And by pals around, I mean wears them around her neck. I can’t help but wonder if this was part of the $150,000 the RNC (AKA those who donated to the RNC–don’t you feel hoodwinked?) paid for.
The main point of this post was to point out how clueless Palin is. I mean, the woman is legit wearing a scarf that screams vote Democratic. (Where can I get me one of those?!) Buuuut since I have your attention, let’s talk about that $150,000.
So much for being a small town hockey mom, eh? That’s probably twice as much, if not more, than Joe the fake plumber makes in a year. That’s more than a college education. That’s health care for a small business. That’s a ton of money to spend on clothes.
So I think the argument of Republicans being fiscally conservative is now thrown out the window. Because, oh girl, some of those clothes…I could have gotten at Forever21 for twenty bucks. And if I wanted to go “upscale”, I could still find them at Macy’s. On sale. Those clothes are pretty basic. So we all know what the Republicans and Sarah Palin choose to do with their money. They are not bargain shoppers. I mean, look at the national debt.
What would you do with $150,000? Where do your priorities lie?
How dare she talk about relating to Americans struggling to pay their bills and get their kids through school. How dare she? Oh doggone it, you betcha that Joe Six Pack doesn’t go on shopping sprees with the RNC’s plastic.
UPDATED: From Politico, here is Johnny’s defense of the $150,000.
“She needed clothes at the time,” McCain told a group of Florida reporters.
OUCH. Baby girl didn’t even break a thousand.
Sorry for ranting a bit. I’m all fired up.
