Skip to comments.Sotomayor Says White House Even Picked Out Her Clothes
Posted on 10/19/2009 9:40:18 AM PDT by NMEwithin
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's nomination process was so controlled that the White House even approved her clothes, she told Yalies when she appeared at her 30th Yale Law School reunion on Saturday.
Sotomayor described her grueling nomination process privately when she spoke to 1,800 alumni, students and faculty , the New Haven Register reports.
State Sen. Ed Meyer attended the event and said Sotomayor became teary at times, but kept the crowd laughing.
The Yale Law School grad talked about shopping for clothes to wear to her acceptance ceremony, but government officials took over the fashion decisions. They told her to bring five suits and then recommended which one she should wear, Meyer said.
Remembere the big deal made about the campaign dressing Palin?
Grueling? As compared to whom?
Robert Bork? Clarence Thomas?
She was given everything other than a limo ride and a red carpet. Sheesh!
No doubt they’ll be “picking out” her decisions too.
You have got to be kidding.
That WH fashion police needs to work on Michelle Ma-belle. She’s a disaster —— regardless of how the Lame-Stream press label her.
Which was why they chose her, to begin with...
This will be screaming headlines on all MSM front pages, just like Palin’s “wardrobe”, right?
Did the WH give Al Franken his “special” question about a TV show ?
The list, ping
Bear with me here, but I’m wondering what the chances of her getting tired of being a puppet for the White House and turning Right. Of course, we keep thinking that the press will finally tire of being whores for the White House, too, and that’s not happening.
Entirely possible, as Franken is unable to walk, and chew gum simultaneously...
Sort of the same thing happened to Mrs. Palin. Isn’t this kind of insulting to Sotomayor, and her personal taste and sense of style? Did they think she was going to arrive in a Carmen Miranda outfit with platform shoes and fruit attached to her headgear? She seems to take this all in stride, but if I were a “wise Latina,” I would have confidence enough in my own taste and knowledge to figure out what looks good on TV, what doesn’t and what is appropriate for a Supreme Court nominee to wear. I am trying to imagine Reagan telling Sandra Day O’Connor what to wear, or Bill Clinton’s White House have the nerve to dictate to Ruth Bader Ginsburg what were appropriate outfits to wear in public. The “wise Latina” doesn’t get it: SHE HAS BEEN DISSED BIG-TIME.
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!
And what a bunch of loathesome control freeks in the White House.
State Run Media commentary. Remember? By the way ALL top candidates from both parties get wardrobes and consultants.
One shall infer that none of these government officials were white men, for we all know, thanks to Sotomayor, none of them could have been wiser than this latina woman.
She described the process “privately” in front of a crowd of 1800.
Unlikely, at best, as Sotomayor is another "true believer in Socialism" type. Any rebellion on her part would not be a shift to the Right, but more likely further to the Left. The White House would be "picking her decisions" to obscure what they were doing, where she would be more open about it...
Ah, great minds and all that rot, although when I read this I assumed for us brilliant Freepers thinking this would be the first thing that came to mind
I guess we will be seeing all the news shows and sundry other State-Run print media will be all over this as to the cost and what was the disposition of said clothes???
Right! When pigs fly!!!
Libs, thy name is "Hypocrite!"
Gosh....I wonder who in the White House makes these decisions? If Michelle had the final say, then Sonia would certainly look like a circus clown.
Hey, under the Obama administration we’re going to wind up looking like star trekkies all wearing the same uniform. He wants to take over EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of our lives!
Was the White House afraid she would wear a LaRaza t-shirt and a big mexican poncho? How racist of them...
The puppet must be dressed right.
Here's the difference: Gov. Palin was to be on an extended campaign tour, many events, many different cities, no time in between to go all the way back up to Alaska to get a significant change of clothes for the appearances, and was not taken on a shopping spree, as was portrayed by the you-know-who's in the fringe media.
Sotomayor wasn't going on any extended trip, plenty of time to choose appropriate clothing, yet she wasn't even allowed to do her own. Kind of insulting? It's totally insulting, the idea that she isn't capable of selecting an outfit to wear to a law school reunion, where the dress code is pretty standard and any clerk in a decent clothing store, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, etc., could provide assistance if necessary.
This is ridiculous beyond words ... I'm supposed to trust the judgment of a woman re: the laws of our nation when they don't even trust her clothing sense??
And it is especially insulting considering that here appearances were going to be in Washington, DC, not exactly the fashion center of the nation. A decent black suit, a decent taupe suit, a decent red suit for special occasions, a pair of low-heel black shoes, and you’re ready to go.
Are we sure this is correct??? I don't remember seeing Sotomoyer in a boob belt!
0bama thinks she’s a doll.
(He thinks he can dress her, undress her, and play with her)...
It had to be controlled because no one in their right mind would have approved of her being on the Supreme Court.
“No doubt theyll be picking out her decisions too.”
They’ve already got it in bookform for easy reference!
Boob belt, hilarious!!
Just great validation from the WH on her decision-making capabilities.
That explains the Boob Belts and second-hand sweater sets.
...grueling nomination process
Yeah, sure, whatever
okay....okay....that’s creepy....must get picture of Rahm
Emmanuel laying size 18 panties on the bed spread....out...of....head........
I suspect Michelle’s ego is so large that she picks out her own clothes(except on the few occasions where she looks half decent)and wears what she wants. She is not the fashion queen the SRM makes her out to be, that is for sure(nor is she the beauty that they try to claim either).
Tell us, Justice Sotomayor, will the WH also be picking out your opinions?
NO! NO WAY!!!! THAT can’t be real! It’s GOTTA be photo-shopped, yes?
Not even the fashion police can remedy fashion DOA.
I love the bullseye on the bellybutton look.
I was thinking that if the someone in the White House made the decisions on Sotomayor’s clothes, then they should have that person help Michelle. At least Sotomayor looked better than Michelle often does!
