The Democrat's Own Wardrobe Problem

DOH! The Dems should have checked the receipts of Hillary's pantsuits before trying to rundown Sarah Palin over what the RNC spent on hers. It turns out those monochrome pantsuits Hillary loves to flaunt cost over $6,350 a piece!

That would make the above photo worth more than $25,000. $25,000 for four friggin' pantsuits!

Sure makes Sarah Palin's entire wardrobe and makeup costs of $150,000 seem like a bargain, especially since Palin will be auctioning off the clothes she's worn on the campaign trail to benefit charity.

You can add another $76,000, bringing the total to over $100,000, to Hillary's wardrobe costs for these additional twelve colorful pantsuits.

From the LA times article

The Los Angeles Times reported earlier this year that Senator Clinton’s custom made pantsuits from Forest were worth about $6,350 a piece retail. Clinton’s spokespeople did not respond to requests for comment.

notice the use of the works "retail".
It has been a few years since I worked retail clothing, but the sentence suggests "retail" was not paid. And while it is more than I would pay, designer products are way marked up more than "stock". Levis vs Polo for instance. So while we can say Hillary bought high dollar threads, we don't know anywhere near what she paid for them - if anything at all.

It's not that the news media 'hates MCcain" its that reasonable people like the news edia realizes he's jut not ready for prime time.

What do you want? IF there was an election between legalizing heroin or making it illegal, you'd expect the media to give equal time to those who advocate legalizing heroin?


The problem is this: McCain has come out for the rich and Obama has come out for the middle class masses? So you expect the media to spend equal time advocating for the top 1 percent who makes ka=zillions of dollars per year as a CEO?

Not going to happen. but you're going to diss the media for not giving equal time in fairness to the obscenely RICH?

Get real!

Obama for the middle-class? What a joke.

He just lowered his rich threshold to $200,000 a year. He wants to raise capitalgains, if you have investments, retirement, etc. That's a tax increase.

He wants to let Bush's tak cuts (child credits, etc.) expire. That will raise every middle class citizen's taxes.

Read his policies and not his talking points.

Forget taxes, it has come out he also wants to shred the constitution. The guy is a socialist and will have everything he needs to suspend the constitution and embrace facism.
