That piece about the Crocs is spot on. Robin Givhan is an amazingly smart fashion writer -- she won the first Pulitzer ever given to a fashion reporter.

And it's good to know that the Crocs president is throwing Republican fundraisers. An even better reason not to wear them.

They lampooned Crocs on the CBC's 22 Minutes by airing a commerical for "Dorcs."

A sassy gal walks through the office and proclaims: "Hey everyone, I'm giving fashion the finger - Dorc style!"

I love Cathy Jones.

I never thought I'd never reach a day when I appreciate Birkenstocks. Then I set my eyes on a pair of Crocs.

So, if the Office of the Vice President isn't part of the Executive Branch, would someone please tell Mr. Cheney to get the FUCK OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE!

You must have missed Cheneys recently published manifesto in the Everyone Thinks Im Insane-Os Home Journal. The introduction was written by SCJ Scalia.

Is that the one with the picture of him dressed as Scrooge McDuck, doing the backstroke in the WH pool filled with thousand dollar bills?
