The Devils Wears Prada... and Is a Left-Wing Bully

Just remember this the next time some championship-winning athlete snubs a Democratic President by skipping the requisite White House visit because the athlete thinks the President is a Socialist...
Michelle Obama is a clear favourite in the fashion industry. Her outfits sell out within minutes, designers clamor to dress her, and she counts Vogue's Anna Wintour and J. Crew's Jenna Lyons as supporters. While fashion publicists routinely send out handfuls of press releases as soon the 48-year-old is spotted in their client's brand, 63-year-old Ann Romney's outfit choices routinely go unclaimed; so much so that many have started asking why. Some have posed the theory that Vogue's resident Democrat, Ms Wintour, is silently threatening designers' standing in her magazine should they endeavor to dress Republican presidential candidate's wife.
The evidence is anecdotal, and there's no way one could prove that Wintour is behind the apparently near-universal disinterest designers have in the fact that Ann Romney is wearing their clothes. And maybe that's a market decision by the fashion designers... we'll hopefully find out, because they may get a chance to ignore the new First Lady. Think they'll do that?
