Dressing Down for the Presidency

Joe Queenan: "I was watching the Georgetown-Notre Dame basketball game Monday night and was struck by how dapper the coaches looked. And not just the coaches, but the assistant coaches. And the assistant-assistant coaches. Fancy shirts. Classy ties. Elegant suits..."

"Then I switched over to Rick Santorum giving a speech somewhere, and he was sporting the usual undone dress shirt, with no tie, with the generic blue-jeans thing going on. Which is basically the same choreographed man-of-the-people look as Mitt Romney, only with more of a J.C. Penney's twist. The Casual Friday Look. The Would-Be Maverick Look. The Hapless on the Hustings Look. The look that says: I went all the way to K Street and all I got was this lousy shirt."

"You're running for the most important office in the entire world, and here you are dressing like somebody working the night shift at Wal-Mart."
