Main Street

An interesting article popped up on my inbox, via British Vogue of all places. It seems that it cost the Republican party about $150,000 to outfit dear ole' Sarah Palin. The article even breaks it down by store! Let's see, there's $49,425.74 at Saks, $75,062.63 at Neiman Marcus and of course, purchases for lil' Trig at Pacifier, a fancy store for babies in Minneapolis.

So yeah, Sarah Palin! She's just like you and me you guys! Who knew Main Street was so close to 5th Ave?

Oh and yeah, I know that Michelle Obama has been wearing Thakoon on the trail (and man alive! can she rock it), but Michelle isn't going around pretending to be middle class, and hatin' on those east-coast, elitist, liberals while sporting the latest designer duds.

PS. Have you seen this? Amy Poehler rules at life.

aside from her 5th ave excursions, i read today in the post that she has charged over $21,000 to the state of alaska for her daughter's flights and what have you.

"The charges included costs for hotel and commercial flights for three daughters to join Palin to watch their father in a snowmobile race, and a trip to New York, where the governor attended a five-hour conference and stayed with 17-year-old Bristol for five days and four nights in a luxury hotel.

In all, Palin has charged the state $21,012 for her three daughters' 64 one-way and 12 round-trip commercial flights since she took office in December 2006. In some other cases, she has charged the state for hotel rooms for the girls."

i knew about the shopping thing.

now as for that snl skit (i hadn't seen it, thank you for posting), i am surprised to hear myself say that she was a good sport about it. i despise the woman. truly. and this is probably the nicest thing i can and will say about her ... ever.
and holy crap poehler rapping AND pregnant - too fantastic.

I'm not even buying the Palin being a good sport stuff. She'll do anything to win over EVERYONE possible.
