Elitist, philosophically European, consumed with style: Exactly. The “man bag” is a nice touch. Click the image to watch.

I refuse to watch the personification of the Democrat Party march across my screen. Can’t make me. Nope. Won’t do it.

Akzed on June 27, 2008 at 11:56 AM

Guys in Europe already looked like this before B.H.O. was making his appearance. Calling it a look is kind of redundant.

upinak on June 27, 2008 at 11:58 AM

Liberal Upper West Side dudes. Personifies the personality of Obama. Snobbery chic.

jencab on June 27, 2008 at 11:58 AM

New from Versace – the Skrote: ultimate man-bag.

In stores, Fall ’08.

Seriously, though …, a line of clothes inspired by Obama wouldn’t need models. Just parade around a bunch of empty suits and the crowd will fall all over themselves.

Are there bike helmets?

Dusty on June 27, 2008 at 11:59 AM

Is Donatella Versace saying that Barack Obama looks gay to her? Cause those clothes look gay to me. No offense to our Log Cabin Republican friends intended. Those clothes just don’t look like anything the average American Joe would wear.

I can see ‘people in these clothes’ eating arugula.

wise_man on June 27, 2008 at 12:03 PM

Nothing as cool as an open collar and a manbag? I bet Obama is just thrilled about this.

Maxx on June 27, 2008 at 12:03 PM

Where are the black male models?

The average American “Joe” is usually a afterwork, blue jeans and t-shirt type. And I am not talking the bluejeans that you buy from wherever that you have half way down your butt or the new hip hugger for men fad.

I miss the day when guys weren’t so dang metro sexual. i won’t date a guy like that… it irks me they take more time getting ready then I do.

upinak on June 27, 2008 at 12:04 PM

“Change” is a change of clothes? I hadn’t realized it was even that profound.

RBMN on June 27, 2008 at 12:04 PM

LMFAO! Ummm so lets see:

I like to go fishing, shooting and shoot bows. I don’t have a problem getting dirty and look good in hip waders (so I have been told). Speaking of fishing I am going to leave in 4 hours for REDS at the Russian River! :)

That takes the cake!

ronsfi is right; Versace’s face looks like that woman who just can’t quit the compulsion to go under the surgeons’ knife.

All Versace has accomplished here is to widened the great divide and declare Bobama a girly man’s wet dream. After WilliJeff Clinton, who the hell wants to endure a presidency riddled with sexual caprice directing foreign invasions for diversion from public scrutiny?

Of course, you’re going to do it like a real man: throw sticks of dynamite in the water and then scoop up the dead fish.

Right?

Seriously, how do these clothes relate in any way to Obama? Black men won’t wear them. They are sloppy. Methinks she was inspired by a Salvation Army store. Those clothes stink. I will say that the man purse is nice – I’ll be sure to buy one for my retired special forces boyfriend – maybe he can keep his surfboard leashes and wax in there.

HawaiiLwyr on June 27, 2008 at 12:18 PM

The veil like Cult of Personality the Media is creating around Barrack Hussein Obama is bordering on insanity. When the Dems and Obama take the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branch, watch out for you wallets, start stuffing mattresses again, burn your credit cards, maybe even consider moving to a more Capitalist friendly country like North Korea, Cuba, or Russia.

Egfrow on June 27, 2008 at 12:18 PM

carbon_footprint on June 27, 2008 at 12:03 PM

I won’t watch it, but if that is true, that is telling…Obama is cool, as long as he knows he can’t be “too black”.

Does you BF have a hetrosexual brother LOL!

upinak on June 27, 2008 at 12:19 PM

Since Obama is an empty suit, it was only a matter of time until someone hit on the idea of marketing their empty suits using his name.

Not to mention the gay pastels.

If that clip wasn’t already so completely ridiculous, they could do a parody on SNL. Maya Rudolph is hilarious as Donatella Versace.

“Man-bag”? I heard it called a “murse”. But that was by someone carrying one. Which means it’s probably the correct PC name. Get with it, AP.

Trust me, if this is the personification of the Democratic Party, we have little to fear, as this is a clear indication that the party is on the verge of cultural implosion.

I don’t start getting ready until 15 minutes until it is time to leave. And even then I still sometimes have to wait for my wife to finish getting ready. But it is worth the wait to be with that beautiful babe.

carbon_footprint on June 27, 2008 at 12:17 PM

Naahhh. Now they make a little electronic board you can fit in the palm of your hand. My brother had one. Just trail a wire behind the boat and the cats just roll up to the top, belly up, gotta be quick though, it doesn’t last long.

I went with him once in the Muddy MO, we got a 72 pounder that way. We all fell out of the boat trying to get it in. Of course, we were a little sloshed, plus there was 3 of us in a boat rated for 600lbs (I was the only one under 200) so we took on some water too.

Nothing like illegal activities, drunk, on a dangerous river.

Thank God I don’t do that crap anymore ;o)

Normal day to get ready (even if I go work out and get ready at the gym) is 20 minutes.

Going out, 35 minutes (have to blowdry and curl hair).

And I am a stickler about being on time. I am not the normal woman.

Gross, she looks like the Joker only with different clown paint.

OK, a Barry-inspired Versace line. How does this fit with MichelleMyBelle’s new every day woman look? LOL, this is ridiculous. LOL, a BHO line for all the metros. LMBO.

And I’m sure that someone has already suggested that the bag be over Donatella’s overly cosmetically altered head. Yikes! Poor woman.
