No, it's not complicated. Almost her entire foundation rested on what was stated above: her hockey mom, joe six pack, just-a-regular-person, small-town-girl status.
It doesn't really matter where the money came from. The fact that she even has access to such opulence and the fact that she accepts it will remove her from "just like you" status in the minds of many.
All it does is further prove that her image is manufactured, a fact that was obvious to most people from day one. People don't like seeing someone they believe in turn out to be less than what they hoped.
Personally, I think it's a fairly silly point, but their own actions made it newsworthy and people are fickle enough to let it alter their decisions.
I think anyone with a brain would realize that things will change once you are nominated to be the VP candidate for the Republican party. The ONLY reason that this much money was spent on her is because she is now John McCain's running mate, she did not have access to this kind of money before that.
^^Wrong... That woman goes out and says she is campaigning AGAINST the Elitists... and fighting for the common man.. etc.. BUT can spend $1500 a day on makeup...
