$150k on clothes, makeup, hair – That’s Sarah “hockey mom” Palin for you!
Posted October 24, 2008on:
You’re a Hockey Mom if: “Your life is about Hockey, and also about being a Mom, partner, and woman.” Yes, that’s what Sarah Palin was before this election campaign.
Ever after being chosen as John McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin has experienced the following changes in her life:
1. A taste of limelight – Sarah Palin has literally become an overnight celebrity (I personally think that’s all credit to her extremely intelligent (pun intended) ideas and point of views)
2. The campaign jet!
3. A safe future - She won’t really have to worry about finding another job once Obama is elected. There will be many TV channels willing to use her as THE judge with stupid comments (out of many) on a TV show. Just like you have Simon Cowell being mean to to contestants on X factor for example.
3. A $90,000 wardrobe including a $2500 Valentino outfit, $3000 Louis Vuitton hand bag and $3000 for hair styles and makeup.
A dream for most hockey moms, Sarah Palin’s red jackets don’t come from her home in Alaska, plush hair dos and fancy makeup doesn’t come from her pocket. It’s all coming from the Republican National Committee – The account you republican supporters fill up! Add to this Sarah Palin’s recent shopping sprees at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue worth US Dollars 75 thousand and 50 thousand respectively. Whoooho!! Who remembers the embarrassment John Edwards faced after his 250 dollar haircut? Sorry John, we were wrong, we didn’t know Sarah Palin then!
Guess how much Ms Sarah Palin is provided per week to spend on her wardrobe, makeup and hair dos?
A whopping 37 thousand 5 hundred dollars per week.
Yes, Mr McCain, that’s more than an average plumber’s yearly salary!
If you’re as annoyed as me on this utterly useless spending, then there’s some relief – John Mccain’s spokesperson Tracey Schmitt said:
With all of the important issues facing the country right now, it is remarkable that we are spending time talking about pantsuits and blouses. It was always the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign.
Hope that makes all of us feel better.
And if you thought that’s all, here’s some rule breaking. Sarah Palin has been exposed on various occasions spending campaign money on her son Trig’s baby ware. This amount totals many thousand pounds.
Campaign rules #1 – Use of campaign funds NOT ALLOWED for personal use!
Are we just going to stand here and do nothing about it? Are we still going to vote Mccain despite all this law breaking and utter waste of our money? (haha).. well, who cares.. When it’s Sarah Palin in question, there’s bound to be stupidity!
