Kinda interesting - politcal futures trading

Before anyone get their fur up I'm just posting this as a couple of points of information. I encourage everyone to VOTE for the candidate of your choice - however...

...as it gets closer, the trading futures are starting to show a clear trend:

I was also stunned this morning when the Republican National Committee disclosed that it has spent $150K on new duds for Mrs. Palin in just the past several weeks. This is clearly illegal. I'll bet Mrs. McCain was along with her as a consultant on the shopping sprees as she only wears Chanel - don't you know. Although NOW they are saying the clothes were bought with the intention of giving them to charity. OK. Right. Sure...

I guess you CAN put lipstick on a pig after all!

It's considered advertising isn't it? That is obviously what they are trying to sell...

Hmmm, that's a stretch. Here's the deal:

Using campaign funds for personal use isn't legal, according to longstanding advisory opinions issued by the Federal Election Commission. Financial disclosure records released by the RNC indicate that the VP accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined total of $49,425.74, reports Politico. And that's not all. There were also two major shopping sprees to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one in early September that rang up a staggering bill of $75,062.63. Payments in September were also made to Barney's New York ($789.72), Bloomingdale's New York ($5,102.71) and Macy's in Minneapolis ($9,447.71). And don't forget the hair and makeup! The RNC spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

I was fortunate enough to have a friend of mine -a paprazzi - sneak me this photo of her taken just yesterday showing off her new look! I LIKE IT!

John was NOT pleased....

It's amazing for a simple hockey mom....speaking of fake, phony, plastic banana, good time rock and roll, elitists!

How about that $53k for "family travel" since she's been governor?! WTF? What's the family flying on, private corporate jets?....Speaking of FAKE reformers and mavericks!

Ron, did somebody steal her knockers while she was in hair and makeup?
