The Scientific Activist

Today we learned that the Republican Party spent an almost unfathomable $150,000 in the month of September alone on clothes and makeup for Sarah “Joe Sixpack” Palin. This is a breathtaking figure, and the irony is certainly delicious. However, I can’t escape the feeling that something here is still missing.

Now, if only I could find some sort of aphorism to really get at the heart of this situation….

    They should have spent $150,000 on tutoring instead of a new wardrobe. Because nothing says “I’m not part of the Washington Elite” like a $75,000 Neiman Marcus shopping spree. And anyway, she may look cute, but she sounds really stupid.

    But then again, with 2 weeks to go, I guess it’s easier to make her over than to smarten her up.

    What’s strange about the $150,000 for clothing (Palin never did the shopping) is that the media will never tell the public about the hundreds of thousands of dollars Obama and his family have spent on clothing and vacations. It is obvious to all that the media has been controlled by the Democrats and the Obama campaign. But I really don’t think it will matter who is elected. You have Obama the socialist or McCain the globalist. Either way it will destroy America in the end.

    Mia, I agree with you, but I think a leader should look clean and elegant with their clothes.

    Why do people hate Palin so much, I think this is out of line

    This is big money right.
    About the $150,000 for accouterment (Palin never did the shopping) is that the media will never acquaint the accessible about the hundreds of bags of dollars Obama and his ancestors accept spent on accouterment and vacations. It is accessible to all that the media has been controlled by the Democrats and the Obama campaign.
