Sarah Palin’s $150K Wardrobe Upsetting But Legal

We are so jealous of her.

Buying Sarah Palin a $150K wardrobe on the fly was perhaps not the McCain campaign’s best move. Because now Palin is mired in all these “but what does this mean for the campaign?” issues. Sure, she needed an upgrade from her fleeces and secondhand Escada jackets, but how is she supposed to relate to the regular folks when she’s wearing Valentino? As Joy Behar said on The View yesterday, “I don’t think Joe the Plumber wears Manolo Blahniks.” No, but Janet the Plumber might. Kidding!

And then there are the donors. Politico even talked to an “irate” one:

“I’m not one who says a candidate shouldn’t wear fine clothes,” he added. “I’d just like to think they were successful enough in the private sector to have afforded their wardrobe with their own money, not the party’s or the campaign’s, which is really our money as contributors.”
