This is what the GOP does with donors' money


The Republican National Committee has 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.

Remember when the right-wingers were all freaking out over $400 haircuts?

When they point fingers, they are doing the same thing times 10. You can almost guarantee it.

And what's Miss Small-Town-Real-America doing having shopping sprees on 5th Avenue, anyway?

$150,000 - the price of a small house - spent on clothes in a month and a half.

Not bad for someone who's just an average "hockey mom."

In most of Texas - a state rumored to be solidly Republican, but they may be surprised this time - $150K will buy you a pretty big house. Here in Houston, it will buy you 2300 sq. ft. in a good neighborhood.
