Gov. Sarah Palin's $150,000 Wardrobe
I have no problem with anybody upgrading their appearance, but when one does it at the expense of tax payer dollars while campaigning they're for the Walmart shoppers and they're shopping at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, strikes me as hypocritical. What really pisses me off is the way they tried to clean it up, stating the clothes will be donated to charity. Most McCain-Palin donors thought they were donating so the campaign could advertise and have money to pay for their bus and air travel. All this talk about the clothes will be donated to charity, what if I was pro-life and somehow the donated clothes end up benefiting a pro-choice organization? I believe the majority of us know how to donate our money to a charitable organization, we don't need the McCain-Palin campaign to do it for us. I'll be willing to bet 'Joe The Plumber' have never shopped at Neiman Marcus or Saks Fifth Avenue. As a matter of fact Gov. Palin said, she's more comfortable in hunting and construction clothes. The only thing this proves is the McCain-Palin campaign will say one thing to their donors and supporters, and do the opposite.
