I'll really miss this kind of batshittery:
"NEWSWEEK has also learned that Palin's shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported."MORE than $150,000? You're shittin' me:
"One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family—clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill.But after she burned through the campaign's clothing budget, she stopped, right?
Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent "tens of thousands" more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband.Oh well, at least all the clothing was given to charity... wasn't it?
Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast," and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books."Hold the phone! Run that by me again?
"An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast..."The Wasilla Hillbilly in 2012? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
