Like Palin's Clothes?

They should be nice, as the Republican National Committee has spent over $150,000 on her clothes and other such things thing since she was nominated. Wow, plain old hockey moms sure have expensive tastes. One shopping trip alone to Neiman Marcus clocked in at over $75,000. I should be honest and say that I don't think I've ever shopped at Neiman Marcus, but they must have some expensive clothes. Even if an outfit cost $3,000 (which seems outrageous to me), you could still get 25 of them for that price. You could wear a new outfit for pretty much the whole month and never wear the same one twice from just that one shopping trip alone. She also racked up $4700 in hair and makeup bills. Makes the $400 Edwards spent (which caused quite a stir) look like peanuts. A questions has been raised about the legality of all this, so we'll see what comes of it.

hmmmmm . . . you can actually get decent clothes at Neiman-Narcus for a lot less than that. It looks to me like they hired a personal shopper with a blank check to clean up her act. My take is they should have paid for an IQ test and/or charm school before they bothered to dress her up be cause while she looks good, they still can't take her anywhere nice.

The sad truth about Sarah Palin from those who know her best...

I like to see the media go through all of receipts of any of the libs - and they probably find the same sort of thing - you turn a blind eye to that, but act so shocked when it happens to a conservative.

You can go through the receipts yourself if you'd like. It's not like they went through Palin's garbage. They just looked at the campaign reports. Conservatives are free to do that as well, since the documents are available to the public. If the Obama campaign did the same thing, since the legality of it was being questioned, then conservatives have a right to complain as well. But don't try to excuse by just declaring that everybody does it. You need to show it as well.
