Normally I post these without much comment. But I this time I couldn't help it.


Because this picture helped me understand why the RNC spent over $150,000 on Sarah Palin's wardrobe.

The Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

The cash expenditures immediately raised questions among campaign finance experts about their legality under the Federal Election Commission's long-standing advisory opinions on using campaign cash to purchase items for personal use.

See, here's my theory. That $150,000 wasn't just spent on "items for personal use." That money was an investment in raising the prospects of picking up or turning on out a certain segment of the youth vote.

And that, my friends, is what we call as "stimulus plan."
