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!

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?!
