Bad Sarah! BS Palin's $30,000 "Diet Dr. Pepper"

Poor Sarah. Just can't catch a break. Instead of just being embarrassed about spending $150,000 for 3 months of campaigning as a "jes folks" hockey mom, now the bill has jumped $30,000 more, even though she has insisted time and again, she never "asked" for anything more than a Diet Dr. Pepper once in awhile. Well, the bill for those Dr. Peppers just came in...

Whether BS asked for someone to shop for her at Victoria's Secret or not, those that think Sarah is just a regular gal and a fiscal conservative to boot need to rethink that one PLEASE. In other em-bare-ass-ing revelations, Sarah Palin's own father reported that it was hard for her to account for all the clothes stashed "in the belly of the plane" because "the kids lose their underwear." Look Sarah, you have a megawatt smile, and the folks luv ya. Why not leave behind the mean, unfair world of politics and be what you truly are inside - a beauty queen with the heart of a country signer. That would allow you to wear all the spangles and fancy underwear your heat desired, while touring the country with your family and talking to folks that adore you. Doesn't that sound better, dear? If you'd give up the political circuit for the Nashville circuit, (don't worry, you could air guitar and lip synch, just like you do now) I swear I'll buy your first concert ticket. I could even turn into a fan.

More spending on Palin revealed
Posted: 09:10 PM ET

The Republican National Committee's total fashion bill for Sarah Palin's nine-week stint on the GOP presidential ticket is in: $180,000. That's $30,000 more than the RNC previously disclosed it had spent outfitting and styling the Alaska governor and her family, according to Politico and the RNC's latest filings with the Federal Elections Commission.

The latest filing, which includes the final 3 weeks of the presidential race, shows the committee directed close to $55,000 to Palin's fashion stylist, New York-based Lisa Kline. The RNC also spent close to $24,000 in several high end stores, including Ann Taylor, Bloomingdales, Brooks Brothers, Neiman's, Nordstrom, Macy's, Saks, Target, and Victoria's Secret.

The RNC has said all the clothes purchased will be donated to charity. Meanwhile, the McCain campaign paid a total of $110,000 on Palin's traveling hair and makeup stylists, according to the New York Times and the McCain campaign's latest FEC filing. News surfaced shortly before Election Day that Republicans had shelled out more than $150,00 on Palin and her family in clothing costs — a revelation that posed an unnecessary distraction for the struggling McCain campaign, and undercut Palin's hockey-mom credentials.

UPDATE: Since even this post, the spending reports have topped an additional $165,000 or so over the initial $150,000 reported.

Heh, maybe if she helped her kids keep up with their underwear, she wouldn't be a mother to a pregnant teen. I can't believe her father said that!
