Are you following this? Apparently, Sarah Palin's campaign wardrobe cost around $150,000 and was funded by the Republican National Committee (slideshow of latest wardrobe here, story here). The Committee reports that the duds are being donated to charity when the campaign is over.
1) Who cares! Seriously, if the RNC wants to use their dollars to fund their "spokesperson" go ahead. She looks great, I doubt if wearing a parka or a hockey jersey would look as good.
2) So she shopped at Saks and Neiman Marcus, so what? Ok, like Mrs. Palin would be rockin' a $49.99 special from Kohl's by Daisy Fuentes or Apt. 9. I don't think so. Can you imagine the secret service chatter? "We're in Juniors, no, jewelery, men's, hoisery...man all the departments run together!"
3) She would be under so much fire if she didn't look perfect, and let's face it, she looks perfect.
4) What if she and Johnny Boy get elected? Then do the clothes get donated? Then what?
Partisianship aside, Sarah Palin, I commend you on your wardrobe. You have perfected the look that is both professional and feminine. God bless America.
