    Have you been hearing what is being reported on the news this morning on what sarah palin spent at nieman marcus and saks 5th avenue on her new clothes for herself and kids that the RNC funded out of campaign funds?

    that's 80 years worth of the average Joe family of 4 spends on clothes in america!

    and repubs posted a lie regarding michelle ordering 2 lobsters at the waldorf and bitch and moaned about that kind of exhorbanent spending????

    and then there's john edwards $400 haircut too...

    sheesh!

    what do ye say on this tidbit of facts regarding candidate vp palin and what will it do to this election? anger gop supporters on the waste of campaign funds, show that palin ain't NO EVERY DAY JOE PLUMBER?

    So basically the Cons try to manipulate the rural poor by lying about the Democrats while they are truly the ones who waste millions of dollars on themselves? Is that the jist of it? Shocking!!!

    So Cons, what you guys gonna try and pull now about Obama cause everything you've trued to use has backfired?

    mccain accepted public funding and palin loves pork barreling spending as long as it benefits here... anyone willing to vote for this woman needs to open their eyes..the choice of palin as vp...has tossed me pretty much into the obama camp. she is a total wreck waiting to happen.

    how in the hell could she spend 5 k on make up and hair for one month and still look like shit warmed over?????

    well, i don't believe the republicans that posted the thread or posts on the michelle lobster thing knew it was an outright lie, they did seem truely upset that the obama's spent money or the dnc spent money on things like lobster when people were so needy in the usa...they should have donated that exorbanent expense on charity....

    this is why i am asking what they think about this....?

    strolling, i don't think there is anything wrong with taking the public election money....obama SHOULD HAVE stuck with his WORD on this, and done the same....it keeps elections cleaner imho.

    I remember when I had a Bergdof-Goodman charge account.

    How I used to enjoy that drink at Harry's after shopping in the Central Park South neighbohood.

    Those were the days, folks.

    So Palin spend a lot of money on clothing, ya' say?

    I'm sure it was all perfectly legal.

    The upper class and their servants can always find some legal way to get someone else pay for their indulgences.

    I'm curious where the outrage is from the Cons on this board at this gross elite behavior?

    It's one thing to treat yourself to a nice dinner that might've cost upwards of $400 (which Michelle didn't even do) and it's quite another to spend $150,000 on clothing for yourself and your children in order to present a certain image.

    The outrage over the lobster and caviar was ridiculous. If they aren't hypocrites they will condemn this wasteful spending and be equally outraged against their own party.

    Small town clothes weren't good enough for her, I guess. I hope she didn't buy these clothes in an anti-American part of the country.

    :lol:
