Manolo the Columnist: Loden from 10 Crosby Derek Lam

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

Thanks to Congress and the President, starting this week, I have a lot free time on my hands. I’ve decided to go shoe shopping. I especially need new tall boots for fall. What do you recommend?

Manolo says, Ayyyy! To listen to the congress peoples shouting about the government “shutdown”, it is as if the mega-major-super disaster had struck the nation, such as the tsunami, or the big earthquake, or that the volcano had violently erupted in the courtyard of the Smithsonian, burying the entire Capitol Hill in hot lava. (Although, according to the recent opinion poll, the Pompeii-ization of Congress enjoys the hearty approval of 97 percent of the American peoples.)

And this is why the Manolo is the monarchist, because the worst king is better than the best gaggle of politicians.

Imagine how much more pleasant the United States of the America would be if, instead of the incessant politicking, we could all relax, safe in the knowledge that our sovereign was, like Charles the II of England, primarily interested in hunting, wenching, and amateur theatrics.

No longer will we need pay attention to our odious political class, always shouting for our attention and insulting our intelligence. Instead we will have the dignified pomp and circumstance of proper leadership.

And yes, the Manolo has the perfect candidate to be acclaimed our first king; Jay Leno. He is tall, sufficiently genial, and already possessed of the impressive Hapsburg chin. What more is needed?

Here is the Loden from the 10 Crosby Derek Lam, the dramatic, over-the-knee boot that will be the perfect feetwear to usher in our new golden age. Manolo shouts, Long Live the King Jay the First!

    Did the Manolo call in to the Diane Rehm Show today, because a gentleman caller (with apologies to Mr. Williams) voiced the identical opinion re: monarchy?

    There was also a longstanding myth that Jay Leno was Canadian, which would take him one step closer to the monarchy. Uberactor Jason Priestley once asked him about his Canadian roots and many Canadians took a collective gasp when they learned that Leno was in fact not a Canuck.




  2. Dawn Says:

    He isn’t? I thought he always claimed he was!

    There is a great deal to be said for the Benevolent Monarchy, things which cannot truly be said about our current political ‘class’.




  3. orthodoc Says:

    Eh, so what. Charles II was half-French, Elizabeth is German, and Prince Phillip is Greek. Leno can be an honorary Canuck, and then he can be king!




  4. Judith A. Greenwood Says:

    Those are exquisite, Manolo. I forgive you half the platforms you have posted, but only half.




  5. Taylor M Says:

  6. Pantofi Says:
