I'm not making this up: $150,000 for clothes, hair and makeup for Sarah Palin

As reported here:

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.


Here's what I wanna know. How much have the spent on hair, makeup, and accessories on John and Cindy McCain?

Honestly, the story seriously cracks me up. It just has *so* many incredibly humorous angles. What's your reaction?

What is it about our society which makes a woman's credibility so appearance based? Grrrrrr...

I'm sure that all the candidates are being pripped in excess for this coming election. Especially the women. No big suprise.

Yes, I'd like to know how much has been spent on McCain's clothes. And Obama's. Much more interesting and important than hearing about their policies, don't you think?
