The Politico had the following story this evening:

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.

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

Politico asked the McCain campaign for comment, explicitly noting the $150,000 in expenses for department store shopping and makeup consultation that were incurred immediately after Palin’s announcement. Pre-September reports do not include similar costs.

Spokeswoman Maria Comella declined to answer specific questions about the expenditures, including whether it was necessary to spend that much and whether it amounted to one early investment in Palin or if shopping for the vice presidential nominee was ongoing.

And here is what I have to say. HOW DARE YOU!

You are full of Moose Poo!

Srsly now.. I contribute yearly to a worthy cause called the Los Angeles Mission, its downtown LA on 5th street where people live in cardboard boxes along the sides of the buildings. The shelter gives some a bed an a hot meal for a night at a time, and each Thanksgiving for the last 71 years they give out a full Turkey Day Meal with all the trimmings to the homeless or needy folks in LA.

The way I figure it, $150,000.00 divided by the cost of a meal $1.86 = 80,645 meals.

Here is some waste we can cut. When we as taxpayers are $700 billion in the hole, why should we spend $300 million dollars to put this kind of brain washing into Iraqui airwaves? This really irks me.

Washington Post Quote: 

“On Aug. 21, the day before bids on the new contract were closed, the solicitation was reissued to replace repeated references to information and psychological operations with the term “media services.” “
