Proving your commitment to middle-class values? Priceless.

Yesterday, after Politico broke the news of Sarah Palin’s $150,000 RNC makeover (the Republicans seem to be mistaking the election for a debutante ball), McCain supporters took to the web to voice alienation and understanding, and everybody else was left to contemplate the political implications of Palin’s now-public shopping spree. First, the unresolved questions: Why would the RNC so deliberately threaten Palin’s Joe Six-Pack voter base? Is she really going to return the clothes after the campaign? How is it even possible to spend $150,000 at a department store? Finally, as Jon Stewart wondered on Tuesday, “does anybody work on this campaign?”

Total cost – $147,637. Perhaps another campaign drive is in order.
