Sarah Palin Doesn’t Shop at Wal*mart Anymore.
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.
What’s this then? While the American economy is cratering, the "Hockey Mom Who’s Just Like You, Doncha Know" is at Neiman Marcus, dropping $75K of RNC donors’ hard-earned money on red leather numbers, fuck-me pumps, and underwear for the First Dude.
I guess that’s why she’s never photographed holding Trig — who wants spit-up on her $1,000 St. John suit?
And she still hasn’t paid back Alaska for those little junkets she took with the girls.
Fiscal responsibility – now available in petites and plus sizes.
