It was bad enough that the Republicans bought Sarah Palin one hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth of clothes to wear on the campaign trail, while telling everyone that she’s just a humble hockey mom who’s just like you and me. At the same time, Sarah Palin’s hair and makeup stylist was paid more by the campaign than a top McCain policy advisor.
What adds insult to injury is that Sarah Palin doesn’t think that 150,000 of new clothes are enough for her. This week, just as the story about her use of donors’ money to buy clothes for herself was breaking, Sarah Palin sent an assistant out to buy yet another new suit for Palin to wear at a campaign rally.
$150,000 of new clothes, and Sarah Palin can’t find anything to wear? It looks like Sarah Palin has about as much understanding of the economic difficulties of ordinary people as Imelda Marcos did when she bought her shoes.
