Big Spending on Sarah Palin’s Clothes

Nevermind billions in earmarks. Forget Democrats trying to funnel $200 million or more to partisan Democrat-hack frontgroup ACORN, forget the $2,000,000,000,000 (that’s $2 trillion, folks) that has been wiped out in the financial markets, in no small part thanks to Democraticals playing fast and loose with “affordable housing” via their largely unregulated (because Democratics didn’t want no oversight) big-money playgrounds, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Forget the gazillions in taxes Democrats are planning to put in their pockets once they’ve got unbeatable majorities and the Whitehouse and can suck the gold fillings out of your teeth with their new fair-and-balanced tax plans. And forget that that’s all your tax money.

Sarah Palin, in Fancy Clothes. That Uppity Alaskan Woman. Just Who The Hell Does She Think She Is, Wearing Expensive Clothes That Are For Liberal Elites and Hollywood Types?

Republicans have spent a lot of money for Sarah Palin’s clothes! Tragedy! Scandal! One report has it at $150,000 dollars. Another report has it at $220,000.

Sarah Palin, Wearing Nice Clothes. The Outrage! The Scandal!

Forget Bill Ayers. Forget Obama and Ayers Annenberg Challenge, an “educational” program designed to indoctrinate school children into Marxism and anarchism instead of, I dunno, teaching them to read and write. Forget Joe Biden promising Obama will be tested with a terrorist attacks or direct military threats because the international community will see Obama as weak and inexperienced. Sarah Palin’s handlers in the McCain campaign spent a lot of money on new fancy duds for public appearances and what not.  

As the PuffHo’s note, Palin Clothes Spending has Dems Salivating. How much did Hillary Clinton spend on her clothes during the campaign? I’m sure it was all off-the-rack stuff from Dress Barn, right? Bah.

For that matter, how much money does Michelle Obama spend on her designer duds? Not to mention, those pearls she likes to wear. Hmm.

There’s more outrage over this than the AIG Spa Day that cost more than twice what Sarah Palin’s clothes–which are going to be donated to charity after the campaign, BTW–and was, for all practical purposes, done on the tax payers dime, not the campaign donors dime.

The conclusion to draw? First, while this is supposed to somehow illustrate Republican hypocrisy and that the down-to-earth Sarah Palin “image” is all bullshiznit, it’s actually the media elites and big liberal Democrats and partisan hacks pushing this story that are the hypocrites. What kind of wardrobe do they have? How expensive is Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton’s wardrobe?

Michelle Obama wearing . . . what? Versace? Donna Karan? No, Im sure shes wearing Jaclyn Smith from K-Mart. And the pearls, too. Fricking double-standardized hippo-crits.

Those folks don’t buy off-the-rack at Zales, I hate to tell you. None of them. And I doubt their clothes are going to charity after the campaign. And how pricey is Katie Couric’s wardrobe? Or any of the folks in the media? Is it just me, or is Michelle Obama sporting some new big expensive piece of bling everytime she shows up somewhere? The media’s response to that? Not interested. We gotta nuke Palin. Kill her, they shout. Why isn’t anybody reporting on that?

And that would be the second thing to draw as a conclusion. These folks are desperate to destroy Palin, to completely discredit her, and to drive a wedge between her and the people that love her. They are much more hostile to her than they are to McCain? Why? Because, McCain, for all his objectionable not-being-a-full-on-Marxist and being a Republican, is a Washington insider. In the end, he’s much more palatable than a salt-of-the-earth, tough-as-nails, regular-joe woman like Sarah Palin. The very idea that some of you peasants, you rubes, you red state neanderthals–the idea that you might get someone you like anywhere near the Whitehouse is anethema to them. So whatever it takes.

Can’t wait to vote for Palin come November. Yah, I know, Obama is gonna win. But I’m casting my vote for Palin. And Palin ain’t going nowhere, no matter what you libs throw at her, and no matter how much you wish it to be true.

And, if a miracle happens, and she ends up as Veep in the Whitehouse, I will luxuriate in the sweet taste of the elite liberal tears that will be raining down from the ivory towers that house them, and all their superiority. Hey, a guy can dream, can’t he?

Paul Krugman Suggests Neel Kashkari Uses Swaptree To Fix Economy

The idea is, Neel Kashkari will try and swap our debt and crumbling economy  (at Swaptree) for the smaller debt of a 3rd world nation somewhere.
When Enron effed up, folks went to jail, even Ken Lay who was mostly just criminally negligent. Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, AIG, etc.? Heck, lets just given them baskets of tax payer money!

No, not really, but it sounds about as smart as what they are planning, which is to buy banks, and bailout bad actors who would normally go to jail–seriously, where was the Enron bailout?

To remind you you, Neel Kashkari–sounds kind of like Cash-Carry, don’t it?–is the guy assigned to going around the country getting “Cash for your Title” and paycheck advance loans and hitting the pawn shops with old government surplus to get us out of the mess the Democratics got us into.

Paul Krugman is a widely respected economist who is about as wrong as any human being can be on the history and results of tax cuts, and spits on the Laffer curve (despite it’s consistenctaccuracy in predicting treasury revenues going up when tax rates fall).  Of course, he hates Bush and the Republicrats and conservatism and small businesses and free markets, so he just won the Nobel Prize for American Hating Economics.

Im Smart, Republicans Are Stupid, Bush is Retarded.
Kurgmanomics: I’m Smart, Republicans Are Stupid, Bush is Retarded.

Despite the fact I think Krugman is as stupid as everybody else thinks he’s brilliant, he’s been pretty good on the bailout. To the degree that he agrees with me that the whole thing is a horrible mess, he’s been fairly smart. No, I don’t got no economics degree, but it’s the folks with all the Nobel prizes for America Hating and fifty-letter doctorates in Fantasy Economics that got us into this mess in the first place.

BTW, I’m not the only one who thinks ole Kruggy is a disingenous moron. Krugman Truth Squad at NRO (I don’t think they are doing that any more, maybe they are) also covered quite a bit.

Burning Down The House: Them Crazy Democratics!

Oh, no they din’t!

Oh, yez they dids!

Watch it and weeps, Internets. Watch it and weeps as you learn the terrible, terrible, terrible truth, while you’re searching for bailout and house roll call and whatnots, learn what really actually happened. And how the magical politics of DC screws us all. Again and again.

Be afraid, Internets. Be very afraid.
