Comments on: Who needs foreign tourists? Luxury chains have Palin! http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/10/22/who-needs-foreign-tourists-luxury-chains-have-palin/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: BeaPractical http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/10/22/who-needs-foreign-tourists-luxury-chains-have-palin/comment-page-1/#comment-382650 Wed, 22 Oct 2008 22:54:18 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/trail08/2008/10/22/who-needs-foreign-tourists-luxury-chains-have-palin/#comment-382650 It is a nice gesture to say the clothing items will be donated to charity — which means a big tax write off! — but, in these dire financial times is grotesque for a candidate (and FAMILY) to be furnished clothing from Neiman Marcus and other high end stores. I will feel the same if the dems use political contributions for extravagent clothing. Belt tightening should start AT THE TOP. The GOP could have chosen to be role models, instead of hypocrites. I wish all camps would sober up and start acting more like they really understand the budgets of Joe and Josephine Plumber.

How many people do you know that spend 150k in 5 weeks on cloths. She campains on no earmarks,overboard speading,ETC and does an end run,not the first time. First,Troopergate,then the airfare fraud (for her family) and now this. Eventhough little,in real dollars, it really gives you insight into the REAL Palin.Fraud with a smile.

I guess small town apparell and style is better left at home than brought out on the campaign trail.

I guess she is supposed to get support for being good looking and well dressed. We are supposed to totally forget what comes out of her mouth. Pandering for the vote and she claims she is not a celebrity . . . Too much fun.

I guess he forgot to tell us about all the loopholes. Like the candidate cant spend campaign money on personal items, but the Pacs, RNC and DNC can. This sounds like this was another BS law to make the politicians look good. Who hired Tracey Schmitt, as a spokes person. They both should be let go. How can she say with a straight face that they will donate the clothes to charity. I guess the people in Alaska who go to the Salvation Army are drooling to get something worn by Palin. Tracy goes on to talk about all the important things going on in the country why talk about clothes. Does she realize that the amount spent on the clothes could feed a family for 6 to 12 months. People are loosing jobs, going hungry and are cold, and this lady does not think spending that amount is important. No wonder McCain is doing so badly. The people working for him are out of touch as he is. What they spent on hair clothes etc. is the pay for 3 middle class workers for a year. Duh!!!!!!!

Isn’t that nice, it can only get better if she gets into the White House right? Then she can be like Condy, and go Shoe Shopping while natural disasters are happening like in Louisiana.

A down-home kind of woman does not wear such high-end kind of clothes!
