Is Barack Obama the first metrosexual candidate for president?
Andy Martin says Barack Obama should look at his own feet before he criticizes John McCain’s shoes. Pedicure politics comes to the presidential campaign.

(DENVER, CO)(DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION)[August 25, 2008] Who’d a thunk it? Feet and shoes taking center place in a presidential campaign?
And, finally, our long national nightmare is over?
America has a metrosexual candidate of the United States: Barack Obama.
Feet and shoes are no minor matter, mind you. Jesus washed his disciples’ feet as a show of humility. We talk about “getting the boot,” and in Britain they use the expression “putting the boot into” somebody. “Shoeless” Joe Jackson entered baseball history, http://www.shoelessjoejackson.com. Putting your foot in your mouth is a common expression. I often hear someone “hoofing it” in a hurry. “Barefoot” Sanders’ ran for office and became a federal judge.
I have heard the expression to “bigfoot someone.” Well, come to think of it, Maybe MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann is obsessed with ole Big Foot. After all, a phony “Big Foot” was recently featured on Olbermann’s program. Suckerrr.
Olbermann and some of his fellow travelers in the mainstream media have recently been obsessed with Senator John McCain’s shoes. Seems they are too expensive for Olbermann’s taste. Olbermann may get a paycheck from NBC, but he might as well be on Barack Obama’s payroll. So what gives with the shoes?
Obama is trying to demonize McCain by showing him as wealthy and out of touch. Obama attacked McCain’s homes and left Olbermann, always the yapping attack dog, to attack McCain’s shoes. But, if anything, soft shoes keep you in touch, not out of touch.
The media’s obsession with John McCain’s shoes over the past few weeks got me to thinking. Hmm. If Obama and Olbermann, as well as Olbermann’s TV wife (nee Maddow) are obsessed with McCain’s Ferragamo loafers, maybe they should take a look down at their own feet. Especially Obama’s.
Obama is the first metrosexual candidate for president.
Obama receives pedicures for his dainty little toes.
In places like New York and Los Angeles, women flock to manicurists and pedicurists. Nail salons are on every corner. “Madge” the manicurist was a TV advertising staple. When I told a good friend about this column she said “I wish I had the money to go.” Ahh, class warfare. Rich vs. poor?
But few men, other than apparently fellow African-American Bryan Gumbel, receive pedicures on a regular basis.
Senator Obama thus qualifies as the first metrosexual candidate for president.
Is there a pedicure gap? In the battleground states?
How many men in Ohio and Pennsylvania, and Illinois for that matter, have ever had a pedicure? How many struggling voters in battleground states are going to vote for a “pedicure candidate” for president, Mr. Obama? Not many I suspect. Is Obama going to raise taxes to cover the costs of installing a spa in the White House?
The irony is, of course, that Mr. McCain may need a pedicure as well, because his shoulders were crippled by North Vietnamese torturers at the Hanoi Hilton. He has difficulty reaching over.
And, so we close with the age-old admonition, Andy Martin’s law of pedestrian politics: Before you walk in another man’s shoes, check your own feet. If you don’t, you might get stomped. With Ferragamo loafers.
