The U.S. Senate got rid of its unofficial dress code, and people are sort of upset about it! But did North Carolina's once-senior senator break the code to conduct official business? We investigate.
When I started at college in the early 2000s a friend was told he didn't get a job because he wasn't wearing socks with his suit at the interview. Fast forward to today and I think the sockless look (or a look with gaudy, colorful socks) is kinda in fashion I think?
Well I often wonder why did I vote for that person. Rather like to know that some of our leadership beat to a bit different drum as do many of us. This story made me feel just a bit better about my vote. In the end character and not appearances make us matter more.
This is all great fun, and I am forever entertained by your writing. That said, I gotta side with Peggy Noonan on this. Representing Pennsylvania in the Senate is a privilege. Demanding to wear a hoodie and shorts to the senate seems awfully self centered and entitled and, as she writes, phony.
Fetterman needs to grow up. Or give the job to someone who takes it seriously.

What is this a hit piece on Republicans? Can we please have serious journalism about things that really matter. The dress code of Senate is fairly unimportant. Let's talk about rising inflation, rising crime in American cities, illegal immigration, the upcoming presidential race, efforts to strengthen the North Carolinian economy.
Michael Lee prides himself on the sockless strategy, too. Many an evening I've pondered whether there are tiny footie socks involved, a lot of foot powder, or if he follows Men's Health magazine guidance to avoid bacterial growth by storing his shoes in the freezer. I shall never know because typically the podiatric quandary spirals into three ice cubes and a ration of Jack Daniels. I say we let the Republican fashion flag fly. Who are we to judge their woke attitude about fungal infection and leg hair? After all, if Zelensky can visit Congress in a t-shirt, shouldn't Republicans be allowed some vogue accommodation to better weather their war on common sense?
