Christian Louboutain Boots For the Monday

Manolo says, it is Monday and you are back at your desk, and frankly, for once you are so happy to be there, although not nearly as happy as you are to know that tomorrow this election madness finally ends.

This is absolutely the last time you register you political party as “independent”. Indeed, your phone must have rung forty times this weekend, what with the robo-calls, and the pollsters, and the polite young people from both of the campaigns, trying to sway your vote, or begging for money.

Nearly as bad as the phone calls, was the constant bombardment of the television ads. Mendacity and hyperbole, bombast and misdirection, and numberless attempts to frighten and bully you into voting one way or the other, and those were just the ads for the county supervisors.

And then there is the entire problem of social discourse. You have spent the past several months tip-toeing around your acquaintances and business colleagues, speaking obliquely and avoiding certain topics, lest these peoples turn out to be the avidly unreasonable supporters of one faction or the other.

One minute you are talking about taking your nephews to the zoo, because they “love the elephants” and the next, you are embroiled in the heated argument about tax policy with someone you barely know.

Oy, but this is tiresome. You long for the days when participatory democracy meant voting for the homecoming queen, not trying to sort out the various currents and subcurrents of the modern American political system.

But, what can you do? You are the good citizen, and so you do your part, educating yourself and participating as best you can, even if you find all of it about as satisfying as the trip to the dentist.

And now you need the break, the long, pleasant, politics-free break.

Wait. What’s this in the Post? “The 2012 race commences first thing Wednesday morning.”

“Ayyyyy! Manolo take me away!”

This level of weary malaise and alarm calls for something super fantastic, some spectacular, something Louboutain!

Boots, platform, tall, fantastic, super.

    The Manolo gently reminds his internet friends that the Manolo’s humble shoe blog is not the place for the heated political arguments. There are eleventy-hundred million other blogs where such things may take place.

    Here is the place of refuge, where we may come together in the spirit of generosity and mutual comity, secure in the knowledge that although we may differ on our politics, we still love the shoes.

    The hotness of those boots sneaks up on you. At first, you’re like, ok, it’s a black boot…then the red sole and platform and 4-inch heel smack you upside the head and you’re, like, whoa, that ain’t just any boot.

    Now I am wondering which color of Calgon best goes with the boots.

    The Annalucia is less troubled by the noisy and tedious Endless Campaign than she is by the news coming out of the Argentina. She hopes the Manolo is safe and secure.

    She also knows that she could not walk in those boots if her life depended upon it. But they are pretty to look at, and that is enough for now.

    I would like to formally thank the Manolo for providing the blessed refuge of a PFZ (politics-free zone).

    I long for the day when I will once again be able to wear some serious black boots–alas, not until the ankle swelling has subsided…

    It is like the Manolo has a window into my mind. Though I have a preference as to who I would like to win the election, my biggest fear is that there will be some sort of disastrous snafu, and this ordeal will simply drag on and on. So yes, I will take comfort in the fabulous boots, cross my fingers and hope for the best.

    If my county supervisor gave me those boots I would vote for him.

    Those are pure sex! The seduction of those is easily overlooked.
    just like Victor said. At first you look and say to yourself “meh…”

    But even if McCain was giving them away for votes, well, it would be closer…

    I want!!!

    Despite my love of all things political, I find myself agreeing with the Manolo 100%- wishing that tomorrow were over with (and with it, my requisite junk-food-vote-party-hangover) and I could once again have sanity in my life. The Louboutin boots are just the thing to remind me that better days are coming!

    Mendacity and Hyperbole – wasn’t that a Tennessee Williams play?

    Or aren’t they popular names Southern nouveaux riche folks – I’m thinking the Rich Housewives of Atlanta, perhaps – are using for their unsuspecting little babies?

    Love the names, I must put them to use somewhere.


    *I could name my next pair of kittens these names – there’s a thought.
