Last time we checked in with brilliant political thinker and former assistant US Attorney Andy McCarthy, he was writing Obama/Ahmadinejad slashfic. Today he is writing about fashion!

Derb, I've noticed that President Obama frequently forgoes the necktie - lately, even in public appearances. That reminded me - I have no idea why - that the Iranian regime has shunned the necktie ever since Khomeini pronounced it a symbol of Western decadence.

This is just like when JFK and Khrushchev stopped wearing hats.
