Men who purchase clothes for women -- A different kind of John

I've been biting my tongue all afternoon as soon as it was revealed that one those Rove operatives (Jeff Larsen) apparently paid the tab at the Minneapolis, Minnesota Neiman Marcus for Palin's shopping trip there -- to the tune of something like $75,000.

Now I know a lot of folks are annoyed and angered by the fact that the hockey mom, PTA pit bull should have a $150,000 wardrobe shopping extravaganza. I get that.

But what also bugs me, bugs me a lot, is that some man plunked down the dough. Itj's just some kind of creepy...

That line from the insipid movie She's All That (yes, I watch a lot of insipid movies) where Rachel Leigh Cooks says: "It's just like Pretty Woman, without that whole hooker thing."

Am I being old-fashioned? Showing my naivete? What think you? Mountain out of a Molehill?

No votes yet


according to The Hartford Courantlooks as Courtney, the Congressional Rep with the narrowest win (83 votes) is running way ahead:

Unable to afford a major advertising campaign, Republican Sean Sullivan tried to maximize the free exposure of a public broadcasting debate in Enfield Tuesday night by scuffing up the record of freshman U.S. Rep. Joseph D. Courtney, D-2nd District.

Sullivan said Courtney supported the Democratic leadership 98 percent of the time and was too partisan to represent the district. Courtney replied that those votes saved Medicare, produced a new G.I. Bill and set the first new fuel efficiency standards in 32 years.

It was an uphill battle for Sullivan, who saw one-third of the 90 minutes go to G. Scott Deshefy, a Green Party candidate barred from their first televised debate. Sullivan seemed impatient whenever it was Deshefy's turn to speak.

Later in the article it reported that Courtney is polling over Sullivan -- 2 to 1.

direction....but what is that can take the girl our of the country but not the country out of the girl.

Wouldn't it have been nice to have purchased clothing from some down home real American stores like say Target, K-Mart,Wal*Mart, yah know, Joe the Plumber type stores. Hypocrites the whole bunch of 'em.

As for a man purchasing the clothes....she's some kind of turn on for them. Beauty is only skin deep...and Lordy she's bore how many kids...get a grip guys.

a little pedestrian, no?

All compliments of the RNC. This is the part that got me ...

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

Now, maybe the clothes will be donated to charity, but that's a helluva lot of used makeup -- and 4G and she still has her bangs flopping in her eyes.

ePMedia ... get the scoop with us!

There's no HTML choice, with all that's there, to post with.

Looks good, but......

Don't need HTML editor, but now it's telling me I'm not logged in when the site says I am.


"The wise man points to the stars and the fool sees only the finger - and discusses it 24/7 on cable."

Greyhawk says it posted twice, been All Over the site with most of the links and see neither, so Where Did You Hide It?!

"The wise man points to the stars and the fool sees only the finger - and discusses it 24/7 on cable."

Also when I tried searching in IE and clicked on 'Recent Commentaries' the IE browser gave me a little popup than shut the site down, something about protection for my puter with a report box. You might want to find out why it did that in IE, I'm back in in Firefox.

Nope, you found the nail head squarely with your hammer. Not to mention: Does it not smack of "My Fair Lady?" "The rain there in Spain there also falls mainly in the plain, also, there." 

I keep thinking -- would Hillary or Elizabeth Dole, or even Kay Baily Hutchinson let some Dude-Guy plunk down 150,000 to dress them to be more presentable?

...I don't know if it is accurate, though. But I have just heard that the average American family spends $150,000 on clothing in 80 years.

Way to stay in touch.

A lot of folks live in houses that aren't even worth that much!

Great statistic, thanks bradybonk!
