    This woman is not only costing the GOP votes but apparently she's costing them money too...as in shopping trips to Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.

    This is relevant how?

    Oh thats right, its not.... and you keep repeating the claim that she's costing McCain Votes.... He picked up more votes with her than he would have with any other candidate.

    You no doubt along with your right wing friends made an issue of John Edwards and his $400 haircuts..well that's nothing compared to this. Oh I know, she's just a regular average hockey mom...that spends 150k a month on clothes and hair.

    Speculation

    Considering McCain's current position in the polls, she sure hasn't been a positive influence. She's polarized the electorate, energizing Obama supporters and driving former Hillary backers back into the fold. Thanks Sarah!

    If you offer substance, I'll reply in kind.

    Do you see how that works... Mr. Hypocrite and typical Democrat? :rolleyes:

    So Palin is what she is for her entire life, and then she gets some new clothes and now she is a snotty elitist?

    In a world where image is everything, you are surprised that money was spent to enhance her image....

    And the Joe the Plumber comments have long been discredited. It is not about the man, it is the response his question generated.

    I have to say that $150,000 is excessive. Go to Neiman-Marcus or Saks 5th Avenue's sites and see what a good business suit, shoes and a handbag cost. You will find it quite easy to outfit a woman in world-class attire for $2,000 to $3,000 per outfit. Unless they outfitted the entire Palin clan, spending $150,000 is ridiculous.

    Unbelievable isn't it? This is another PR nightmare for the McCain campaign. In one trip alone to Neiman Marcus, $75,062.63 was spent...and this is the average everyday hockey mom looking out for Joe six pack?.....sure.
