Relating the the "real America"


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.

Remember all the GOP bleating about $400 haircuts? Oh, how the right-wing blogs liked to go on and on about it.

Of course, as outrageous as $4,700 plus in make up is for Nanook of the North, she's economizing compared to the Maverick.

For while, the wealth of "real" Americans and the rest of us poseurs was shrinking exponentially, McCain was pimping himself out big time.
