Sarah Palin: Putting Lipstick on Pit Bull Costs $150,000

Sarah Palin: Putting Lipstick on Pit Bull Costs $150,000
As early as September 4 we marveled at the dramatic hillbilly transformation of Sarah Palin. Now from Politico we learn that these sorts of full-on makeovers don't come cheaply: the RNC has spent $150,000 "to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family."

Specifically, $75,062.63 from Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, and $49,425.74 from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York. Nothing, apparently, from "real America" retailer Wal-Mart. Macy's (again in very blue Minneapolis) at $9,447.71 is about as populist as she gets.

Meanwhile, in spite of wardrobe cash infusion, Todd Palin still looks like a toolbag.
