This is unprecedented. It's a little creepy, considering that Sonia Rykiel is French, and Stella McCartney is a Brit. What's their interest? I personally don't really follow other countries' elections avidly. There are a few, but I sure wouldn't do an Angela Merkel sweater. Really. Hell, I wouldn't do a Prince Charles sweater either, and his ears are just as big.
It bothers me that this guy is barely American, born here, educated overseas, was the victim of prejudice in Hawaii. OMG, freaking racially charged Ala Moana. Trust me, THAT's much different than Mississippi or Texas.
Why do I think he's barely American? There's his younger brother in Kenya, and his older brother in China, and don't forget the one in England. And there seems to be another one in Kenya.... it looks like Daddy Obama's specialty was women. Hit and quit it. But it's not that Daddy was a rogue, it's that it gives me a sense of rootlessness, of non-commitment. A lot of political figures have questionable family members, I am just used to them living in the same country, and meeting each other early on.
It says superficial attachment to me. And if a person is superficially attached to his family, is it possible that they could be superficially attached to a nation? Even tho they stood way up in the political food chain?
