Palin $150K Wardrobe Expense?


I could not believe my eyes when I first saw this story over at Politico. The RNC has shelled out $150,000 to dress Sarah Palin since September. Granted she has to look good for the cameras, all the reporters and the in depth interviews but isn’t this a little bit over the top? Excuse me for saying this but there is not one person I know that has ever even come close to this kind of shopping trip and McCain and Palin dares to call we Liberals elitists?

Trust me on this one, Sarah Palin was not buying off the rack items at Walmart to run up this kind of bill. And I don’t think you can run up that kind of expense by buying items from the clearance section as most of us Liberal Communists and Socialists have to do when we shop for clothes.

Check out what Jeanne Cummings has to say over at Politico…

RNC shells out $150K for Palin fashion
By JEANNE CUMMINGS 10/22/08 6:50 AM EDT


The Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

The cash expenditures immediately raised questions among campaign finance experts about their legality under the Federal Election Commission's long-standing advisory opinions on using campaign cash to purchase items for personal use.

When the press went nuts over John Edwards $400 haircut I was right there with them on that issue. Like most of us “Communists and Socialist“, we pay a local barber or hairstylist $12 bucks and throw a buck or two in for a tip. Apparently, Governor Palin needs more hair products and makeup than all the Miss America pageants have ever used to date. Sarah Palin‘s $4,716 worth of hair and makeup is ten times the insult of John Edwards hair care needs. Maybe Governor Palin forgot her coupon at home? She could have probably cut the expense by a dollar or two.

I can’t wait to see how the McCain - Palin team is going to spin this so it’s justifiable. If this is what they call being Conservative then I honestly don’t think we want them in charge of our federal budget.
