She's just spreading the wealth around. Do as she says, not as she does. She also claims it was always the intent to give clothing away to charity later. Maybe now that this has been exposed, yeah. Still, I'll believe it when I see it.

$150,000 for CLOTHING? You've got to be kidding. I could pay off my mortgage for that kind of money. Leave it up to the Republicans for spending so much on such a trivial matter when pepople are losing their homes. Good going Sarah!!!

will it end? $150,000 would pay off my entire home mortgage and give me $85,000 profit to go to Target, or WalMart, or KMart, a used car with less than 170,000 miles on it, my utilities, and my local grocery store to live on necessities the rest of my life.

Send her packing on Nov 4; we so don't need her! We had 8 years of dumb, I can't take anymore...I beg for mercy! Voters take this one away! John McCain you are responsible, even if we all know you will do a Michelle Bachmann sumbled down dance of irresonbility around the issue...No on every Republican on the ballot!

If there is one thing that is for certain, when it comes to greed, the Republicans have no limits and no shame.

........ of course I can think of a few mean things to say, but really, what's the point? Let's all just put our money where our mouths are, go volunteer for your party, and vote on Nov.4.

I guess she plans on loosing on Nov 4th. Or maybe she still thinks they may win, but the cloths will be old by then and she will want another $150,000 in new clothes for the next two months and so on and so on, ...... To me it show a lack of fiscal responsability.

Yea, that is a ton of dough to spend on clothes. A huge waste of money if you ask me, But I think the Dems are getting a little worried if this is the worst they can come up with on Ms. Palin. They should really be thanking the R.N.C. That is $132,114.91 that is not being used to buy political adds against the Dems. Its not like it was tax payer is my understanding that that money comes from political contributions. Besides, I would be curious to find out how much of the Dems money Ms. Clinton has spent on clothing over the years.

I'll still be voting for McCain as I'm a lifelong Republican, but I can't believe what a trainwreck Palin has been... I think this is the nail in the coffin on the 08 election. I wish she would have stepped down six weeks ago, but then how could you give up all those fabulous outfits?! Sheesh - Huckabee 2012!
