There should be no argument against more women representatives in Congress, but they should first and foremost, LOOK LIKE WOMEN!
Rosa Luisa DeLauro
If United States Congressional props truly are mirrored reflections of constituents they claim to represent in Washington DC, this image of Congresswoman DeLauro deserves a few--very few-- words of criticism. And perhaps a requisition for several thousand psychologist be dispatched to study the citizens of Connecticut, and an analysis of their weird sense of humor.
According to Forbes Magazine, "What you wear can inform passersby of your type of employment, as well as your ambitions, emotions and spending habits." The article continues by quoting a Clinical Psychologist who states, “The worst clothing is the kind that tries to undo, ignore or hide where or who you are, or the kind that shows you didn’t pay attention to your body/age/situation..."
DeLauro, who represents the New Haven, Connecticut area certainly does not stand alone when making a fashion statement, whether it be a conscious or unconscious decision. One of our favorites happens to be Congresswoman Frederica Wilson of Florida. And although her attire is rather spiffy in comparison to DeLauro's put-her-in-a-bag-with-stuff-and-shake-it-up-and-out-pours-Rosa look, Frederica actually might qualify for walking the rodeo runway at a pig barbque, somewhere in San Antonio, Texas. Commenting on her stash of gay-Roy Rodgers hats "It's almost like a fetish... I have hundreds," Wilson remarked to the Miami Herald on a collection she estimates at well over 300.
It is not so much the clothing this next Congresswoman wears, but rather the mental stability of the Congresswoman filling the embellished empty fifty pound flour sacks-- Nancy Pelosi has to be one of the most despicable female human beings allowed existence beyond her second birthday. One would have expected a challenged older brother to convince her the garbage compacter was a safe hiding place, during one of those childhood games of hide-and-seek.
Any thoughts of this woman filling such a lofty position, and anywhere near a position of power is enough to frighten even the most courageous among us. Just so we are clear Nancy, it is not your regal-like attire, but simply 'the botoxed' face and....well, the very existence of the body it's attached to that worries most sane thinking Americans. Being a Representative of the San Francisco, California area, we understand why it is that you have been returned so many times to fill that Congressional seat in Washington. On the bright side--your remaining life expectancy days are on the side of our nation's children.
Given a choice, no doubt we would probably go with someone more in this league for women in congress: This is actress Aishwarya Rai, and although she is a citizen of India and would not qualify under our current American citizenship laws to be a member of Congress, this is one time I might consider Barack Obama using his Presidential Executive powers, to make an exception!
Besides, with someone like Aishwarya representing women in Congress, that body (wrong choice of words) may not get much legislative work done, but then, that would be a step in the right direction.
