Your Questions Answered About Wardrobe-Gate

This week, Sarah Palin said she was "back to wearing my own clothes from my favorite consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska." Really?

You betcha. She sported a pink jacket from "Out of the Closet"; owner Ellen Arvold told CBS that Palin's been a customer for three years, buys mostly "classic, feminine, fitted jackets" for $40 to $100.

Did she personally go on that $150,000 shopping trip to Neiman Marcus and Saks?
The Palin camp hasn't explained who went on the ill-fated spree. Best guess? While the nominee was working the convention, an aide raced over to the stores, picked out a variety of suits and accessories and brought them to her hotel. Insiders are still pointing fingers about whose bright idea this was, anyway.

Who actually owns the designer duds?
The Republican National Committee, which also paid for her makeup artist, her hairdresser and outfits for her family.

The RNC returned one-third of the items. Damage control?
McCain adviser Mark Salter said they went back to stores right after the convention because they weren't Palin's size or style.

What's happening to the rest?
Palin has worn many but not all of the outfits; some are in the belly of her campaign plane. Spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said everything will be donated to an undetermined charity after the election, including that swell $2,500 Valentino ivory silk jacket Palin wore for her convention acceptance speech.

Nad, while you were screeching over this "150K outrage", Obama (who is spending $295,000 per HOUR) was executing a fraudulent Campaign Donation operation to the tune of $200,000,000. See the irony, WaPo? take your blinders off and address the REAL issues in this camapign. Barack Obama was schooled in the City of Thugs - how to register people illegally, dead people, felons, absentees, foreigners and how to collect the money illegally. At least two staffers have come forward with evidence that they were told to take foreign money donations (which are illegal, America!) from the envelopes they arrived and switch them to new envelopes for US postage. He is a fraud and a crook and your coverage (persistent LACk of coverage ) has been criminal. Send your reporters to Ohio where the Sec of State Jennifer Brunner is up to her eyeballs in voting fraud: the Obama campaign gave ACORN donor lists to work with to use names fraudulently. Ohio swindled the system by opening a 5 day window to register and vote SAME DAY! No checks, verifications! Homeless are allowed ot use a park bench as their address to pull off multiple votes. Mentally ill patients are driven to regiter and vote for Obama, against their will and without adult faculty. Brunner blocked poll watchers from obeserving during the 5 day window. An Obama staffer was just fired for duplicate voting (NY and OH). 4 Ohio state govt offices illgally accessed private info on JoeThePlumber to try to discredit the messnger (and hope to blind AMerica from the message: Obama is a socialist). Need more? Do your job!

Barack's money $295,000.00 per hour is spent on Advertising! The budget for everything else he is doing can be found at the GBO site.

Bye bye, galegirl. Don't let the door hit you on your way out to join your fellow sore losers.
