Advice to the oppressed: If you need help, don't call the fashion police
Here's my other thought. Don't you find it typically pompous of the media to find fault with Dick Cheney's clothing in this context? Here you have a group of people (the main stream media) who are vehemently opposed to Mr. Cheney's foreign policy of fighting tyranny and promoting freedom. If these people's philosophy had prevailed in 1939, the incinerators at Auschwitz would be in full working order today rather than us celebrating its liberation. I find it both humorous and sickening that the people who are offended by Cheney's ostensible disrespectful attire at Auschwitz somehow fail to see the offensiveness of Saddam Hussein's mass graves and torture chambers.
Here's Robin Givhan, fashion writer at the Washington Post:
"Cheney stood out in a sea of black-coated world leaders because he was wearing an olive drab parka with a fur-trimmed hood. The vice president looked like an awkward child amid the well-dressed adults."
