(Newser) – They were hard to miss, really—the pink socks worn by George HW Bush at today's dedication of his son's presidential library. A sartorial slip by the 88-year-old? Nope, loud socks are becoming his signature style, reports Today.com, which notes that he busted out red-white-and-blue ones earlier this month. At this point, it's a safe bet he'll be wearing a similar pair whenever he's in public, notes this story in the Houston Chronicle from last year. And visitors to his office in Houston might well leave with a bright pair instead of, say, cuff links. Twitchy rounds up some of the tweets praising today's choice.

If you can't be eccentric when you are old, when can you be? I like it.

The man has been the most powerful man on the planet. The fact that John Johnson can't find anything better to write about than Bush's socks, its obvious he will never amount to ANYTHING !!!!!
