GOP Spent 150 THOUSAND Smacks for Sarah Palin's Clothing- Some from Sax Fifth Avenue

22 October 2008 at 9:34:41 AM

You know, I don't really care if the GOP group is the party of elites. If McCain has 8 or 10 or whatever houses and a fleet of cars and is RIcher Than God, Fine. But don't Pee on My Leg And Tell Me It's Raining in fhe form of pretending to be just an Average Joe. He's not.

And the RNC apparently wants to dress Palin up like an expensive little doll in order to fool HER crowd into thinking She's Just An Average Gal Like You and Me.

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. The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

No. I'll tell you what's an average gal. It's me, trying to figure out with the economy in the tank, what I can afford to buy for some winter clothing. I sure can't afford to go to Saks. Or Neiman Marcus. And you know how much my haircut cost last month at the local beauty shop? About 25 bucks and that included the tip. Think I can afford almost $5000 for hair and makeup IN ONE MONTH?

Update: Adding this slideshow from HuffPo that shows the pricey outfits Palin wearing. One of the pics, for example, is her wearing a Valentino jacket priced at 2500 from Saks. And the little precious pic of Piper carrying a Louis Vuitton handbag? check out these prices.

Okay. So that is ELITE. Just Fess up, McCain and Palin. You are ELITISTS. You can afford to put on the dog and Eat Cake. But cut the crap about telling me you're average. I really hate it when I feel insulted by lies.

P.S. Bwahahahah. The money spent for Palin's makeup is still HALF of what the RNC spent for McCain's heh.

P.P.S. Is it possible that some of that money went to dress up others, like Baby Daddy?

P.P.P.S. Guess what. I really DO care that the McCain/Palin bunch are the party of the elitists. Here I am worried about the economy, whether I can afford rising grocery bills (my bill went up over 300 dollars this last month) or should be eating more rice and beans, or when I will be able to get a new pair of shoes (certainly not Neiman Marcus category) , and the RNC is shelling out big bucks on SHILLs. pfffffffffffff.

P.P.P.S. What'd I say about Palin being a dress up doll?

"In our image-based society, the packaging of a candidate requires strategic spending on visuals, from stage makeup to backdrops to podiums at a flattering height -- and yes, costumes. As a result, it's difficult to argue that the RNC's purchase of clothing for Sarah Palin is an inappropriate expenditure on items for personal use, especially if they really do go to charity after the campaign. Still, given that neither party has given its male candidates a wardrobe makeover, the $150,000 spent at Saks and Neimans reinforces the unfortunate impression that Governor Palin is merely the conservatives' favorite dress-up doll."

More-Karl Rove Protege Jeff Larson was her personal shopper.

Okay, and heh, compare this with THRIFTY Michelle!!!!

AND, a week later, McCain and GOP still arguing about whose stupid idea THAT was. And about Palin's mean-spirtiedness.

Palin has taken to blaming the entire ["clothing"] incident – as well as her introduction to the nation – on her “handlers,” presumably meaning Nicolle Wallace ... McCain allies say that Palin allies talked to Fox News commentator Fred Barnes to further throw Wallace under the bus. Barnes yesterday said, “the person who went and bought the clothes and, as I understand it put the clothes on her credit card, went to Saks and Neiman Marcus...the staffer who did that has been a coward” for not coming forward and accepting the blame for the $150,000 shopping spree. Barnes clarified that he was talking about Wallace.

And, Meow, that 150,000 smacks apparenlty wasn't enough money to spend.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's $150,000 shopping spree that has been dominating national news the past few days apparently didn't do enough for her wardrobe.

The day before her Reno campaign stop this week, Palin's assistant stopped in at the Ann Taylor at the Summit Sierra Mall and bought the skirt suit that she wore during to her speech Tuesday at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.

"She bought a short, three-quarter sleeve jacket, a skirt and a couple other items," store manager Suzette Ludden said.
