Palin’s Costly Wardrobe, Revisited [Dan Collins]
Via Hot Air headlines comes this report stating that the RNC will soon disclose how much it spent on Palin’s clothes and accessories, and that it’s far less than the amount–$150k–reported. Of course, whatever it amounts to, it’s also far less than what Obama paid for his Dork Temple.
That’s not interesting, but the comments reveal what kind of people make this their business to know:
Uh. . . at least some of the clothes she wore are still in her own possession, she wore them at the RGA, for her greta “interview” and on the stump for draft dodger saxby. Maybe that’s becasue “the campaign” is still going on, and will be until 2012.

They could have bought a house for as much money as they spent to clothe Sarah Palin for 4 weeks. This is excessive by any standards.

But but but… all the clothes have NOT been returned as Princess Sarah was wearing one of the outfits in question this week while campaigning for Saxby. And that was did not have anything to do with the RNC or the McCain campaign.
Clearly, Sarah is lying again and hasn’t returned the clothes that are to be “dispersed” to charity.

Funny that I have only read one article on the ‘money’ spent by liberal democrats on clothes for candidates, and female candidates spent on themselves. There were several of them and they haven’t turned in the clothes or reinbursed the campaign funds. The more the retarded liberals bitch the more truth comes out on their slimey ways. I remember a ‘personal’ trip to Hawaii on the campaign plane by the ‘chosen one’. How much did that cost the idiots supporting him? They’ll have a hard time gathering up the massive amount of jet fuel he consumed. But he did accomplish something, he visited his white grandma and she died a few days later. ‘Connection’, since she knew the truth about his birth?, And he couldn’t be bothered to attend her funeral.

Can we safely assume that the RNC purchased $100,000 worth of white shirts and green ties for John McCain’s use during the campaign, and plans to donate those to the Salvation Army also?

So glad the hillbilly nutcase Neiman-Marxist was sent back to Alaska. Hope she stays there and keeps herself entertained by looking at Russia.

Who cares? Can’t we focus on something more interesting then who bought what for Sarah Palin?

I can’t believe that anyone would begrudge spendin’ $330,000 on clothes and accessories on Sarah IMELDA Palin. Was she supposed to look like a bag lady, for Pete’s sake?
There was another $20,000 at least on clothes for Todd, including that absolute necessity of any campaign, pairs of silk undershorts.
Sarah will be givin’ them back, at the same time Senator Ted Stevens gives back that massage chair he was “loaned” in 2001.
Except for her undies. The thrifty governor will be sellin’ them on eBay!

You’re mistaken about a few things in your comments – first of all, the private family only funeral for President-Elect Obama’s grandmother Madelyn Dunham, hasn’t been held yet. The event you are referencing was a memorial service held by Mrs. Dunham’s former co-workers and friends. Which none of Mrs. Dunham’s family attended.
Secondly, as for President-Elect Obama’s use of the campaign plane to visit his then dying grandmother – the costs related to that trip were paid for by private donors. No campaign funds were used.
Thirdly, an in-depth look at the financial records for the various campaigns has not revealed any other instance EXCEPT for the McCain campaign where ANY campaign funds were used to clothe a candidate OR their family. Everyone else it would appear, used THEIR OWN money to purchase clothes, accessories, shoes, etc. The ONLY candidate and their family which had clothes bought for them using campaign funds was SARAH PALIN AND HER FAMILY!
But hey, why let the facts and the truth get in the way of your deluded rantings.

They didn’t mention it was to the “Sarah Palin Charity.”
Cinderella has to dress for the ball, you know.

Why don’t we hear about Nancy Pelosi’s expenses?
Her own private jet to go to Washington.
Why can’t she fly commercial like they want the CEO’s of the car companys (that actually produce income for the nation) to do.
Dems really are stupid.

Nancy Pelosi is an extremely wealthy woman who has a lot of her own money (and that of her rich husband) to spend as she wishes. She is NOT ripping off campaign donors for her designer duds, and other expenses, she pays for them herself. Last I knew, rightwingers want the wealthy left alone to spend their money as they deem appropriate. But maybe that doesn’t extend to non Repubs, eh Robert??! You apparently resent the fact that Pelosi is rich. Get over it.

This woman’s ability to look at the camera and lie without blinkin’ an eye is her strongest asset.

Miss Piggy is just another right-wing Republican sleazebag exploiting the American people for personal gain and self-gratification.
Miss Piggy lost the election for John McCain because American voters saw that she is a weak-minded, fundamentalist wacko.
Miss Piggy never earned as much in her life as she was able to pocket in clothes, accessories and goodies from the RNC; she behaved like a pig at the trough.
You can put $30k in accessories, $150k in clothes, a fake tan, and lipstick on Miss Piggy, but she is still Miss Piggy.
Miss Piggy should divorce her fleabag husband and marry Joe the Fake Plumber.
