Scandal, illicit love affairs, red/white/blue ensembles—if that doesn’t smell like politics, I don’t know what does.  Kurt dabbles with the idea of rigging the senior class president votes, but decides against it.  Enter Rachel and her inability to count past 4.  She stuffs the boxes with a bazillion more ballots than there are seniors, and is subsequently suspended from school and Sectionals. 

Coach Beiste’s budding love affair with Coach Cooter comes to a screeching halt when Sue gets it into her head that some man candy is the key to winning the election.  It doesn’t work.  Burt Hummel wins!  Meanwhile, Puck offers some horizontal comfort to Shelby, but cray-cray Quinn declares she wants to get preggo with Puck again.  And after some much needed musical support from both glee clubs, Santana finally comes out to her family about her sexuality and her relationship with Brittany—or should I say Madame President? And that’s what you missed on Glee!


Katy might’ve been all about the Extra-Terrestrial, but for the kiddos at McKinley, it’s all about Election Time.  Having lost the lead in West Side Story, Kurt is desperate to add “senior class president” to his NYADA application.  And apparently, nothing says “Vote for Kurt” quite like bouffant hair and a bizarre studded pseudo-bandana.

His outfit to serenade Santana isn’t much better.

Seriously?  It looks like Kurt’s trying to escape from a Snuggie.   And while I can appreciate how put-together Blaine is, his look is a wee bit reminiscent of a barbershop pole.

I think I like him better in casual wear.  You can never go wrong with a mustard cardigan and apart from the bedroom eyes he’s making at Kurt in the last picture, he looks so sporty-chic in this track jacket.

Now, here’s the Kurt I know and love.  The piping on the shirt makes the white pop and I like the collar on the vest.  The belt seems a bit awkward, but I’ll take it over the Snuggie snafu.

Kurt usually looks his best when his outfits are a bit more tailored and refined, but this poncho and jeggings combo does look awfully cozy.  And I don’t know about you, whenever something bums me out, like losing a class election or the lead in the school musical, I like to get into my sweats, too…all that’s missing is a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

As his biggest campaign supporter, Rachel must be totally swamped because she forgot what November in Ohio is like.  You know, cold enough that she could be forgiven for stealing Kurt’s half-turtleneck to stay warm.   At first glance, I thought I liked this dress (it was the pink and I can’t resist a good bow), but after staring at it for another ten seconds, it’s a bit too cutesy and Easter Sunday for me.

I like that she did go for something a bit darker…

…I just wish it were a darker sweater.  Or parka. 

Despite the fact that she’s going to get pneumonia in five minutes, I really like this outfit.  The charcoal color of the dress contrasts nicely with the white detail along the bodice and I love that she’s wearing a red beret to lend some color to the outfit.  But it’s a bit ironic that she’ll wear a hat but not tights…

Oh, thank God, she found a sweater.  Red really is a good color on her, the pattern along the hem gives it a fun retro-feel, and I love how flouncy the skirt is.

With his girlfriend scheming, his step-bro running for senior class president, and his stepfather running for Congress, it’s no wonder Finn doesn’t have time to think about his wardrobe.  So it looks like Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are for blue outfits.

And Tuesdays and Thursdays are for flannel.

And on the other side of the ballot is Brittany and her first lady, Santana.  They’re back in their boring Cheerios uniforms, but after-hours Santana jazzes things up with her edgy-feminine style.  The fitted blazer and printed black dress is a great combo, but what I’m totally digging are her ankle boots.
