Providence frames

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.)


  1. hey! i like his glasses … and i applaud him for taking a risk (although i wish he werent such a risk taker with his taxes) … they are way better than sally jesse’s!

    • I felt like his tax situation is what made the frames seem totally insincere. And you’re right; they’re way better than sjr’s!! But she is an un-ignorable (did I just make up a word?) reference point for the red-spectacle genre, no?🙂
