Palin's Fashion Faux Pas!

Yesterday, the story broke out on Politico, that the RNC has spent more than $150,000 to dress Sarah Palin and her family.
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.
While clothing shouldn't be an issue, the fact is Palin has been campaigning to the "Wal-Mart" moms and hockey moms. I don't know about you, but I don't know any Wal-Mart mom wearing Valentino or Manolo Blahniks!

Apparently there are some really pissed off Republicans!

In contrast we have the Obamas discussing Barack's frugal shopping habits:

In addition, Barack Obama has been teased about his lack of interest in fashion, and how old his clothes are. Check out his shoes, which have been re-soled repeatedly due to the amount of time he's spent pounding on the Campaign Trail.

Michelle Obama appears on the "View" in a chic, but inexpensive dress from "White House/Black Market". Within days, there was a huge demand for this dress that caught everyone's attention.
