wasilla contingent when you need it? Get Greta and the Grizz on this, stat.

Biel_ze_Bubba September 6, 2012 at 2:30 pm

And they can't even get that right.

duckellis September 6, 2012 at 4:04 pm

He's such a BITCH!

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Fashion, Sunoco. Learn it.

SayItWithWookies September 6, 2012 at 12:33 pm

And here I'd figured Sununu to be a Vera Wang girl.

Beowoof September 6, 2012 at 12:49 pm

If he is talking fashion I am sure he loves him some Wang.

Nowisallthereis September 6, 2012 at 1:50 pm

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 2:07 pm

He can't see his, and besides, she's Asian-American and not in keeping with his self-image as a bigot.

ChernobylSoup September 6, 2012 at 12:34 pm

This is how campaigns end.

Not with a bang but a whimper.

As for me, I should have been a pair of ragged claws.

Nice Poetry Slam.

Nostrildamus September 6, 2012 at 1:28 pm

At first I thought "but Hils is in East Timor, or somewhere" and then I thought – "oh, right."

FlownOver September 6, 2012 at 1:16 pm

There once was a man named Sununu…

Your turn.

Mittens Howell, III September 6, 2012 at 1:31 pm

There once was a man named Sununu
who flounced in his Tracey Reese tutu
he barfed in a cup
when Michelle showed him up
then he ate it like warm ramen noodles

Geminisunmars September 6, 2012 at 2:18 pm

There once was a man named Sununu
Whose utterance was really a loo-loo
When a Republican cries
You can bet it's all lies
Because that is all they can do-do

JerkCade September 6, 2012 at 2:40 pm

There once was a man name Sununu
Who knew none of the things a guru knew.
Spouting daffy flim flam? Sure!
All the folks in New Hampshire
Knew Sununu's reviews lacked a clue (True!).

Nibbler of Niblonia September 6, 2012 at 3:25 pm

There once was a gov from New Hampshire
Filled with self loathing, for damn sure
He'd dabble in butt play
And insult the first lay-day
His head stuck in his own anal fissure

mrblifil September 6, 2012 at 5:11 pm

There once was a man named Sununu
whose front lobes degraded to poo poo
his pronouncements were heinous!
Fuck him in the anus,
til my dick from his throat protrudes through-through.

Baconzgood September 6, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Who'da thunk that Sununu was a Project Runway fan.

rickmaci September 6, 2012 at 12:42 pm

You seen that guy's clothes? Fucker needs to watch reruns of Queer Eye.

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Well, he is a fierce tranny.

FakaktaSouth September 6, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I just think he had taken some of Rebecca's acid and the dress was all tripping him out, so it muuuuust have been like a millllllion dollars man…

IonaTrailer September 6, 2012 at 12:35 pm

I think it will *retail* for under $400 – but that may not be what it cost which I'm betting was NOTHING – she got it fo' free from Tracy Reese. Welfare queen.

actor212 September 6, 2012 at 12:42 pm

She's not allowed.

Nancy Reagan tried that and got in muy trouble, so ever since, the First Family has had to pay for clothing.

FlownOver September 6, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Unlike, say…

ALIVE! September 6, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Ahem. The way it goes, is, "You know who ELSE tried to get free clothes through her political connections?"

kittensdontlie September 6, 2012 at 1:15 pm

It's obvious that she skimped on her hairdo to buy that dress. That wayward curl she had flying off to the side, was distracting but gave her that down-to-earthiness that's adorable.

CrankyLttlCamperette September 6, 2012 at 1:18 pm

I just wanted to reach through my TV and fix that for her…

Chet Kincaid_ September 6, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Is this more of that Gabby Douglas hair bitchery, like during the Olympics?! I thought the First Lady looked fine, but my wife had to get catty about a lock of hair I didn't even notice.

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Yeah, I didn't know about it until today. Guess I was too rapt by her barn burning speech.

sewollef September 6, 2012 at 1:40 pm

"That wayward curl she had flying off to the side, was distracting but gave her that down-to-earthiness that's adorable."

…..down-to-earthiness that's fuckable. Isn't that what you meant to say?

chicken_thief September 6, 2012 at 2:20 pm

That would be the lock that tickles my tummy as her head bobs. But to your question – ya. Immanently.

Geminisunmars September 6, 2012 at 2:23 pm

I thought it was intentionally symbolic, like Barry brushing off his shoulder.

ManchuCandidate September 6, 2012 at 12:35 pm

He has the exact same one in his closet. Snusnu's upset because he wanted to wear that to the DC correspondent's dinner and now thanks to Mish he can't.

Snu-snu is one ugly and fat mean girl.

VaWyo September 6, 2012 at 12:45 pm

He should still wear it and then US or People will put it on their "who wore it best" page. This would be the first time the split was 100% to 0%.

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I think you mean "Bitch Stole My Look".

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 12:41 pm

I question the wisdom of this. Won't the chairs just be trashed in the Post Election riots?

Oblios_Cap September 6, 2012 at 12:46 pm

Oh, the chair-manity! It would be a chairpocalypse of sorts.

WestSayid September 6, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Chairs are people too, my friends.

HistoriCat September 6, 2012 at 1:59 pm

CWUY – chair-wielding urban youth.

Biff September 6, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Because if it's the other guys, the audience would all ride their own chairs, right?

BaldarTFlagass September 6, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Make sure you reserve one of those empty chairs for Clint!

lumpenprole September 6, 2012 at 1:36 pm

He's going to need an empty stadium to yell at after the electorate disappoints him.

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

He should know, he probly has a closet full of them.

NorthStarSpanx September 6, 2012 at 1:17 pm

I always felt he and J Edgar had a lot more in common than just body type.

weejee September 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Mmmm, if Sununu knows the price points on ladies fashion does that make Lindsey Graham's ham & biscuit lovin' heart go all atwitter?

Graham Cracker September 6, 2012 at 12:49 pm

You bet it does! And you know that they both spend all their time in the closet.

Weenus299 September 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

What are the Hogettes wearing this fall?

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I wonder if the word "lie" has been a bit overused as of late.

BaldarTFlagass September 6, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Depends on who you're talking about.

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 12:49 pm

You are right. Then, I am talking about the ones that lie so much in this cycle calling the ones that don't lie so much…liars.

SorosBot September 6, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Well it is appropriate to pretty much every single thing Paul Ryan says.

Dr_Zoidberg September 6, 2012 at 12:59 pm

You lie!

jaytingle September 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

This is from a prominent Romney campaign representative. And Romney is in a statistical dead heat with Obama. I am going back to cuteoverload.com.

Thx, Sobot. Made me feel much better … of course, so has the convention.

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 2:29 pm

The convention has been so chock-full of "finally someone said that on TV", it fills my heart.

miss_grundy September 6, 2012 at 6:55 pm

I was watching PBS and they mentioned that the Mittster will not be watching the Prez's speech tonight. What a douchebag!

ChessieNefercat September 7, 2012 at 12:07 am

And a moron.

gullywompr September 6, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Sarah Palin.

Your move.

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I can see her telling Ryan to "wear glasses, it will make you look smarter".

widestanceromance September 6, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Does little to help anyone sound–or be–smarter, though.

Beowoof September 6, 2012 at 12:51 pm

She is probably still screaming at Todd for losing his reality show competition to a girl.

hagajim September 6, 2012 at 12:59 pm

She wouldn't know, being as the GOP bought all of her clothes.

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 1:03 pm

So much nicer hearing about Sarah Palin than from her, isn't it?

NorthStarSpanx September 6, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Although the Ryan marathon lie unwittingly made her a admirable runner. I'd rather people stop referencing her unless it's a measuring stick to ineptness or colossal political mistakes.

BaldarTFlagass September 6, 2012 at 12:39 pm

I guess Sununu reckons Michelle should make her own clothes at home, between her sandwich-making and husband-pleasuring and floor-mopping chores.

Goonemeritus September 6, 2012 at 12:46 pm

He would be fine with any of those as long as she isn’t crowding up the Woolworth’s lunch counter.

VaWyo September 6, 2012 at 12:47 pm

As long as she doesn't procreate. He doesn't want anymore uppity blah people.

Self-Uploader September 6, 2012 at 3:35 pm

The thing is I bet she could make her own clothes if she had to, and they would be FABULOUS because she can do anything.

docterry6973 September 6, 2012 at 5:33 pm

I with you. $10 says FLOTUS could handle a Butterick pattern if the play came up. Her mom taught her that, I bet.

SorosBot September 6, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Wait, what? Does this even make sense as an attack? I don't get it.

Oblios_Cap September 6, 2012 at 12:44 pm

No.

Beowoof September 6, 2012 at 12:53 pm

For quite awhile I have had trouble distinguishing what republicans actually say from Onion headlines. Thus, I would conclude it hasn't made sense for a long time now.

Tundra Grifter September 6, 2012 at 12:54 pm

You have to put it into context – The Infinite Conservative Payback Loop.

Richard Nixon was almost impeached. So the GNoP had to go after Bill Clinton and try to get him impeached.

George Bush was inarticulate. So the Republicans go after Mr. Obama and his use of the Teleprompter.

Nancy Reagan was accused of accepting designer clothes and not reporting them on her financial disclosure forms. So the "conversatives" go after Michelle Obama's dresses.

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 1:02 pm

I see what you mean, but that might make a little too much logical sense (in a crazy sort of way).

I think it might just be that they are deranged rabid bats, flittering dementedly around the room and bouncing off the window glass of sanity.

IonaTrailer September 6, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Nice!

Chichikovovich September 6, 2012 at 1:19 pm

I think it's meant to be part of a "Michele and Barack Obama were really super privileged and that whole "struggle" story was BS" rejoinder. They don't want to damage the tuna in the basement apartment – Mitt knew struggle, nobody knows the trouble he's seen, etc. narrative.

One of the Breitbart losers already has a post up on pointing out that [after Harvard Law School] they actually did pretty well. How surprising.

So they don't want people to know that the dress was bought at the same place voters shop, unlike "the eagle knawing at a nipple" top Ann R. wore when trying to look "casual".

SorosBot September 6, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Yeah, after law school. Note that there were many years before that. Unlike the Romneys, who both grew up super-rich and never knew what it's like to even be upper class, much less struggle.

Chichikovovich September 6, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Of course – that was why I stuck in the parenthetical remark about HLS.I did notice that the “Selling a bunch of the stock his dad gave him” part of the Mitt and Ann Romney life-and-death struggle in university story seemed to have been cut. For reasons of time, no doubt.—

Chet Kincaid_ September 6, 2012 at 2:06 pm

Current TV has a nice, though rather simplified, documentary about Obama's career from graduating Columbia through becoming a Senator, running for the last couple of weeks. He put up with a lot of flack and frustration serving the community here in Chicago in the '80s and '90s, when he could have been making beaucoup bucks.

miss_grundy September 6, 2012 at 7:01 pm

To me, Mr. Obama is the Jackie Robinson of presidential politics. The man has had to face down some serious racism without going down into the gutter. That is why Eastwood's performance art made me so mad. Mr. Obama has never used foul language in talking to all these assholes even though he looks like he could cuss a blue streak.

I really hopes he fires the crowd up tonight and gives the kind of killer speech that will make Republican heads explode. And then I want him to hand Mitten's head to him at the debates. FIRED UP AND READY TO GO!

Chet Kincaid_ September 6, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Criticizing Negroes for owning anything of value plays to their base.

Steverino247 September 6, 2012 at 2:12 pm

That's so sadly true.

BigSkullF*ckingDog September 6, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Ann Romney's dress was woven from the hair of aborted fetuses and dyed with the blood of kittens. That shit ain't cheap!

When Sununu is bellyaching on November 7th about how stupid we are for having reelected President Obama, I'm going to laugh until I barf.

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 12:57 pm

And when he starts bitching on January 20th about Michelle's inauguration outfits, I will laugh even harder.

Callyson September 6, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Let's see, Paul Ryan lied about Obama's record on Medicare, welfare, and at least four other issues, and was so blatant that even FOX News' website called him out and had the evidence to do so…

…so, the GOP response is to accuse our side of lying about the cost of a dress, with zero information…

This has been one dumb ass campaign from one dumb ass party: can't wait to see what the Reeps come up with next…

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Bush would have upped the Terror level thingy by now.

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Sununununu and Miss Lindsay should buy together, see if they can get a bulk discount.

Bulk in more ways than one.

Lies? The Romney campaign has lied about everything from Romney's employment history with Bain to Ryan's marathon time. Meanwhile, the fact-checkers are giving Bill Clinton a 100% on his fact-filled speech last night. Tell me again who is peddling lies?

Well, not entirely. Count on the Associated Press to give fact-checking – and journalism itself – the worst name since… well, since Sununu.

Except for the AP, who gave it a grade of BJ

And I will search out a packing knife. (And then look around for someone who doesn't throw like a girl.)

Dr_Zoidberg September 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Hey, I throw like a girl because I am girl. Ok, a woman. Ok, a middle-aged woman.

Ok, racing rapidly toward 50 years old, but that's neither here nor there.

Arborista September 6, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Hey- were you adopted? Maybe we were separated at birth!

The awesomeness of Dr. Zoidberg transcends antiquated notions of gender!!

Also, Otto the pilot is fantastic!

Ok, we're a motley crew with a wide range of office supplies – let's go!

MoeDeLawn September 6, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Herb Kornfeld approves.

Oblios_Cap September 6, 2012 at 12:48 pm

At $450, Ann could have bought less than half a shirt.

Those people in that White House are such peasants.

BaldarTFlagass September 6, 2012 at 12:48 pm

I won't have an opinion about this until I hear what Sarah Palin has to say about it.

SorosBot September 6, 2012 at 12:49 pm

She would have had the RNC buy that dress instead of paying for it herself.

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Refreshing that someone has apparently shoved an old gym sock into that gaping, caterwauling maw, isn't it?

She must be going nuts at all the women invited to speak and none of them are her and no one cares. Wait until Gabby leads the Pledge of Allegiance tonight.

Chet Kincaid_ September 6, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Sarah Palin was tranqued and tagged in order to get her into all that high-fashion stuff in 2008. As soon as the tranq wore off, it was back to her usual "Governors Of Wal-Mart" attire.

ChessieNefercat September 7, 2012 at 12:17 am

Okay, "Governors of Walmart" attire is good!

It certainly explains the bizarre superman-shirt-low-rise-capris-bondage-platform-shoes a few weeks ago at a fundraising event.

rickmaci September 6, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Really? That's it?? Michelle Obama's dress is their best shot for the day after Bill Clinton shredded their lying asses like a John Deere mowing down the grass???

Bwhahahahahhahahahhahah.

BaldarTFlagass September 6, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Yeow, the Big Dog sure did lift his leg and piss all over them cocksuckers last night. MWAHAHAHA!

ChessieNefercat September 7, 2012 at 12:18 am

I would like to see *that* as a Huffpo headline.

miss_grundy September 6, 2012 at 7:09 pm

A queer eye has the fat guy.

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 12:51 pm

No, no, John. You're mistaken. You're thinking of the higher cost of the dresses you buy in the Ladies Plus section.

dcjdjay September 6, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Me thinks the Sununu is jealous that his man boobs don't look quite as good in a dress as the FLOTUS' lady ones.

Arborista September 6, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Well, cut him some slack- she sure LOOKED like a million bucks…

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Aw, that's sweet!

Hammiepants September 6, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Seriously, Fat Boy, that's all you got? Some Project-Runway level bitchery? Better look into how much that mani cost while you're at it there, Sherlock. AMERICA NEEDS TO KNOW!

FlownOver September 6, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Yup, no doubt. If I were Rongney this is they guy I'd want for a surrogate and this is what I'd want him talking about. So engaging and persuasive.

MissTaken September 6, 2012 at 12:55 pm

I assume Sununununununu spoke about Ann's $1500+ Oscar de la Renta dress and $500+ Stuart Weitzman shoes, too, right?!

fuflans September 6, 2012 at 1:07 pm

which actually looked EXACTLY like the $150 '1947 dress' from j peterman that i have in two colors.

MissTaken September 6, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Yes! Frankly, de la Renta has been phoning it in for years. He dressed Laura Bush in all her unsexy librarian suits, yuck. The only dress of his that I can remember looking cute in the last 15 years was the pink dress that Alexsandr gave Carrie on Sex and the City. Otherwise, for all that moolah, meh.

fuflans September 6, 2012 at 1:25 pm

i have to say, sometimes i'm very glad the first lady doesn't look like a first lady.

Tastes like tacos?

Welcome to Sununu's Tailor Shop. Whether you want jackets, we got jackets. You want trousers, we got trousers. This is a good time, believe me. We’re having a big sale. Tremendous. Positively the lowest prices. Maybe you need a nice double-knit. Incidental, I’m stuck with three pieces corduroy.

James Michael Curley September 6, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Sununu in corduroy would sound like logging in the Northwest.

Long before there was the sex act, there was the outfit.A double-knit suit in plaid and/or ice cream colors was a Cleveland.Adding a white belt and white slip-on shoes made it a FULL Cleveland.

magic_titty September 6, 2012 at 12:58 pm

No John, when attractive people wear clothes, it just looks expensive.

BaldarTFlagass September 6, 2012 at 12:59 pm

I like it better when attractive people don't wear clothes. In the proper venue, of course.

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 1:02 pm

At my age, I will take whatever venue I can get.

OneYieldRegular September 6, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Let's ask Ann "$1,000 fish-bird t-shirt" Romney what she thinks about this.

Jus_Wonderin September 6, 2012 at 1:02 pm

"It's attacking my titty!!!!"

chicken_thief September 6, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Well, Ann did raise five fine white sons so she deserves every thing she gets. That negroidal doctoral holder with two blah girls however, not so much.

RevNimshi September 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm

He's just mad because there are no Nordstroms in New Hampshire.

fawkedifiknow September 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Wasn't it his criticism of Barbara Bush's clothes that got his fat ass fired by that one-term loser president, Geo. H. W. Bush?

What's next,? We'll hear from that Big Hair Girl (Sarah Palin) about Michelle's taste in clothes?

Jukesgrrl September 6, 2012 at 3:48 pm

No, it was about his profligate spending of government cash on personal things. Daddy Bush got testy when 40 newspapers wrote EDITORIALS about Snooznu's use of government planes and limos for personal trips.

The most outrageous described accurately by Wiki: He "traveled to a rare stamp auction at Christie's auction house in New York City from Washington in a government limousine, spending $5,000 on rare stamps. Sununu then sent the car and driver back to Washington unoccupied while he returned on a corporate jet."

miss_grundy September 6, 2012 at 7:14 pm

hagajim September 6, 2012 at 1:01 pm

Sununu? Isn't that those fancy tobacco pouches you chaw on?

Chet Kincaid_ September 6, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Them Yurpeen tobacco teabags? "Snooz," I think they call 'em.

James Michael Curley September 6, 2012 at 1:01 pm

All I can say,

Sununu in a muumuu.

IonaTrailer September 6, 2012 at 1:04 pm

OT from the lovely Mrs O – According to this person, Romney has told 533 lies in 30 weeks. Looks like he's backed them up with references. I can't wait to have this discussion with my Republican relatives. I got some studyin' to do. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/slacktivist/2012/08/

sullivanst September 6, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Looks like that was written before the two most recent installments from Steve Benen

So, make that 600 lies in 32 weeks. Actually I think it's 33 – Benen took a week off somewhere in there.

And, they're not 600 different lies. Romney has favorite lies he tells over and over and over and over again, no matter how often they're debunked by how many fact checkers, viz. "gutting welfare reform" (thanks, Bill Clinton, for taking him to the woodshed over that one last night).

MinAgain September 6, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Sununu needs a fashion primer from Tom and Lorenzo.

UnholyMoses September 6, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Contact a doctor immediately if your Sununu Sense tingles for more than four hours.

rickmaci September 6, 2012 at 1:07 pm

Takes real brass for a guy that looks like John Shamumu to criticize a woman that looks like Michelle Obama. (Roll eyes, pause.)

mustangsavvy September 6, 2012 at 1:07 pm

What Sununu really meant to say:

"GIRL. Snaps UP! That is a fabulous dress, diva!! Oooohhhhh I bet you paid BIG money. Go on, girl, flaunt what the good Lord gave you! Oh bitch, I hate you for having fabulous arms! Kisses darling, let's have lunch soon, yes?"

Boojum September 6, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I think John should be much more concerned about the accuracy of Hellfire missiles fired from a Predator drone than he is about the cost of that dress. Particularly give what a LARGE target he makes.

mustangsavvy September 6, 2012 at 1:10 pm

IRONY – Sununu wants us to leave rich Republicans alone to buy their 8th holiday home complete with car elevators and a private beach because…..job creators, Ayn Rand, Atlas fucking Shrugged or farted or whateever. But he's gonna go right ahead and rip into FLOTUS for buying a *GASP* expensive dress.

Another example of It's Ok if You're A Republican.

Fuck off, Sununu, ya dickhead.

Lionel[redacted]Esq September 6, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Thank the gods we have John Sununu to guide us to the truth in this campaign by making shit up.

rickmaci September 6, 2012 at 1:13 pm

If I was the guy married to Michelle Obama, I would get my ass to New Hampshire, find that fat prick and bounce a basketball off his head so hard you would be able to read the word Spaulding spelled backwards on his forehead.

ingloriousbytch September 6, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Yeah, that's kind of the problem.

widestanceromance September 6, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Sununu is so not-not.

Antispandex September 6, 2012 at 1:17 pm

I know that I should know this, but who is John Sununu? I was thinking maybe he was on that Queer Eye show, or maybe Say Yes To The Dress? I have no idea what a dress costs. Should I even be able to vote? Now this election just got REALLY hard.

nicnack74 September 6, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Dayum Michell looks good. I wanna be like her when I grow up.

Blunderthing September 6, 2012 at 1:18 pm

John Sununu looked up from sucking a dick to wipe the semen from his 600 dollar dress and then went back to sucking a dick. Where are the tax returns?

IncenseDebate September 6, 2012 at 1:18 pm

America wants to see the long-form receipt, notarized, to prove that this Negress didn't just steal that dress or buy it with her food stamps before driving away in her limousine.

fuflans September 6, 2012 at 1:22 pm

see, here's the thing john, dems actually don't NEED to lie. in spite of the fact that the economy sucks, job growth is low and america is tired and sad, dems are willing to have a debate on real things – actual history, specific policy choices, etc.

you won't – b/c you know all your side has is a blasted record, policy choices america won't support and a loud ugly group that is steering you off a cliff.

so yeah, go ahead and ponder about the cost of michelle's fucking dress.

no matter what happens in this election, you'reon the wrong side of history.

oh. and fuck you for ensuring that we don't have a policy debate that we actually need. asshole.

Chet Kincaid_ September 6, 2012 at 1:56 pm

On that last point, I think Bamz and Biden will handle their business during the debates.

Arborista September 6, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Great way to take voters' minds off of the whole DRESSage thing they want us to forget…

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 1:52 pm

And the $150,000 trailer trash fashion-palooza.

miss_grundy September 6, 2012 at 7:20 pm

By the way, has anyone heard from Rafalca lately???

La_Cieca September 6, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Sununu added, "I mean, she looks like a disco pumpkin! She's got a Holly Hobby halter top and avocado dinner napkins tucked in her sides! The next thing you know, it's big button earrings and she's on The Facts of Life!"

proudgrampa September 6, 2012 at 1:26 pm

That woman would look gorgeous with a potato sack on those shoulders.

Some people (the President) have all the luck in the world.

Jimmyone September 6, 2012 at 1:39 pm

yeah, I was just thinking the same thing…When Bill was talking about nominating the Prez he said some thing about "I want the person who married this woman (Michelle) as my president" or something like that.

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 2:07 pm

I thought it was cute how Michelle blushed when he said that (Bill, you old dog, you!).

I also thought that Barack probably arranged to increase Michelle's SS protection.

Steverino247 September 6, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Luck? No, it was skill!

chicken_thief September 6, 2012 at 2:36 pm

*sighs* Obummerz owes his entire life to affirmative action. Because blah. Duh.

no_gravity September 6, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Sunono is just pissed because Michelle's speech was written at a 12th grade level an Queen Ann's at a 5th grade level.

Jukesgrrl September 6, 2012 at 3:56 pm

So Ann didn't sound as if she was talking down to us for no reason? I love PROOF.

DahBoner September 6, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Wait! I thought Sununu was busy flying around on the starship Enterprise.

What's he doing back on Earth so soon????

NellCote71 September 6, 2012 at 1:29 pm

The GOP lecturing us on wardrobe costs? I am looking at you Sarah Palin. And at you Ann Romney. And at you Cindy McCain. This is like Newt Gringrich braying about the sanctity of marriage.

mavenmaven September 6, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Because only Palin is allowed to wear fancy dresses.

miss_grundy September 6, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Because she's white, sheeple…….

IncenseDebate September 6, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Hey Sununu! Dirty Hairy has an empty chair for you to sit and shut the fuck up in!

miss_grundy September 6, 2012 at 7:22 pm

I don't think the chair could take his weight…..

Monsieur_Grumpe September 6, 2012 at 1:39 pm

zippy_w_pinhead September 6, 2012 at 1:41 pm

I thought we weren't supposed to be jealous of success? Wouldn't a pricey dress be something to celebrate, not criticize, in their eyes?

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Only if Michelle Obama happened to be Ann Romney, silly.

Toomush_Infer September 6, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Sununu was brought in to be the "double down" liar for the Romney campaign….others may falter when confronted with facts, but John can be counted on to further obfuscate the clear farcity of lie-based idiocrasms with extended and fresh venomy lies, each further from the truth….at this point, he's probably itching to test for Bill's semen on Michelle's dress…watch for it…

Chet Kincaid_ September 6, 2012 at 1:54 pm

I'm so glad that the Republicans have Sununu on their side.

Pat_Pending September 6, 2012 at 2:23 pm

They really got nothing. This is starting to remind me of that Allstate commercial with the guy who's jealous of his neighbor's sport vehicles, finally just saying, "Well, his dog's… stupid…"

And then the guy next to him sez, "Poodles are one of the most intelligent dog breeds."

ChessieNefercat September 6, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Say, John, why don't you wander on over to Soledad O'Brien's show to discuss this matter? Be sure to wear your nicest dress and I'm sure that this time, Soledad will give you all the respect you deserve.**

**Just like she did last time.

Eve8Apples September 6, 2012 at 2:35 pm

I hope Sununu is helping prep Rmoney for the debates.

John: "So when the President summarizes the disastrous economic shitstorm he inherited from the last GOP administration, I want you to pull out your September issue of Vogue and go all Anna Wintour on his ass. That will win you the female vote."

docterry6973 September 6, 2012 at 2:37 pm

$350? For $350 I'd buy it. Not for myself you understand, because I definitely do not wear feminine attire, never ever, no matter what you might have heard to the contrary.

Zombie_Reagan September 6, 2012 at 2:42 pm

I'll see you a $400 dress and raise you Sarah Palin's $150,000 RNC-funded shopping spree.

Ms_Anthrope September 6, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Sununu shops at the Big Fat Stupid store. Those plus sizes always cost more.

JustPixelz September 6, 2012 at 2:58 pm

He seems to have forgotten his emperor (Romney) has no clothes.

EBGrey September 6, 2012 at 3:41 pm

FLOTUS. That's one fine looking woman right there.

punkneverdies September 6, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Man, look at those biceps. Whoop some ayuss, 'chelle.

arduinohacker September 6, 2012 at 3:49 pm

I suspect Sununu has those inflated dress numbers from what he sees on his wife's VISA card.

I know if I had to sleep with that popmous twit, I'd expect dresses in the high 3 digits.

anniegetyerfun September 6, 2012 at 4:03 pm

I am perfectly content talking about spousal clothing during elections, because how else would I vent about Ann's Nipple Eye Fish Bird Shirt?

But to assume that someone is lying about the price of something that can probably easily be verified via Google… I mean, what does Sununu think this is? A Paul Ryan speech?

Flat_Earther September 6, 2012 at 4:05 pm

He paid way more than than that for his Tracey Reese design.

Jukesgrrl September 6, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Just for the record, here are some fashion numbers from the 2008 Republican convention. The attractive jacket Palin wore during her hockey mom address was a Valentino priced by Saks Fifth Avenue at $2,500. The dress Cindy McCain wore on opening night was a $3,000 Oscar de la Renta number. She was also wearing a $4,500 Chanel watch with diamond jewelry that experts were unable to price accurately. Personally, I don't begrudge Cindy. I'd never spend money in that way, but she's got it and if she wants to spend it on designer stuff, it's not even her husband's cash, let along the RNC's. As for Ann Romney, she spends more on hair ribbons for Rafalca than Michelle's dress cost.

deliman4 September 6, 2012 at 4:16 pm

The call of th N.H.. woodpeckerhead Sununu, Sununu,Sununu

zippy_w_pinhead September 6, 2012 at 4:29 pm

I'm pretty sure that death by Sununu was an episode of Futurama

fishwharf September 6, 2012 at 5:06 pm

This is discussion is ridiculous.

TavariousChinaSmith September 6, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Well, the dress may have cost $350, but I know for a fact (don't ask me how) that she wears $7000 gold lamé pyjamas to bed.

alzronnie September 6, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Sununu pays more for his dresses but he forgets that they take a lot more fabric to make.

JimmyPete September 6, 2012 at 7:56 pm

Sununu is just pissed he couldn't find one to match his new pumps.

moar_plz September 6, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Not everybody has 25 large to blow on a dress like Mommy Raygun did.

ttommyunger September 7, 2012 at 8:18 am

Sununu is just jealous because he's still wearing J. Edgar Hoover's hand-me-downs.

chicken_thief September 6, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Cleopatra?

Jukesgrrl September 6, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Same here. I saw it on the reruns of the speech yesterday, but when I was watching live I never noticed it. And I noticed immediately that Rep. Allyson Schwartz from Philadelphia had a new do that made her look years younger (to distract from a facelift?), so it's not as if I don't pay attention to those things.
