The Sarah Palin Files, Pt. 59

The self-parody continues.

In this episode, all around "woman-of-the-people" and self-described "hockey mom" is revealed to have been the subject of some rather un-blue collar-like clothing expenditures, the likes of which would make the producers of TLC's What Not To Wear blush:

The Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

OK, Republicans - keep those lectures about "Real America" coming!
