Lipstick On A Pig

So the stories about Sarah Palin just won't let up.  Turns out $150,000 was only the first installment of what it took to get her ready for prime time.  Well.  At least PHYSICALLY ready for prime time. 

From Bloomberg:

John McCain's campaign spent more than $95,000 on hair and makeup services for vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin in the final weeks of the campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Talk about throwing good money after bad.

And the first shopping spree wasn't enough:

Separately, the Republican National Committee - which caused a ruckus when it spent more than $150,000 to clothe Palin and her family in September - spent about $23,000 in the final weeks at Macy's, Neiman Marcus and other stores for "campaign accessories."

I haven't spent that much on clothes in my life.  Of course I am not trying to go from backwoods GILF hockey mom to a heartbeat away from the presidency.  Goshdarnit!

I also can't see Russia from my house. 

Thank God America.  All I can say is THANK GOD you did the right thing!
