Power Line: she used to shoot her clothes, but now the RNC buys them for her:
The last 24 hours have been consumed by a media feeding frenzy over the fact that the Republican National Committee spent approximately $150,000 on clothes and makeup for Sarah Palin and her family. This is being peddled as though it were some kind of scandal. As a threshold matter, one wonders why: it's not as though tax dollars were being wasted. Why is it anyone's business?
It isn't, actually. For what it's worth, the clothes don't belong to Palin, they belong to the RNC, and when the campaign is over they most likely will be auctioned off at a profit. So why are our reporters so obsessed with this pathetic non-story?
Why are they not concerned with how much money Joe Biden spent on his hair-plugs? Why haven't they breathlessly told us how much money Hillary Clinton's wardrobe, plus her cosmetic surgery and Botox, cost? Why haven't they focused on Barack Obama's wardrobe? His clothes are so stylish that he was on the cover of GQ: [photo]
[wringing paws] Oh, why or why, indeed, Power Line boyz?
The Power Line boyz say it's because the others are rich. In other words, they used their own money. Spot thought that Republicans would think this is a good thing!
And come on, RNC, give her the clothes. Kind of a consolation prize. For Miss Congeniality.
