Spare No Cost When It Comes to Governor Sarah Palin!

By John Lillpop


Hilarity is the operative term whenever liberals try to make an issue out of spending, either personally or by government.

The latest example is the comical reaction of the left to the upgrade of Governor Palin`s wardrobe, reportedly costing the Republican party $150,000.

To begin with, of course, is the fact that the tab for this wardrobe enhancement is not, we repeat not, a taxpayer funded expenditure.

The second point is that Governor Palin is such a drop-dead beauty that crowing her with the most pricey and luxurious clothing available is not only appropriate, but it is actually also mandatory when dealing with such an exceptional person.

Granted, if we are talking about Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, or Hillary Clinton, it would make sense to limit spending to less than $150.00. Far less, in fact.

"Cast not pearls before swine," as a savant of the Middle East said over 2,000 years ago, and when it comes to Democrats we are not talking about pearls!

However, when it comes to Governor Palin, no cost should be spared. This is the most glamorous and intelligent woman in national politics and, as such, she deserves whatever adornment she fancies.

As for Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, let these beauty-adverse old crows dress in minimum wage clothing, emblematic of their roots with the unwashed masses!
