There is a new redneck diva in town:
Gov. Sarah Palin’s traveling makeup artist was paid $68,400 and her hair stylist received more than $42,000 for roughly two months of work, according to a new campaign finance report filed with the Federal Election Commission.***
Republican officials said this week that additional clothing charges would appear on the Republican National Committee’s campaign finance report totaling less than $30,000. But the committee’s report, which was due at midnight on Thursday, was not yet available as of late evening.
So they spent $180k on clothing for her highness- even though she is just like you and me, a commoner from Alaska. I know, I know, Republicans- John Edwards got an expensive haircut.
Someone could make a very interesting man on the street interview videotaping Republican donors and asking them if they think, in light of the election results, this was money well spent. A quarter million to dress up the VP, and no GOTV or ground game. Weird priorities, indeed.
