BREAKING NEWS!!! New White House Scandal!!!


No, seriously.

From WaPo:

A White House counsel known for her shoes

It may say more about Washington than White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler that she’s known in the West Wing for her fabulous shoes.

Ruemmler first attracted attention for her glam heels as a Justice Department prosecutor trying Enron executives Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling in 2006, when she sported what The Wall Street Journal described as “stunning 4-inch bright pink stiletto spikes.”

A legal affairs blog “Above The Law,” called her a “star litigatrix” as a result. ”Litigatrix indeed,” the blog wrote. “Just because you work for the DOJ doesn’t mean you have to shop at DSW.”

Now, she wears Manolo Blahniks and Christian Louboutins into the Oval Office.

One of Ruemmler’s pairs has a jeweled paisley pattern; another is black and strappy. We tried to get a photo from the White House showing one of these exceptional pairs; instead we got this shot of her in a senior staff meeting with the president, revealing a conventional pair of heels.

When White House Council of Economic Advisers chairman Alan B. Krueger briefs the senior staff on how consumer confidence has risen, according to White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri, aides routinely inquire whether Ruemmer has gone shopping.

“Her shoe buying can move markets,” Palmieri quipped.

You know who else likes shoes?

Sarah Palin.

    Shoegate is a pedestrian tale.

    7 men to 1 woman… They’re not even paying attention to her in that picture…


    All this article is pointing out is that she better get a pair of Ruby Slippers – ’cause they’re about to drop that house on her any minute.

  4. And that,ladies and gentlemen, is what passes for “penetrating investigative journOlism” in today’s WaPo. What a year for squirrels! Record setting! Look, see!

    How does she feel with that giant target on her back (to take the attention off of Jersey Shore Obama)?

    In other words, she prosecuted Enron and that’s why Republicans are going after her. Two memes in one article. Juliet Eilperin is vying for Ruemmler’s spot in Obama’s graces.

    • Another squirrel. Rosen was not a blogger or a tweeter, though he may have tweeted. Holder did not target bloggers or tweeters; he targeted journalistS.

        Didn’t you hear? Fox is not “real” news. It’s not news until the MSM covers it, like Benghazi or ACORN disbanding.

        If you want news eventually, watch the MSM. If you want the news first, watch Fox.

      If the rest of the country succeeded from DC and called ourselves muslims do you think our citizens could get their money back and the backtrack bunch could called them selves good business men and humanitarians?

    I don’t understand women and shoes. Apparently women’s shoes say a lot, the problem is they never really tell us what they say? Kind of like this article, I’m like, yeah, so what? But it’s a very clever piece of propaganda, because the image of those shoes will resonate with people. The problem is, I don’t speak the language so I don’t know what the message is.

      Body adornment is a cultural universal . Shoes while functional , can be adornment . Just like any other item of clothing , hats sweaters etc.They can reflect status , wealth , and creativity . A “well shod ” person is a person who is in good circumstances . For women , shoes can also have a very definite sexual inference. Really high sexy heels on a woman are commonly called “F*ck me ” shoes .It seems as if Kathryn Ruemmler has a bit of a foot fetish thing going on .

      • myiq2xu says:

        For every woman who collects shoes there is a guy out there who collects comic books and/or sports memorabilia.

        At least shoes are functional.

        • DeniseVB says:

          …..or pre-war toy trains, early 19th century stamps and Civil War books. Believe me, shoes are cheaper. 😉

        • Constance says:

          Many women’s shoes are not functional they are torture devices. It tells me something when women are willing to wear a torture device to work to look “atractive”. It makes me think they are pathetic.

      • myiq2xu says:

        We called them “CFM” shoes.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      AMEN To me shoes are just to keep my feet clean. 😆

  9. HELENK says:

    didn’t shopping for shoes hurt Condi Rice during Katrina?

  10. foxyladi14 says:

    It’s different when they do it. 😆

  11. DeniseVB says:

    I saw a couple of tweets today referring to “knowing more about the WH counselor’s consumer habits than where Obama was the night of Benghazi” ….. now it makes sense 😀

    Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
    Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.

    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.

    how many lives destroyed ??

    Surely most of us remember Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeanie)? This is cute, and at 78 she looks GREAT. Looks younger than Bill Clinton 😀
