Astute bloggers (see link below) and radio commentators (such as Stephanie Miller) are recalling that Marcus Bachmann, who Jon Stewart calls "an Izod shirt away from being the gay character on "Modern Family", has acted as fashion stylist for his wife, Michele, who is running for President.
Here is the original 2006 source (link below) in which we learn more. The article starts by giving examples of how Ms. Bachmann doesn't really put much time into shopping yet ends up with feminine and fetching looks. Reading further, it's easy to see who "wears the pants" in the family.
Shopping help comes from another quarter, as well. Before Vice President Dick Cheney's visit this
past summer, Bachmann's husband, Marcus, hit the stores -- "he's got a good sense of style" -- and came home with "a sleek, simple hourglass dress with a yoke collar in winter white." He even bought a matching coat and shoes. "I just slipped it on."
"I grew up in a very male-dominated home with three brothers and a dad who was a real outdoorsman," she said. It was only while attending law school that she became more clothes-conscious. Then came the '90s, "when I was pregnant with one child or another," she said. "I wasn't particularly stylish then."
