Republicans Play Dress-Up with Sarah

Republicans Play Dress-Up with Sarah

Jeanne Cummings of Politico reports that Sarah Palin’s signature wardrobe has apparently been purchased by the Republican National Committee. The bill for late August and September: $150,000.

The RNC’s September statement of expenses includes a $75,062.63 Palin shopping spree at Neiman Marcus and a $4,716.49 bill for hair and makeup.

So much for Mrs. Populist Hockey Mom.
