Since her selection as John McCain's running mate, the Republican National Committee spent more than $150,000 on clothing and make-up for Gov. Sarah Palin, her husband, and even her infant son,(the son that is always passed from hand to hand). Palin has received the equivalent of $2,500 in clothes per day from places such as Saks Fifth Avenue (where RNC expenditures totaled nearly $50,000) and Neiman Marcus (where the governor had a $75,000 spree)
This is the week where the Republican ticket is trying to highlight its connection to the working class. I mean Joe the Plumber (the tax evading, contracted apprentice) was used (and still being used) as a showpiece for the working class.
Palin's fashion budget for several weeks was more than four times the median salary of an American plumber ($37,514). To put it another way: Palin received more valuable clothes in one month than the average American household spends on clothes in 80 years. A Democrat put it in even blunter terms: her clothes were the cost of health care for 15 or so people.
Okay, I really don't have a problem with her spending (her own money) to look good. I mean folks gotta realize, after a hard day of Moose hunting and Bear trapping, a woman has still gotta feel like a woman. So I present to you the PALIN FAMILY RUNWAY TOUR. (coming to a town near you).
