If this stuff keeps up - faked travel expenses, hastily revised records, awful news interviews, and - NOW - $150,000 to dress "real" for the 'Real America," Sarah Palin will drive the McCain campaign into the mid-30's (percentage-wise) and help the Democrats gain 35 House seats and a Lieberman-proof 61 Senate seats.
The Republican National Committee appears to have 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.
