First off, I extend my apologies to all you real Americans for the lack of blogging around these parts. And as for you fake Americans, you can blow it out your ass, traitors. Blogger's block has been particularly acute lately, probably on account of how dire Our Nation's prospects look. I'm astounded at how many people hate America, or if the polls are incorrect, how ACORN has been able to rig so many of them -- something to have the FBI investigate, surely. However, glancing at the news this morning, I've been Inspired once again by the policy acumen of Sarah Palin, who's come up with her own fiscal stimulus package -- clothes shopping!
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.Obviously, as a true conservative, I have misgivings about Senator McCain spending $8672.55 on cosmetics, as I think it sends the wrong message to our children. However, it's probably just a bad habit he picked up while he was in prison and away from female companionship, and I'm pretty sure the Bible makes allowances for this sort of deviance if it's done while fighting Communism. However, with Mrs. Palin, it's another story, and if every Christian woman followed Sister Sarah's lead, it's just a matter of time before the economy rebounds from this recession the Clintons set us up for and Christian Glamour is the law of the land. Praise Him!
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.
