Cher's Underwear Problem

Music icon and fashion horror story, Cher, has a problem with underwear.  Not hers, of course (nor the fact that she often mistakes hers as outerwear).  With Mitt Romney's.  Because his underthings are ultra weird and scary -- pssst!  Romney thinks his underwear is magic!!

Behold, her twittery wisdom:

"I Feel if he [Obama] doesn't get all his DUCKS IN A ROW we'll b forced 2 listen 2Uncaring Richy Rich!  The whitest man in MAGIC UNDERWEAR in the WH!"

Maybe it's just me, but I don't think Cher is the right one to be pointing fingers here.  I mean, if anyone's underwear looks like it is about to sprout wings and start shouting, "Expelliarmus!" it's Cher's.  Not to mention the other glaring ironies - that she not only happens to be white, but according to Forbes Magazine, she is richer than the old GOP devil himself, by upwards of $55 million.

But, she cares, so I guess that's the difference.  (Celebrities: they may not know what they are talking about, but they "care.")

Well, I hate to disappoint you, Cher, but Mitt Romney's underwear isn't magic.  And if you were to suggest such a thing to his face, I think he might manage to unzip his business-like demeanor long enough to give you a hearty guffaw.  He might even snort a little.  I mean, for heaven's sake, magic underwear?  Really?

Yes, many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (myself included) wear what are called "garments" underneath their regular clothing.  It's simply a reminder of promises they have made to God in temples.

But I realize that such a boring and reasonable explanation would defeat the purpose of making Romney look like a backwards religious nutcase, and I hate to spoil your party, so I'll let you get back to your "tolerant" and "understanding" ways.

Right after I make fun of this outfit.  Honestly, Cher, what were you thinking?

Oh, this so made my night. Really, what WAS she thinking? Yes, so she "cares," but it's apparent she doesn't think.

So sorry to call off Sunday! Turned out it was a good thing. Doug spent the afternoon/evening on the couch with stomach pains. Weird. Must have been my cooking. Looking forward to August!
