my campaign wardrobe

With so much ink being used about Governor Palin's pricey campaign wardrobe purchases and make-up artist fees, I thought I'd offer some badly-needed advice to her and the RNC.

My total wardrobe outlay for this campaign has been $12.95. I shopped via the internet. If the governor had spoken to me first I could have saved the campaign $159,987.05. Think of the stir she would have made all tricked out in that terrific T-shirt. And she wouldn't have to donate it to the Goodwill when she goes back to Alaska.

As for the $20,000 for her traveling make-up artist, I could have offered a much more economical way to do this. She could have gone to the cosmetics counter in any department store in the various cities in which she has appeared. She buys a lipstick (or two; one for her, one for the pit bull), for example, and gets a FREE make-up job. Think about it; Clinique one day, Estee Lauder the next, Chanel the next, Lancomb, Yves, and so on. It's easy. She would have spent maybe $15 for each tube, probably never used it, and donated them to a women's shelter. If her appearance is advertised, hundreds of women flock to the store, buy goodies, spend money. This is an all-around winner; she gets made up for free, women buy stuff, the store makes money, women in crisis get a treat, and the economy soars. She (and the RNC) could have avoided one of the campaign's more embarrassing PR disasters. But then, it wouldn't be any fun, would it?

Nine days until the election. Don't forget to vote, early and often!

Not only the Anchorage paper but the Des Moins Register. TRhe best, of course, is the Chicago Tribune; first time in 161 years it has endorsed a democrat. Not even Adlai Stevenson, also a "native son." Great news(papers)!
