The political news cycle in the state of South Carolina has been known to ebb and flow based on our founding editor’s legendary shoe fetish. And if you think that’s hyperbole, ask those “in the know” at the S.C. State House …

Seriously … a well-placed pair of heels can make or break a career around here, all part of our commitment to “Unfair, Imbalanced” journalism.

Anyway, it’s nice to see we aren’t the only ones so inclined. The Washington Post – which you’d think wouldn’t indulge such a fetish – ran an item over the Memorial Day weekend on White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, who according to the paper “wears Manolo Blahniks and Christian Louboutins into the Oval Office.”

“One of Ruemmler’s pairs has a jeweled paisley pattern; another is black and strappy,” the story notes. “We tried to get a photo from the White House showing one of these exceptional pairs; instead we got (a) shot of her in a senior staff meeting with the president, revealing a conventional pair of heels.”

Here’s that pic …

Hmmmmm …

No offense to Ruemmler, but she’s gonna have to step up her game on the shoe pic front (pardon the foot pun) if she expects any love from us on behalf of her boss, embattled U.S. President Barack Obama.

Which reminds us, here’s our founding editor’s email address …

Kidding …

No matter how hot Ruemmler’s kicks allegedly are, she’s facing serious career problems. Specifically, she’s been accused of “sequestering” Obama and members of his senior staff from the scandalous actions of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

She’s also been mentioned in connection with the Benghazi scandal, in which Obama’s State Department misled Congress and the American people regarding the nature of an attack against an American diplomatic outpost that left four people (including a U.S. ambassador) dead.

So … to all the Feminazis bitching at the Post over its “sexist” coverage of Ruemmler’s footwear, save your angst.

We suspect it won’t be what she winds up being famous for …
