Do the Gop's let palin dress herself? or is even her clothing style pick and paid for her?

The Republican National Committee appears to have spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

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.

  • I guess I have to answer in the same manner I did to the other anonymous Palin post about costs spent on her behalf: Where's the itemized list for Michelle Obama's wardrobe? Did Jeanne Cummings put together a list for her, too?

  • Maybe Sarah Palin thinks what she has to say ias a little more important than what she's wearing. As long as shes got the strategic places covered, does it matter?

  • Michelle has class?? LOL have you heard some of the dumb things she has said!! They finally had to shut her up and if you notice since some dumb things she has said we haven't heard anything from her in a LONG time. She is the complete opposite of class in my opinion.

  • Who really cares what the Republican National Committee has spent on Sarah Palin's wardrobe. If that is what they want to spend the money on for this campaign then that is their choice. Is this about the money spent on her wardrobe or the amount of money being spent period. Because I believe the the National Democratic Committee has spent way more money on Obama's campaign, since so much more has been raised.

  • Obama has a clothing bill and a hair and makeup bill, just as Biden and Michelle Obama do. To say she would wear her hunting outfit is ludicrous. Every candidate have a wardrobe bill. Some Obama supporters are sounding pretty desperate right about now if this is the best criticism to be made.

    so why spend so much money if what sh ehas to say is more important than what she is wearing? she needs the expensive clothes to make her look half decent. and see if it helps people ignore the absurdities that come out her mouth.
