Hey, bitters, Sarah Palin is just like you! Except for the $150,000 Saks and Neiman-Marcus shopping sprees, we mean, and the $4,000 haircut. McCain’s campaign spent this huge pile of cash — more than what all but the richest Americans earn in a whole year — immediately after choosing Palin’s name from a hat filled with all the names of people who were registered Republicans, in America. Who knew she only owned shabby Alaskan tanning-salon outfits! She needed to be properly dressed and accessorized, to create those “starbursts” from the nutsacks of wingnuts.
According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.
The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.
The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.
Jeepers crumpets, that’s more than John Edwards’ $400 haircut and Hillary Clinton’s $3,000 haircuts combined! And good gravy, they dropped $75K at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis? She was only in town for what, two days?
So, first we learn Sarah Palin is a conniving fraud who lured the conservative pundits to the Alaska Governor’s Mansion, because they were on National Review and Weekly Standard cruises that stopped in Juneau. (And of course she doesn’t even live in the Governor’s Mansion, which is why she charges Alaskan taxpayers $17,000 so she can fly home to her trailer in Wasilla every night.) And now we learn that her whole “real America” shtick is as phony as her tan.
Palin is just another Hollywood-East Coast celebrity, appearing on the New York comedy shows and spending an absolute fortune on clothes. Jesus christ, she is five million times worse than Madonna and Kanye West combined.
