RNC spends $150,000 on Palin's Clothes

Damn!!! Girlfriend was that, umm, frumpy that the RNC had to fork over Neiman-Marcus bucks?

The Republican National Committee appears to have 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.

Damn, and spent almost 5 grand on girlfriend's makeup!!
The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

Politico asked the McCain campaign for comment, explicitly noting the $150,000 in expenses for department store shopping and makeup consultation that were incurred immediately after Palin’s announcement. Pre-September reports do not include similar costs.

Lord have mercy. All that money for clothes and makeup and hairdos???? Most Americans are struggling to make ends meet and have to read this!!!
