Granted that I didn’t have a high opinion of Michelle Bachmann’s logical capacities in the first place, but given that she correlates her head pain with “high heel days”, am I to understand that her conclusion is truly that she would rather take several pills a day to control her severe headaches or migraines (she doesn’t appear to know, or at least doesn’t care to explain, the difference) than just stop wearing such high heels?
Putting her appearance ahead of her health actually seems the most sensible option? This choice is something she feels presents her in a favourably prudential light as a candidate for high office of any sort, let alone for the presidency?
It wasn’t that long ago that a woman seeking political office wearing anything more tottery than a low court heel would have been considered obviously frivolous*. Why not make a stand for a return to those traditional values, eh?
* I actually agree that high heels are frivolous things which ought best be reserved for frivolous occasions, where they can be fully fabulous, rather than be considered a standard expectation of daily attire.
