Pictures of Alex / make my life so wonderful [apologies to the Who]

Here’s how Mickey Kaus sums up the Alexandra Kerry in a see-through dress brouhaha: “Hello? Do Americans want a first daughter who parades around in a dress Paris Hilton would be embarrassed to wear?” Corollary question: do Americans want a first daughter named “Alexandra?”

I know this is small potatoes in the grand scheme, but doesn’t this mini-controversy stir up all the salacious imagery of the Clinton years? Remember, Al Gore famously blamed Clinton’s lasciviousness on the loss of religious voters, especially in Tennessee and Arkansas. As Mickey also notes: “I guess Kerry really is writing off the South!”
