Robert Gibbs Honors Gordon Brown With Purple Tie

Okay, so it hasn't been confirmed, but we do find it rather interesting that Press Secretary Robert Gibbs chose today of all days to trade in his usual pink or patterned tie for violet purple. Purple just so happens to be Gordon Brown's tie color of choice, and the British Prime Minister just so happened to be visiting the White House today. Coincidence? We think not...but, of course, it's entirely possible that it is.

Take a look and vote on the not-so-mellow yellow tie Gibbs wore last week.
