Politicians are known for skirting the issues, but here’s a bizarre case of a Senator scared to comment on a skirt.
An itsy-bitsy Barbie-sized skirt that — so far — carries no scandals.
To be fair, it was the staff of U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) that is running away from her new action figure and my questions about the appropriateness/eeriness of Republican groupies dressing the toy in provocative outfits. For all I know, the Senator herself might roll her eyes or smirk at the surreality of it all.
But as I wrote in this month’s New Hampshire Magazine, the Herobuilders toy company has done the Ayotte staff a HUGE favor. If I were an Ayotte event planner, I’d want to know who my doll-fetish constituents were — and be very careful about where I sat them at the next fundraising dinner.
(As an aside, I remain a huge fan of illustrator Brad Fitzpatrick, who also did the cartoon for my piranha pedicure column in NH Magazine.)
