Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe bill not really that much

By Griffin · October 23rd, 2008 · 3 Comments

A lot of people are furious over yesterday’s revelation that the McCain campaign spent $150,000 of RNC donor money to clothe and accessorize Sarah Palin and her family in just seven weeks on the campaign trail.  Small donors in particular were upset to learn that that $100 contribution they scraped together and sent to John McCain paid for less than one hour of Palin’s wardrobe expenses.

But when placed in proper perspective, $150,000 for seven weeks of clothes, hair, and makeup really isn’t that much.  Let’s break this down a bit:

– Sarah Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe would only pay for less than half of Cindy McCain’s Republican convention outfit.

– Sarah Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe would only pay for 6 months of John and Cindy McCain’s household servant budget

– Sarah Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe would only pay for John McCain’s 3 foreign cars, but not the 9 other ones.

– Sarah Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe would only pay for 10 months of McCain campaign manager Rick Davis’s Freddie Mac lobbying fees.

– Sarah Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe would only pay for 4 years of the average plumber’s salary.

– Sarah Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe would get a tax cut under Obama’s plan.

POST SCRIPT: Shortly after the news broke, the McCain campaign said that Palin’s new outfits will all be donated to charity.  Because the reason you gave money to the RNC was so our homeless can finally get those $2,500 Valentino jackets they so desperately need.
