Outfitting for the “real” America

October 22, 2008 17:35 – 17:35

The McPalin campaign’s shopping list, according to Federal Election Commission records, looks something like this:

  • $75,062.63 spent at Neiman Marcus on Sept. 10.
  • $41,850.72 to Saks Fifth Avenue in New York on Sept. 10.
  • $7,575.02 to Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis on Sept. 10.
  • $5,102.71 to Bloomingdale’s in New York on Sept. 10.
  • $789.72 to Barney’s New York on Sept. 10.
  • Charges of $4,396.94 and $512.92 at Macy’s in Minneapolis on Sept. 10.
  • $4,537.85 to Macy’s in Minneapolis on Sept. 22.
  • $349.50 to Lord & Taylor in New York on Sept. 25.
  • $4,902.08 to Atelier New York, a men’s clothing boutique, on Sept. 10.

All this is to outfit Sarah and her family. I can’t wait to see the tab for October. Clearly, this represents the “real” America. Their expenditures just for September exceed my family’s lifetime expenditures for clothing. I wonder how much of this went for lipstick for the pit bull and the pig…
