Because up until this point, that has TOTALLY been the main topic of discussion.
I remember very vividly the Dems accusing the Republicans of nitpicking, distractions, and DUHversions back when Obama first made his way into the spotlight. Now here you all are, talking about how money the RNC spent on clothes for Gov. Palin. Both sides are ridiculous hypocrites.

Kind of like you calling someone else a blind partisan in another thread?

No, I think the democrits can be pretty stupid also. It's just that the current champions are the repugs - of which I assume you associate yourself with.

Repugs claim to be the fiscally responsible party. Can you, with a straight face, say they are? We continue to get more examples daily. I imagine you're very proud.

Why would you assume that I think that Republicans are fiscally responsible? Have you been hiding under a rock for the last couple of years? The Republicans lack of fiscal responsibility is the main reason why many Republicans like myself have all but abandoned the Republican party. I thought everyone knew this by now?

Ya know as much as I dislike Palin, she is most likely unaware of the costs of the clothing and make-up artist. The campaign is to blame. they probably told her 'Here, put this on' without telling her the true cost of the items. It all boils down to appearances. They wanted her to look good and cost was not a factor.

No doubt, her Babe factor probably had as much or more to do with picking her as McCain's running mate than anything else as it's obvious they didn't spend much time vetting her.

Amazing. There seems to be one thing we agree on.

Where are you going? Starting a new party? Kicking the fundies to the curb?

She also spent $750 on a purse for her 7 year old daughter. Something is wrong with that. This is what the RNC's money is being spent on?

Boy, are they ever tossing this hot potato(e) back and forth :laugh:

The Guv sez they are essentially a prop (like the stage - heh heh). The McCain campaign sez the RNC did it. The RNC sez they wouldn't have done it without direction from the McCain campaign.

Looks like no one will 'fess up.

Republicans New Motto: ""I didn't do it!""

(not a surprise - they haven't taken responsibility for anything the last 8 years)
