Sarah Palin's Celebrity Makeup Artist

Sarah Palin's Celebrity Makeup Artist

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An acclaimed celebrity makeup artist for Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin collected more money from John McCain`s campaign than his foreign policy adviser.

Amy Strozzi, who works on the reality show `So You Think You Can Dance` and has been Palin`s traveling stylist, was paid $22,800, according to campaign finance reports for the first two weeks in October. In contrast, McCain`s foreign policy adviser, Randy Scheunemann, was paid $12,500, the report showed."  The Associated Press/JIM KUHNHENN

The Cheshire Cat disappeared gradually until only its smile was left behind, if Sarah Palin the Pitt Bull pulled the same stunt only her lipstick-smeared snout would be left behind.

Like the cat from Lewis Carroll`s Alice in Wonderland, Palin is all style and no substance. She doesn`t know Jack about foreign policy or domestic affairs, but who cares she looks real stylish in her designer duds paid for by Republican donors.

When voters think about Palin does her command of the issues come to mind? Yeah, right! Palin brings to mind bee-hive do`s, lipstick and rimless glasses.

It boggles the mind that the McCain campaign has doled out $22,800 for a celebrity makeup artist to do Palin`s hair and makeup. Joe Biden`s hair plugs may have cost more than that, but at least he didn`t pay for his hair transplant from campaign funds.

Every day there is a new revelation illustrating the superficiality of Sarah Palin. Like most Americans I`m on a tight budget, it makes my blood boil that the McCain camp is misusing campaign funds.

I can think of a better ways that the McCain team could have spent that $22,800.

*Vocational school tuition for "Joe the Plumber". When he becomes a real plumber he might be able to afford his own business.

*Anger management classes for John McCain.

*A fund to keep Cindy McCain awash in prescription drugs.

*A tutor to teach Palin the basics of the Constitution.

*A grief counselor, Palin and McCain will need therapy to deal with a humiliating landslide loss.
