The RNC has already stated that they purchased multiples of outfits in order to ensure the right fit. I would guess they did the same thing with shoes. If Ms. DeSmith were to tell a bunch of people who had never shopped for her nor knew how clothes fit her, I bet that the shoppers would spend more than necessary and purchase several of the same item. Those that did not fit or were not liked would then be returned to the store, as will happen with the clothes purchased by the RNC for the Palin family.

They probably used a shopper to help which likely involved a heavy fee as well as a big tip!

Not trying to pick a fight or anything, but if you can find footage of the Republican Convention of 2004 in New York, I think you'd be quite suprised at the resemblance to this years Democratic Convention set. I will grant you that The Dems had 4 columns as opposed to the Reps 2, but the same circular steps and backdrop were used. I'm wondering if both sets were designed by the same company?

This is news??? Bias reporting if I ever saw it -- why was there was no cost comparison with the Greek temple?? I thought reporting was to be down the middle - no left or right -- what has happened when all forms of media, the Star/Tribune is media too, make and report the news -- and in this election pick the president of the USA. How do they do this? By only printing negitive things (the yes/buts) about one party and seeing and reporting nothing negitive about the other party. I used to believe what I saw in the newspapers and, I did not beleive what I heard about the Star and Trib........I am stopping my at home delivery -- I will read on line, sometimes, when I want to shake my head in disbelief. Please get back to printing / reporting in a non partisan way...you are bad, bad, bad.
