Today’s news about Tom Daschle withdrawing as cabinet nominee is not half as embarrassing as his Lafont Providence red eyeglasses ($468). One part Sally Jesse Raphael, one part “I’ve still got it” freak-out, these frames on a 61-year-old senate majority leader-cum-lobbyist are just too loud, in every sense. It’s an unfortunate day when an illiterate Barbie makes smarter decisions than you do, albeit strictly in the eyewear department. (Hey, there’s a first time for everything.)

Okay, so I’m revealing a lot about myself with this post. First. I watch Gossip Girl, and I’m not exactly the demographic. Second, I am (was?) the demographic for Heathers, the “mean girls” genre prototype that paved the way for subsequent high school high-fashion flicks. (It is notable that Mean Girls director Mark Waters is brother of Heathers screenwriter Daniel Waters.) Heathers remains one of my all-time faves. Which is why I couldn’t help but be a little miffed by Blair’s blatant rip off last week of Heather #1′s personal style from her signature red accessories to the plaid jacket right down to the white tights from 20 years ago. How very.
