A few nurses have come up with ways to spend the $150,000 that bought Gov. Palin’s wardrobe.

A new internet game posted this morning by the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, , lets web users themselves find other uses for the shopping spree the Republican National Committee famously spent on wardrobe and makeup for Gov. Sarah Palin.

“The secret is out. There is a Marxist in the Presidential race. She’s just not on the Democratic ticket. The real Marxist is in the McCain camp, the Neiman Marxist adorned in that fetching $150,000 wardrobe,” says CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro.

“It’s extremely disingenuous to paint yourself as a ‘hockey mom’ or the voice of ‘Joe Six Pack’ when you’re strutting around in a $150,000 outfit,” said DeMoro.

“Real working people live and dress far differently,” DeMoro noted.

The $150,000 shopping spree amounts to, as Sam Stein noted on Huffington Post, more than the average American household spends on clothes in 80 years.

The same $150,000 could buy

  • 15,000 chef coats
  • 5,769 painter’s bibs
  • 5,000 police shirts
  • 4,687 auto mechanics’ coveralls
  • 3,750 pilot uniforms
  • 3,571 housekeeper uniforms

Imagine that!

Seems there are just two groups of people in this world who agree with Sarah’s big spend on her new threads.

Sarah Palin says she will donate her clothing to charity once the campaign’s over.

However, that didn’t stop Republican donors’ fury today.

They’re asking a couple questions today.

Is spending $150k on clothing in such a short period of time–for an election campaign–even legal?

Shouldn’t she should be able to pay for her wardrobe with her own money?!

You’ve got to check out Bluefly’s Fashion Decision ’08.

With the election only two weeks away, Bluefly customers are already casting their votes in the five-week online election.

Every Thursday, Bluefly asks voters to decide which candidate  one representing red, the other blue – rocked it better. 

From the First Wives-to-be, to the candidates and their surrogates, visitors can riff on, for example, who rocked the Sarah Palin look best  SNLs Tina Fey or the aspiring Veep herself?

Or who wore the other partys color better: Michelle Obama in Republican red or Cindy McCain in Democratic blue?

Palin, Palin, PALIN…

She’s splashed on newspaper and magazine covers and hogging your news segment — because of her role in reenergizing the Republicans and because of her EYEGLASSES.

Now almost every frame maker / retailer is being bombarded with requests for Palin’s extra pair of eyes.

Just so you don’t run out and get them — only to be disappointed that they don’t fit exactly like hers do, I thought I’d post a few tips to consider when you’re selecting frame. Read More »
