• Rick Santorum Ruins the Sweater Vest for the Rest of Humanity

    Never before, in our nation's storied history, have a candidate and a fashion choice been so perfectly matched to one another. It's hard to tell where one's worminess ends and the other's smarminess begins

    As Rick Santorum surges in the Iowa polls, his collection of sweater vests is also winning popularity. Santorum has taken to wearing the sleeveless V-necks while campaigning in Iowa; the sartorial choice apparently first garnered attention at a Des Moines forum a few weeks ago during which most other candidates wore suits. "It sort of took on a life of its own" after that, he explains. "So I started wearing more and more. My staff bought me a bunch more."…

    Pointing out that he, at age 53, was mistaken for 32 while in Iowa, Santorum said, "I’m thinking the sweater vest makes me look a little older and that might be a good thing."

    Rick Santorum and the sweater vest… A plague on both your houses.
