White socks and black shoes?

Regarding the Cheney-as-Pats-fan kerfuffle, Kevin Drum has this to say:
This is not the biggest deal in the world, but it sure is peculiar —
especially since, as the bottom picture from a ceremony today shows, Cheney had
a dark overcoat with him.

That's more-or-less the correct response, and reflects the tone of most bloggers I've read (despite the weirdly overblown frothing on some right wing sites about "elitist condescension"). It's certainly not a big deal, but.....huh? I can say for a fact that my mom would've killed me if I'd dressed like that in a similar setting.
