Then It's Back To Long Skirts And North Face?

Cha-ching! After saying they don't talk about money, the RNC released a new and way less good thought on the $150k department store and make up expenditures that were reported post-Palin pick:

"With all of the important issues facing the country right now, it’s remarkable that we’re spending time talking about pantsuits and blouses," said spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt. "It was always the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign."
As Seth and Amy would say, Really?! After the campaign, the empress relinquishes her new clothes and then wears crap again? Barn jackets and denim skirts are what sells in Wasilla!

[Bill] Clinton's $200 haircut doesn't seem so bad anymore, does it?

Ladies of America, if this doesn't convince you that McCain and the RNC are a bunch of pandering dorks, I don't know what will. Sarah Palin wants to be an insider. She's being primped to be an insider. She's been dressed up, made up, set up just to confuse, pander, pacify, and placate. Don't. Buy. It.

And lastly, how rad-tastic is it that, instead of quietly having a donor leave some bags outside Palin's hotel room doors in any given city, Mr. Campaign Finance Reform's pary REPORTS ALL THE CLOTHING PURCHASES? And baby purchases for Trig, too, by the way. You can't expense or deduct for clothing you wear to work (oh that we could) and from what I've read and recall, the FEC (hey, is anyone actually ON that these days?) and finance rules disallow that sort of personal use of campaign donations. Why? Because otherwise people would spend $150k on clothes for their campaign. Hell, I would. Who wouldn't.

But I can tell you who shouldn't.
