Rightwing “Girls” Love Louis Vuitton And Whole Foods???
The Winston Review ^ | 13 August, 2011 | -TWR-

I guess they can’t help it, but some bestselling rightwing authors have surprising tastes.

Ann Coulter: Louis Vuitton | Coulter (above) likes making fun of those pro-appeasement Frenchmen, but she’s also been caught on camera strolling around the Hamptons with her Louis Vuitton bag, and can’t resist French restaurants, where she orders “Freedom Fries” – just to stir the pot, our guess.

Jonah Goldberg: Whole Foods | But thankfully he doesn’t have a man bag, or drive a pious Prius, to the best of our knowledge. Whole Foods “where I shop frequently, by the way” admits Goldberg in Liberal Fascism is “fascinating.”

Michelle Makin: Banana Republic | “I’ve got $50 Banana Republic flats, which I thought were a splurge until I saw the other Michelle’s footwear,” the budget conscious Michelle Malkin has blogged. She usually wears her “ratty old New Balance sneakers.”

Years ago, before there was a Walmart, in my area at least, and we still had a few department stores, that unfortunately no longer exist, I was worrying over spending $2-$3 dollars on a new pair of no-name brand sneakers and Katie Couric was on her morning show, gushing something like “Ooooh, $700.00 that’s not not a bad price for a pair of yellow snake skin boots. That’s certainly a reasonable price for those. They are really nice.” $700.00? A reasonable price? Choke, Choke, Gag, Gag...Light dawns on my marblehead, as I had realized for a long time that TV was dominated by the wealthy, but just hearing that comment come out of her mouth as if $700.00 which would have clothed my family for the year, was an easier decision to make for her, then me buying $2-$3 dollar sneakers, was irksome. And I’ve had nothing but contempt for her and those of the same ilk as her.

Sweet Hubby and I shop at both Wal-mart and Whole Foods for our groceries. Whole Foods is for produce, bread and peanut butter dog biscuits and Wal-mart is for all the rest.

Lib preaching at WF? Really? I’ve never heard/seen it. I shop there all the time. And I’ve shopped at WF in 3 states, including Washington.

Maybe it’s just the Whole foods in Thousand Oaks, CA where every aisle had its own liberal lecture. Come to think of it, I was expecting that when going into the one near Santa Monica not long ago but it wasn’t bad — in the very heart of leftiness!
