If you're running for the vice-presidency of the US, but are too stupid to understand (or bother finding out) what the job entails, you'd better at least look good in front of the cameras. Sarah Palin understands this - if nothing else. So lest the common American think they can be like her - or dress like her, think again. Joe the Plumber will need to raise his rates if he wants to be able to spend $150K on his wardrobe, as it was revealed Palin has done with the support of the Republican campaign.
The shopping spree included two trips to Neiman Marcus, in which she spent half that money. How the hell do you spend $75K in just two shopping trips on clothing? I couldn't do that if I tried.
Defending the criticism, MacCain/Palin spokesperson Tracey Schmitt gives us the quote of the day: "It was always the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign."
Charity? Such as Sally Ann, or Goodwill? Well, I feel, oh, so much better. Because there's a lucky homeless woman who can really use a pair of Manolo Blahniks, especially with winter just around the corner.
