The McCain-Palin campaign is over, but Wardrobe-gate lives on. More embarrassing details have emerged about Sarah Palin's infamous shopping sprees -- including even more designer duds, plus sprayed-on tans and fancy underwear.

On top of the $150,000 first outlined in Federal Election Commission filings, Palin spent "tens of thousands of dollars" on additional clothing, makeup and jewelry for herself and her family, including $40,000 in luxury goods for her husband, Todd, our colleague Michael Shear reports. The campaign was charged for silk boxer shorts, spray tanners and 13 suitcases to carry all the designer clothes, according to two GOP insiders.

"The shopping continued after the convention in Minneapolis, it continued all around the country," one source said. "She was still receiving shipments of custom-designed underpinnings up to her 'Saturday Night Live' performance" in October. Sources said expenses were put on the personal credit cards of low-level Palin staffers and discovered when they asked party officials for reimbursement.

I have never faulted Sarah palin until the socialization comments happened. I believe she was never the person to be that close to the presidency. I also think she will do anything and say anything to win, as the comments made by her. I hope the republicans realize that racial politics is dead. I would never support a person who seeks politucal gain through separing people based on fear.

Women of the GOP! Women in Glasses!

These rumors are coming from self-interested, unnamed staffers. Some might want to pin the blame for defeat on Palin, others might be trying to undercut her future chances.

Don't trust MSM sources that fail to highlight the almost certain reason for the rumors.

So Lonewacko, did you realize the election is over?, a little bit of info for you, she's married so forget about it!

So, do you think all those low-level aides just went and charged up all those clothes on their personal credit cards by themselves? The WAPO is reporting what her REPUBLICAN aides are reporting and statistics from the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE.

She was greedy, childish, ignorant, vindictive, a juvenille attack-dog, and naive.

She's got a degree in broadcast journalism, you know, the kind of degree a beauty contestant goes for.

More smears. It's not surprising that the WaPo would turn into a sub-basement version of the National Enquirer, considering all the smears they pushed and lies they told during the election.

Meanwhile, they completely ignore what BHO supports:
