We Have a Winner!

sarah-palin-thumb.jpg$400 haircut for John Edwards. Lose! $3,000 haircut for Hillary Clinton. Fail! $520 shoes for John McCain? Bitch, please. $150,000 in clothes, including nearly $5000 in hair and makeup? Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!

We have a winner, folks: Sarah Palin!

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.

Does the McCain campaign deny this? Oh, hell no:

“With all of the important issues facing the country right now, it’s remarkable that we’re spending time talking about pantsuits and blouses,” said spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt. “It was always the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign.”

Christ! The woman spends $150,000 on clothes and make-up in one month, charges the state of Alaska whenever she goes home to sleep, and charges the state $21,000 to take her family on business trips. Not important? If elected Vice President, the woman could spend the entire $700 billion allotted for the bailout on her wardrobe.

Have you any idea how much pageant girls spend on clothes and make-up? They should have seen this coming a LONG time ago. Of course, she's probably just doing this to help Joe Six Pack and Joe the Plumber.

Wouldn't you just love to see the look on her face when she read that statement about the clothes going to charity after the campaign? HuffPo has a slide show on some of her new outfits, including a picture of Piper Palin with her new Louis Vuitton bag (nothing says trashy to me more than an LV bag) and at the end a hilarious photo of her in Wasilla before she got the VP pick dressed like...um...well, a Barbie from Wasilla. Oh and apparently that early 1990s hair comes from the fact that she gets her fashion and "culture" inspiration from Ivana Trump.

My wardrobe could use a $150,000 freshening up. Maybe I should run for Repub. VP...

But all her outfits look the same. I don't get it. Is she like Batman, where she needs backups of a highly advanced suit of armor in case one gets messed up by dogs? Because I'll vote for that. Batman, I mean.

three elle-LOL
I could use $$$ to buy myself a new wardrobe.

I'm so sick of the name Joe!
Save money & use a plunger!

If the clothing is supposed to go to a charitable purpose after the campaign, does that mean the Reps are conceding the election? I mean, if they were to win, wouldn't she still need the wardrode as VP?

That's a really good point, rlr.

In fact, I wish I had thought of it. The good thing is that nothing can stop me from stealing it.

NOTHING.

Bwah ha ha!

I agree with Arr Matey.
Very good point RLR.
I wish I had thought of it too. Bummer.
