Camelot Revisited

Coincidence? Or outfits and an image planned too carefully? Say hello to Judge John G. Roberts, left, and his wife Jane, right, with their children Jack and Josie.

    i think im going 2 b sick…

  2. Just one problem…

    That bitch is fugly!

  3. And of course, the Roberts family is to be despised, because he is conservative. But the Kennedys are to be admired simply because they’re Kennedys.

    oh bs. they’re to be dispised for other reasons too. 1. yeah, they’re definitely trying to evoke a kennedy-esque look here, and anyone riding others (especially deceased peoples) image to fame/worth/clout/reputation or whatever is dispicable. and 2. people who use their oh-so-precious little kids to further their own career suck. and 3. dressing up their kids like they’re on a postcard from 1916. wtf.

  5. IMesh

    A bit too Children-of-the-corn”ish” to me….

  6. doofus

    uh, thaddeus?

    who’s saying that the Roberts should be despised because they’re conservative? or despised at ALL? seems that miu is just pointing out that they seem to be “copying” an image of another political family. and the WP is just saying that, essentially, the kids look like their parents tried too hard to make them look the part.

    as for the other part of your post, who is saying that the Kennedys should be admired “simply because they’re kennedys”?

    a little defensive, are ya? one might even go as far as to say “paranoid”.

    don’t take an observation on someone’s clothes as a tirade against that person’s politics.

  7. Scariest crap I’ve seen in a long time. Could they possibly be more stiff and fake? And the Aryan dream children makes me want to cut myself. I’m definitely not falling for that 50′s inspired psuedo innocent bs.

    They looked just like a typical WHITE all-American family would be dressed for their fathers big day.You people are ridiculous. I guess you liberals would have been happy if she dressed the kids in flip flops and cutoffs.

    The Roberts family was trashed because they represent upper middle class WHITE conservative people with traditional family values.

    By the way, The Kennedy clan are DEMOCRATS,and I can assure you no REPUBLICAN would want to emulate them. Especially Teddy Chappaquidick.

    They are not copying anyone. This is what’s known as “Sunday Best”, and appropriate for the occassion. This is what people wear to church and weddings all over the US. We can’t all wear black every minute. It is also not Aryan or Republican only dress, since every African American family in the South wears these exact same styles. I know, I dressed half of them in Columbus, GA. Wonkette just pissed that the outing of their son as gay didn’t work out. Turns out the lefties didn’t know he was four years old. I guess you won’t post the picture of the little boy breakdancing while the President was talking. Petty, much?

  10. “who’s saying that the Roberts should be despised because they’re conservative? or despised at ALL? seems that miu is just pointing out that they seem to be “copying” an image of another political family. and the WP is just saying that, essentially, the kids look like their parents tried too hard to make them look the part.”

    Relax, I wasn’t making a serious political statement. I was being sarcastic.

    Frankly, I think a statement of “It sickens me that someone would try to emulate theirselves like someone else, especially deceased persons, only to gain fame or notoriety” is complete BS. I really don’t think The Roberts are trying to emulate the Kennedys. Hell, Laura Bush has that exact same pink suit – it’s a staple piece for any conservative woman’s wardrobe, especially the pearls. Like someone said, her children are dressed in their Sunday best. I even had the same outfit that boy had when I was his age.

    What do you expect Mrs. Roberts and children to dress in? A skin tight leopard skin mini skirt; baggy hip-hop style shorts; a tank top?

    The kids are dressed in “Sunday best”. There are not that many styles of dressy clothes for little kids. And the wife’s suit? Other than being pink, what is JackieO about it? It’s a typical “wifey” suit… tasteful, classic but boring. Get over it… just because you don’t like the Dad’s politics, don’t rip on the wife and kids’ clothes.

  12. mattdamon

    Why would anyone want to copy the Kennedy’s? Behind the hoople they’re an American embarrassment! Get over them people!

  13. fizzy

    I really didn’t realize that people still dressed little boys in short pants. Every time I’ve seen a little kid dressed up they just had a regular suit but in kid proportions…perhaps that’s why it looks so odd.

  14. Yes. And the saddle shoes. There’s “Sunday best,” and then there’s saddle shoes.

    why would anyone in the year 2005 dress their kids like that? These people should be shot.
