Sarah "I'm Just a Hockey Mom" Palin Spends $150,000 on Clothing and Accessories this Month Alone!

This just in from the New York Daily News.

Turns out that the same Sarah Palin who wants us to believe that she's just a normal down home, struggle-to-make-ends-meet, working class, hockey mom, Joe Six-Pack-loving kind of gal, has been on a clothes shopping spree since she was chosen as the VP candidate. And the Republican National Committee has been picking up the tab. All $150,000 of it!

for clothing and accessories for herself and her family. In one month. From some of the ritziest stores in America. The kind that Joe the Plumber would never shop at.

But she feels your pain, so that's OK. Whatever this woman wants, get it for her. She feels your pain.


Here's the story from the New York Daily News (not that liberal rag from the same city):

WASHINGTON - Lipstick isn't the only difference between America's top hockey mom and a pit bull.

Sarah Palin also has a spectacular new wardrobe, and Republican campaign donors picked up the breathtaking tab.

The Republican National Committee spent $150,000 on clothing and accessories for the vice presidential candidate and her family since early September, according to a report by the Politico Web site.

At Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Manhattan and St. Louis, the RNC paid for $49,425.74 in Palin apparel, the report said, citing financial disclosure records.

There also was a $75,062.63 shopping spree at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, where the Palins stayed during the Republican National Convention last month; $9.447.71 at Macy's in Minneapolis; and $5,102.71 at Bloomingdale's in New York.

That much cash can buy a closet full of the pumps, hot red leather jackets and form-fitting business suits for the Alaska governor to wear on the stump

Another $4,716.49 on hair and makeup came from the GOP while wooing "Joe Six-Pack" to vote for John McCain, the records showed. And more than $5,000 went to a men's store and a baby clothing store.
