    On CNN last night, Campbell Brown discussed the "sniping...about Sarah Palin’s clothes. Politico.com reports that the Republican National Committee spent more than $150,000 on clothes, hair, and makeup for Palin on the campaign trail.

    "Now, these are not your tax dollars. This is money given by Republican donors to the RNC," Brown said. "But the report questions whether it's legal to use campaign cash for quote,' personal use.’ My issue: there is an incredible double standard here, and we're ignoring a very simple reality. Women are judged based on their appearance far, far more than men. This is a statement of fact. There has been plenty of talk and plenty written about Sarah Palin’s jackets, her hair, her looks. Sound familiar? There was plenty of talk and plenty written about Hillary Clinton’s looks, hair, pantsuits. Compare that to the attention given to Barack Obama’s $1,500 suits or John McCain’s $520 Ferragamo shoes. There is no comparison."

    I completely agree - she's judged by her looks. John McCain is a multi-millionare. He should've used his own money to pay for Palin's wardrobe.

    By the way, Campbell Brown is HOT.

    Funny, when Campbell Brown was ripping the McCain campaign for hiding Palin the Cons were saying she should go back to modeling.

    Now that she's saying what you want to hear she's brilliant :lol:

    she is right of course but the fact remains that according to campaign finance reform passed by McCain it's illegal to purchase clothing from contributions.
