SHOEGAZI: Truthers Think Hillary Planned the Shoe-Throwing Incident

Last Thursday, a Hillary Clinton speech was interrupted by an airborne shoe hoisted by a Alison Michelle Ernst, a woman with a documented history of erratic behavior.

It looks like a SNL spoof, but these shoes with hidden two-inch lifts are legitimately produced and sold. And the ad — obviously aimed at preteen and teen girls — is so creepy-sexual and ridiculous.… » 2/26/13 2:30pm 2/26/13 2:30pm
