Page Six seems unusually left wing this morning with a report that the jacket Palin wore when she spoke at the RNC in St Paul was a Valentino worth about $2700.
Page Six goes on to detail how there’s clearly a lot of money being spent by Palin on clothes for these events because stylists are hinting at it.
We spoke to someone on Palin's styling team, who told us, "I did a little bit of personal styling, but I can't discuss anything I've done with Sarah Palin. I'm not sure which designs she wore . . . anything related to working with her is confidential."
Yes, it’s confidential because she’s just an average hockey mom who joined the PTA and who sold her state’s jet and took on the good old boys’ network. She’s just like everyone else. Except in 2700 dollar Valentino jackets – and you know what? I thought her jacket looked like it was constricting her arm movement somewhat. It looked ok but it really didn’t seem very comfortable - certainly not worth 2700 dollars even if it WAS Valentino. Like, it only looked right when she had her arms by her side in a state of physical subservience.
I’m torn about Palin in terms of whether she will work for the McCain campaign. I wonder if she has the capacity to keep moving and to actually plausibly jump through the hoops because after all she still has to debate Joe Biden who could easily clean the floor with her. There are cracks and red flags everywhere on her – her family and this jacket included. However, a large percentage of American people, whether they vote or not, don’t give a shit about anything besides their simple emotional gut reaction to candidates which can be as inanely arbitrary as anything else so maybe she’ll scrape in. Maureen Down quoted some dumb ass average American trash on her approach to voting and she got this golden quote:
She said she’s never voted, and was a teenage mom “like Bristol.” She likes Sarah because she’s “down home” but said Obama “gives me the creeps. Nothing to do with the fact that he’s black. He just seems snotty, and he looks weaselly.”
Cause that’s all it’s about. Avoiding the weaselly look.
Incidentally, apparently the outfit Cindy McCain wore was worth about $300,000 but that's ok because she’s openly worth about $100 million dollars and considers herself the only child of her beer distributing kingpin father (even though she has two half sisters she has disowned and cut off from their father’s fortune after he died and battled an addiction to Vicodin and Percocet because she was lonely being married to John McCain who was never home - family values, what?). I mean, I’ll admit it - I could almost look past all that because I’m increasingly distracted by the strangely magnetic and mesmerizing gay diva appeal of Cindy McCain – I’m a sucker for a complex, glamorous broad – I can’t help it.
Consequently, I can see how hard it will be for your average American who, despite their lack of education, can still manage to be so complexly narcissistic that they both won’t see that Sarah Palin is an ill-equipped delusional fraud and that they actually don’t need someone in the White House who is as stupid and delusional as they are – they need the exact opposite.
