This is ridiculous and hardly warrants a whole thread. I disagree with Palin's political views, but I'm not going to bash her because of something trivial like this. It seems people will use anything to deface their opposition.

Hmph. The only good thing about this person is that she actually wants to save the Polar Bears. Bush saves Belugas. Both are good, but yeah.

The human race just gets stupider and stupider. Well, Sarah Palin does anyways... So glad am I that I don't have to keep track of the American Election system, it's so complicated!

lolol that's because Biden is a man. You know how a lot of us are. I just grab a random t-shirt and jeans out of my drawer.

Wait... you're not even American? Why the hell do you care so much about what Palin wants to do anyway?

Personally, I'd rather have her than McCain as President.

Agreed -- I hold no love for Sarah Palin, but this is kind of silly. Yes, 150,000 is excessive, and I can see why some of the people who donated towards McCain's campaign might be irked, but appearance is a big deal in a campaign like this. More than ever, trivial issues (race and sex being the most prominent) are being used as tools to get voters. Womens' clothing is more expensive, and if she came out in something from Wal-Mart, the media from both sides would treat Sarah Palin just as poorly.

This is seriously getting ridiculous.

People nitpick around to find any way to bash and criticize Sarah Palin. Seriously, why care so much what so wears? Does it make you feel any better to complain about her clothing? People these days really need to take a chill pill and back-off. Focus on more important issues.

Lately, people have been focusing more on Sarah Palin than John McCain too... She's NOT the one running for president... Why isn't Biden put under this much scrutiny?

Because Biden wouldn't be the first female VP in US history. That's why she's getting all the attention.

$150,000 is quite excessive, especially since we aren't voting for someone because of their sense of style. I wasn't aware that was in the job description.

Exactly I understand formal but 150K is way to formal.

I agree with this.

In other words, who gives a ****?

Oh and by the way, it's pretty sad that people spend so much time finding out how much someone's clothes cost. No life or what?

True it is ridiculous, but to some extent she must have worked to get that money...
Now I will never waste money on a stupid thing like clothes :/

I think the funniest thing is here, that people are so quick to judge other people how they spend their own money, when they don't even look at themselves.

You're quick to judge a presidential candidate on their personal life, what they spend their time / finances on, how they react to every possible situation, etc. But what do you do in your personal time that you don't want others to know about? What have you wasted your money on recently? What have you wasted your time on recently? How would you react if you had 6 million people staring at your entire personal life and have it wide out in the open?

Before you judge others, look at yourself. No one is righteous or perfect and everyone has things they need to improve on. A presidential candidate is a human-being just like you are. And I guarantee you they are doing a heck of alot better than you are.

The really sad thing is that I've seen this story everywhere.

It's like the media has nothing better to do than criticize people about every little thing. It's clothing, people. Who cares?

While the amount of coverage this is getting is ridiculous, it DOES have something to say about how "Palin understands middle class income poeple because she is one".

It's a political year, everything and anything can be used to influence the voters to vote a certain way. And the media will use it because it gains ratings. A smart voter will look past it. It hasn't affected my decision at all.

Uh, folks, it's a story because she spent $150,000 of campaign money to buy her clothes. You'd be right in that nobody ought to care how someone spends their own money but it's not her money that she spent. Presidential campaigns are funded by tax payers and small donors (remember there's a $2,000 limit on donations)--so she's spent other people's money in a way most inconsistent with her own campaign rhetoric.
