This week was yet another in the race to lower the ethics bar of American Society. The sheer hypocrisy on display by America’s political, entertaintment and sports “ICONS” is now a weekly event. I don’t use the word ‘event’ lightly as it of great value to cable and media outlets. And with advertising budgets in the tank, desperate times call for even dirtier measures.
Hireheelers know politics is dirty business and that President Obama owes a whole lotta peeps in need of a good salt scrub (may i recommend the Caudalie Spa in the Bordeaux region). Mr. Daschle, who makes Joe the Plumber look like the Pope, is just one crony in a long line of Election 2008 creditors awaiting payment. I remain ever curious to see how dynamic duo from Hyde Park gets paid (can’t wait for that story to ‘ayer’). All this while our gal Hillary lugs around her six million dollar debt in her Birkan bag. Indeed, the more I hear about the personal lives of our American Poli-Idols who are expected to lead by example, the more I am reminded of the John Edwards endorsement last spring and what it shouldn’t have meant.
But I digress. I know it’s not productive to rehash old news. Who out there isn’t sick of being called a whiny white woman? But if we were to shut down HireHeels, I would doubtless end up in therapy, and that’s a costlier proposition than ranting in my zanotti stilettos. So you’re stuck with us for a little bit, while we retool the site to create more value for you!
If it doesn’t work out, we will enter the dirt collection business. We’ve got some stored in our closet on one certain political news analyst. We’ll throw it out there one day, when the time is right and watch it bubble up and ‘reGurgitate’ in the 24/7 news cycle.
