Polichicks: November 2009 Archives
Will Prez Obama put an end to this? Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt share a smooch.
Us Magazine reports that an anonymous source told the publication - okay, this is starting to sound a little iffy already - that Angelina Jolie isn't digging President Obama.
According to Us Magazine's "Deepthroat," Angie "hates" Obama and thinks he's "all smoke and mirrors."
Deepthroat also alleges that Angie's dislike of Obama is causing problems in her love life, as her boyfriend, Brad Pitt, is a supporter and distant cousin of the president.
"They get in really nasty arguments about it all the time," reveals Deepthroat. "She doesn't respect Brad when it comes to politics, but, in the end, this won't tear them apart."
If you're like us, last night you slipped on your Bettie Boop fleece pajamas from Wal-Mart, fixed yourself a cup of Nestle dark chocolate hot cocoa, and stayed up late to watch Oprah Winfrey interview Sarah Palin. (The show re-broadcasts at 1 am.)
Ugh, getting up for work tomorrow (well today) is gonna be ugly schmugly.
But to report the drama, we have to watch it first. So on that note, here's your Daily Polichicks:
* Gone Vogue. Well, not exactly. Sarah Palin is Newsweek's cover girl.
* And Sarah seemed excited about her new book when she appeared on Oprah on Monday. Not jump up and down on Miss Oprah's couch excited, but excited just the same. Sarah's book, Going Rogue: An American Life, is in stores Tuesday and is already a best seller.
Sarah also talked to Oprah about the past election; the McCain camp's attempts to muzzle her during the campaign; her campaign wardrobe; Katie Couric; and her daughter's ex, Levi Johnston, whom she has "affectionately" porn named "Ricky Hollywood."
* A report by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (a division of the Department of Health and Human Services) has some good news and bad news for Americans. The good news is that the healthcare plan passed by the House will help the uninsured get health insurance . The bad news is that it will increase healthcare costs and limit seniors ability to choose a doctor, as cuts to Medicare will mean that some practitioners will no longer see Medicare patients. A White House healthcare advisor called the report "speculative."
* Never a fan of Hillary Clinton's style, Tim Gunn warned a Project Runway finale contestant that that the charcoal, pleated pantsuit she designed was too Hillary. (We tried to find a pic for you, but there's not one of that ugly thing on the web.) So take note: the Hillary is out for fall.
Have a great day, chickies!
Catch Sarah Palin on Oprah in 10 minutes (Monday at 4pm EST). Palin will talk about the past election, Katie Couric, Levi Johnston, her family and her new book.
Michelle Obama attended the Veterans Day wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of Unknown Soldiers at Arlington Cemetery on Wednesday.
Mrs. Obama was dressed in blue, bringing a dash of color to Washington on a rainy, dreary day. In light of poor economy, the First Lady stuck with affordable brands and recycled items of clothing that we have seen before.
Mrs. Obama wore her blue tweed coat by J Crew, which you may recall from her lunch date with the mayor of D.C. and his wife this past January. This time, however, Mrs. Obama added a wide black leather belt around the waist of her coat.
She also recycled the teal blue dress that she debuted at the DNC Convention in 2008. Mrs. Obama polished her look off with flat, knee high boots in patent leather.
(LOVE the boots! Close up below.)
Just thought we'd give our veterans some sugar.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is on the cover of the December issue of Latina (on stands November 17).
She strikes a patriotic pose with her hand over her heart. (Note her fab brick red nail polish.)
Latina is honoring Justice Sotomayor as the Woman of the Decade.
Designer Isabel Toledo showed her spring collection at the home of the Swiss Ambassador in Washington D.C. Wednesday.
Toldeo is best known for designing the lemongrass dress and overcoat that Mrs. Obama wore to her husband's inauguration.
The clothes in Toledo's collection are, of course, totally gorge. (Check them out in the video above). We also love the backdrop of her fashion show, which is a feminine floral pattern done in black and white.
Politico reporter Kiki Ryan gives full scoop on the show over here.
Mary Tomer is the founder of Mrs. O, a blog following Michelle Obama's fashion choices.
Below she talks to Better TV about her new book, Mrs. O: The Face of Fashion Democracy. The book chronicles Mrs. Obama's style with photographs of her most iconic looks and commentary from fashion notables.

Sarah Jessica Parker
The President's Committee on Arts and Humanities just got a little more fashionable. Sarah Jessica Parker and Vogue editor Anna Wintour are new members of the Committee.
Other celebs just named to the Committee are Forrest Whitaker, Alfre Woodard, Edward Norton and Yo-Yo Ma.
According to its website, the Committee works with "the three primary cultural agencies - National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) - to initiate and support key programs; to recognize excellence in the fields of arts and humanities; and to encourage private-public partnerships around those disciplines."
The Committee was established in 1982.
When it comes to health care reform, we're hoping for a plan with mandatory fat days.
As in, "Hello, Boss? I'm a little bloated and my Ann Taylor pencil skirt is a bit snug. I'm calling in fat today." Or more simply, "Boss, I feel fat."
"Feel better. See you tomorrow!" responds Boss, with cheerful empathy.
House Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has a few ideas about health care reform too. She released a $894 billion bill Thursday that would, according to her, extend healthcare coverage to 36 million families without adding to the federal deficit. The bill does not include a public healthcare plan option.
The response? Republicans say they're holding out for less bureaucracy and a smaller price tag.
Liberals are holding out for a public option.
And we're holding out for the fat days.
Nicole Kidman testified before before the House Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Wednesday. She asked for $1 billion to help combat violence against women around the world.
Ms. Kidman wore a black pant suit, nutral makeup and her hair styled in large, loose curls.
If you think two fashionistas fist fighting over the last pair of stiletto Mary Janes at a Jimmy Choo sample sale is bad, you ain't seen nothin' yet. The White House and Fox News are seriously going at it.
