$150G From GOP For Fashions For Palins?

(CBS) Since she's been on the campaign trail, Sarah Palin has received a lot of attention over her wardrobe, her hair, even her glasses.

Now, Politico.com is reporting the Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 on clothes and accessories for Palin and her family.

150K is alot but I am sure the Dems are spending a lot on useless things as well. Also being a women running for office, makes you a target and people jump on things really quickly. Therefore spending on clothes should be higher for women seeking office.

A good pants-suit costs a lot of money.

Glade you brought this up.

Senator Hillary Clinton is the biggest porker of the three. 281 earmarks worth $296 million. Senator Obama is next. 53 earmarks worth $97 million. Senator John McCain has never requested an earmark.”

Politico told CBS News it hasn't been able to identify any similar expenditures on the Democratic side.
150k on clothes though? Really?

I agree it is a bit outlandish, but I don't know if Clinton was on the ticket, the Dems would not be spending as much.

Also I never said Dems would be spending as much on clothing, but on other pointless things as well.

Re: $150G From GOP For Fashions For Palins?

What's the big deal? Both sides do it, the article said as much. It didn't have a bill total for Hillary but mentioned that she would get $2500 haircuts. These people are loaded....Hillary, Bush, Gore, John Kerry, McCain. Does anyone honestly think these politicians live like you and I? Come on.

Not saying it might not be the best thing to be doing but hey both sides do it.

Yupp like I said, if we want to get on Obama, I think he has made a LOT of money just selling books. he has been making millions every year, mostly from book sales.

Re: $150G From GOP For Fashions For Palins?

The one for the building was a seperate bill which was not stuck in on the back pages of another bill. So congree has to vote on that straight up and I'm not sure if thats really considered pork spending. The other is for a buffer zone around a Air Base and I just don't know if thats considered port in a defense spending bill. We have that issue here in our area because the navy jets practice right over peoples homes. So from my perspective its a defense issue.

So that's what those contribution requests I get every other day are for

However it's pretty convenient Politico couldn't find any numbers on what's been spent on the dems side. I'm sure Hillary, Kerry and Edwards were running up the same or more excessive bills.

Heck no I went right to the Obama web site for one. These are list of pork he has stuck into bills and he is proud of asking congress for over 900 million for his pet projects.Obama Announces FY08 Federal Funding Requests | U.S. Senator Barack Obama

Or maybe you could look at fact check to read about his 3 million for an overhead projector. FactCheck.org: Did Obama request a $3 million 'overhead projector,' as McCain claimed?

Or how about this site were they show that for every working day (Monday-Friday) Obama has been in ofice has asked for an average of a million dollars on pork spending. PolitiFact | McCain's got Obama over a pork barrel

But polls show that independents have more confidence in Obama and the economy :frusty:

Funny how they point out 150g that was spent with non taxpayer money but don't have a problem with all the pork Obama has asked for. A million dollars for every working day he has been in office.
