Palin Wardrobe: $150,000, Obama in Ten Year Old Pants: Priceless
The fact that Palin can’t accurately say what a vice-president does is slightly (but actually only slightly) more important than the fact that her campaign has spent $150,000.00 of Republican donors’ money on her clothes (McCain/Palin, they’re just like us).
Still, fashion is fun. And Palin’s Niemans and Saks splurges make for a very nice study in contrast with Barack and Michelle Obama. The senator manages to look super fine in 10 year old pants and Michelle is setting a fine example in our tough economy by rocking $30.00 sun dresses from the Gap. I’m sure not all of their clothes are OTR, nor should they be, but at least they are modeling how to get through tough times with style.
Months before any of this price tag whoohaa or even our current economic mess, Access Hollywood interviewed all of the Obamas about their family’s fashion budget. The video is funny. You almost expect Malia to refer to her dad as “that one” when she talks about his scuffed up belt. This family is precious, and these kids are being raised right!
