Sarah Palin is the gift that keeps on giving.
The Republicans spent more getting her pretty than they first admitted. Gov. Palin’s traveling makeup artist was paid $68,400 and her hair stylist received more than $42,000 for roughly two months of work, according to a new campaign finance report filed late Thursday with the Federal Election Commission.
That’s a lot of lipstick and stuff. Even for a hockey mom.
The $150,000 clothing tab was also amended. Add another $30,000 to the wardrobe allowance. Two months of clothes, nearly $200,000. Joy.
Palin protests that the clothes will be returned. What? I didn’t know Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus were in the rental business. That’s cheating. It abuses the liberal return policies of several high end retail stores.
And it begs the question: have the clothes been returned?
Meanwhile, thank you, Gov. Palin. This post election period has been difficult for political junkies. It’s comforting to know we can count on you for entertainment.
I can barely wait until 2012.
