Contrary to the claim of some that Governor Palin has just been pretending to be like the rest of us - She isn't pretending - she IS Jane Six-pack.
Remember, she and her family didn't have lots of time to prepare for the Republican Convention. That's why the campaign ran out to buy the family new clothes, get it? The money wasn't spent on her alone - the campaign wanted the entire family to be primped up.
Which means she really is just like me and my family.
By the way, if you look at the number of stores and the dates, many of them on the same day in different cities, it's hardly likely that she herself was even doing the shopping. Do you think she had time to shop as she jumped from city to city? The campaign had a professional buyer choose the clothes and bring them to her.
According to reported records of the Federal Election Commission, this is shopping list for Ms. Sarah Palin and her family:
• $75,062.63 spent at Neiman Marcus on Sept. 10.
• $41,850.72 to Saks Fifth Avenue in New York on Sept. 10.
• $7,575.02 to Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis on Sept. 10.
• $5,102.71 to Bloomingdale’s in New York on Sept. 10.
• $789.72 to Barney’s New York on Sept. 10.
• Charges of $4,396.94 and $512.92 at Macy’s in Minneapolis on Sept. 10.
• $4,537.85 to Macy’s in Minneapolis on Sept. 22.
• $349.50 to Lord & Taylor in New York on Sept. 25.
• $4,902.08 to Atelier New York, a men’s clothing boutique, on Sept. 10.
• Two separate charges of $98 to Pacifier, a high-end baby store in Minneapolis, on Sept. 10 and Sept. 25.
• $98.50 to Steinlauf & Stoller, a sewing supply store, in New York on Sept. 25.
• $133 to the Gap in Minneapolis on Sept. 25.
McCain's team did the shopping. That's their prerogative. She looks great.
