Remember the week-long media fixation John Edwards's $400 haircut?
It appears that that's just Democrat chump change.
The Republican National Committee(RNC)just announced that it spent $49 THOUSAND at Saks Fifth Avenue, $75 THOUSAND at Neiman Marcus, $9 THOUSAND at Macy's, and miscellaneous additional THOUSANDS for wardrobes, accessories, hair, and make-up for the Palins.
The Washington Independent, via Politico, reports that the Republican National Committee appears to have spent $150,000 for clothes, hair and makeup for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her family, following her pick as Sen. John McCain’s running mate.
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.
The records also show nearly $10,000 paid to Macy’s in Minneapolis, nearly $6,000 to Barney’s and Bloomingdale’s, and $295 to Steiniauf and Stroller, a high-end baby store — even little Trig got in on the action.
On the bright side, even if McCain loses the election, the Palins will still look fabulous.
