RNC Spent $150,000 On Palin's Clothes

The Republican National Committee spent $150,000 on clothing and makeup for Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Included in the expensives are shopping trips to Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a $49,425.74 price tag. $4,716.49 was spent on hair and makeup. The most staggering expense was a $75,062.63 shopping frenzy at Neiman Marcus.

It is no surpise that the McCain campaign has refused to comment.

"The campaign does not comment on strategic decisions regarding how financial resources available to the campaign are spent," campaign spokewoman Maria Comella told Politico.

I'm sure the conservative pundits and bloggers that went after John Edwards's $400 haircut will put this story under equal scrutiny.
