Letter to the Editor
When Palin was described as “Lipstick on a Pig” who would have thought that the lipstick included a $150,000 shopping spree? Now Republicans are trying to explain where the $150,000 came from and why they decided to spend it on clothes. Was it Palin’s idea? Was it McCain’s idea? Or was it the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) idea? The reason this is an issue is because for $150,000 McCain could have stayed on TV a week longer in Colorado. Should the RNC have used the money to support other Republican candidates in close elections? Someone made the decision to waste $150,000 on clothing. Now Palin looks like an elitist. Who ever made that decision has poor judgment.
