Ann Coulter attacks Michelle Obama's style

January 4, 2009 |  9:49 pm

81388721 Conservative dervish Ann Coulter -- a woman with a penchant for peroxide and very short little blac72088785_2k dresses -- has shredded Michelle Obama's style.  The N.Y. Daily News reports that Coulter's upcoming book, "Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and their Assault on America," includes this take on the future first lady's look:

Her obvious imitation of Jackie O's style - the flipped-under hair, the sleeveless A-line dresses, the short strands of fake pearls - would have been laughable if done by anyone other than a media-designated saint.

Clearly, Coulter forgets that fashion types love to titter and their resounding approval of Obama's distinctive look has nothing to do with party lines. And never mind that Obama has bravely worn lesser known designers like Thakoon and Narciso Rodriguez. The fact that Coulter goes on to applaud Cindy McCain's stiff and rather uninspired style only further disqualifies her as a fashion critic. But it would be fun to weigh in on GOP vs. liberal style. Anyone?
