Sarah Palin’s Wardrobe Malfunction & Some Useless Trivia.

21 10 2008

I’m still shaking my head about this one.  Scarf-gate?  Not since Rachael Ray, and her “terrorist scarf,” have there been so many raised eyebrows over a piece of neckware.  Sarah Palin was seen today at a rally in Reno, Nevada, according to Newsweek, wearing a very patriotic silk scarf with the word “Vote” on it….flanked by rows and rows of (wait for it) Democratic donkeys! This may truly be one of my favorite moments of her campaign. It’s clear that she (and perhaps her RNC professional shopper) does not know that the donkey is the symbol of the Democratic Party. After the discovery that she still does not know the basic job description of the Vice President, this shouldn’t surprise us.  And alas, now that the donkey’s out of the bag, she probably won’t be wearing it again, but thanks to the magic of the internet, you can click HERE for the stunning visual.

One more reason to like Barack Obama.  He wouldn’t show up at a campaign event in an elephant tie.

And here’s this little snippet from Palin during a CNN interview today with Drew Griffin.

So, finally Joe the plumber and as we talked about today in the speech, too, he’s representing, you know, Jane the engineer and Molly the dental hygienist and Chuck the teacher and, and all these good, hard-working Americans who are, finally, were able to hear in very plain talk the other night, what Barack Obama’s intentions were to redistribute wealth.

For anyone who wants to impress their friends with their erudite knowledge of Sarah Palin trivia, “Molly the dental hygienist” is a reference to Sarah’s sister, Molly (Wooten) McCann, the ex-troopergate-wife, and “Chuck the teacher” is her father, Chuck Heath.  Jane the engineer? I’m still working on that one.

Man, maybe I am just loopy from lack of sleep, but this entry (from the donkey scarf to “Molly my sister the ordinary American Jane Sixpack”, has me laughing hysterically.

Ok, so now I really know what not to wear. I always put my elephant scarf collection away during election season, just so I don’t make that mistake.
I wonder how my sisters will think when they hear how much of their parties donations money is going to make SP more barbie like, also.

It can’t be helped my sisters are all red, and that just makes me more blue.

Yes I have a masters degree in industrial engineering, I have no desire to be smarter than the vice president. I have recently been popular with my local senator and congressman who have come to the fabrication plant I run we have become the local poster child for a made in the USA business, a forward thinking semi green business (we make solar cells) a and how crappy the economy is all rolled into one. In both cases I have been left with the impression that I was dealing with a person who left me in the dust in the intelligence department. Frankly, I found this reassuring :)

The real kicker on the $150,000 for the clothes is that it is from public financing money and it is equal to 3.75 times Joe the Plumber’s annual income. So we have to ask Joe, if you paid your taxes do you think the money should be spent on clothes for the rich? Isn’t that some sort of a redistribution of the wealth?

I was headed for bed but was drawn back to mudflats for some final thoughts to share.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/10/22/palin-clothes-spending-ha_n_136740.html

In the above article about how republicans are livid about the money spent on Palin’s wardrobe, it states that “…the story has the potential to dampen enthusiasm among GOP activists and donors at a critical point in the presidential race. It also creates a huge PR headache for the McCain ticket as it seeks to make inroads among voters worried about the current economic crisis.” and “During a week in which the Republican ticket is trying to highlight its connection to the working class – and, by extension, promoting its newest campaign tool, Joe the Plumber – it was revealed that Palin’s fashion budget for several weeks was more than four times the median salary of an American plumber ($37,514). To put it another way: Palin received more valuable clothes in one month than the average American household spends on clothes in 80 years.”

The way this looks like just one more thing that is coming back to bite the McLame campaign in the rear big time made me think about the people running this campaign and the decisions they are making. Are they a modern-day version of the three stooges? I was also reminded of the old roadrunner cartoons. The coyote would try every dirty trick in the book to do in the roadrunner. No matter what the wily coyote would attempt, however, it would end up boomeranging back to him and bash him in instead as the roadrunner would go “beep, beep,” run circles around the coyote, and continue merrily on his way unscathed. Seems very similar to this campaign. You have to wonder at what point the whole thing will just implode.

South Side Chicago
I really did watch the entire CNN Sarah Palin interview with Drew Griffin and I must ask–

Am I the only CNN viewer of the Drew Griffin – Sarah Palin interview that noticed the truly distracting lamp and shade to the left of Drew? The set lamp evoked the grand prize (late 1980s, earlier 1990s) movie ‘A Christmas Story’? Remember the father in the story who won a prize (Fra-jill-ee!) that turned out to be a woman’s leg with a fringed lampshade that the mother in the movie absolutely hated?

The weird lamp made it even harder to actually listen to the more refined ‘toned down’ accent of the AK’s once runner up beauty queen and the over-engaged interviewer. To have the distracting ‘leg lamp’ AND its shadow on the wall whenever the camera focused on Drew Griffin was strange. What’s up with this? Is it subliminal if you see it? Yuck!

“In the five years of her collegiate career, spanning four universities in three states, Palin left behind few traces.

“Looking at this dynamic personality now, it mystifies me that I wouldn’t remember her,” said Jim Fisher, Palin’s journalism instructor at the University of Idaho, where she graduated with a degree in journalism in 1987.

“It’s the funniest damn thing,” said Fisher, who had Palin in a class of just 15 students. “No one can recall her.”

Indeed, interviews with a dozen professors yielded not a single snippet of a memory.”

Obama economic strategy best for workers

“Obama’s economic plan will turn around the wrong-headed policies that have pushed our country to the brink of disaster. George W. Bush, backed by McCain, has actually worked to suppress the wages of American workers.

Both Bush and McCain have fought against raising the minimum wage. Both have tried to restrict our right to organize and bargain. And both have supported failed trade agreements that drive our wages and benefits down by forcing competition with countries that have no enforceable labor or environmental standards.”

Who’s Attacking Joe the Plumber? Barack Obama Says Not Him

ABC News’ Sunlen Miller reports: At a rally before 30,000 in downtown Miami, Senator Obama said it was “remarkable” that Senator McCain has pointed the finger at him for being responsible for Joe the Plumber’s public portrayal.

“He’s decided to completely make up – just fabricate- this notion that I’ve been attacking Joe the plumber,” Obama said, “let me tell you something, even yesterday, just yesterday Joe the Plumber himself said that wasn’t true. I’ve got nothing but love for Joe the Plumber. That’s why I want to give him a tax cut.”

By exploiting America’s divisions — divisions over Vietnam, divisions over cultural change and, above all, racial divisions — he was able to reinvent the Republican brand.

This is exactly what I’ve been saying! How is it that all those middle class and working class fools (I dare say) who attend her rallies and cheer her crap NOT understand that the whole idea is that people like Cindy McCain, Warren Buffet, Paris Hilton, Exxon Mobile pay more taxes so poeple like THEM can get tax breaks or so there is more money for their kid’s school?

I woke up this morning thinking about the obscene amount of money the RNC spent on Palin’s clothing and makeup. Of course, those on the conservative boards were defending the expense as if it was nothing. Some countered with “well you would criticize her if she came out here wearing clothes from WalMart”.

If this isn’t an example of a disconnect with the American public then I’m from Mars. I’m sorry, what average or even upper middle class American could or would spend that much on clothes and grooming??

Where I live you could buy a fricking house with that money. (Especially with the current melt down.)

I can’t believe how out of touch the RNC is with America, and the fact that some Republicans will accept this obscene expenditure. Hell, any normal person could have purchased a very nice wardrobe for a fraction of that price.

Do they have any idea how INSULTING it is to spend that much money on her when so many people in this country are loosing jobs and struggle to put food on the table? They could have spent a fraction of that amount on her clothes and no one would have noticed the difference. These are the people some want to budget our country and get back on track??

Palin’s $150,000 personal clothing and grooming allowance may be a new wrinkle for the FEC:

“The cash expenditures immediately raised questions among campaign finance experts about their legality under the Federal Election Commission’s long-standing advisory opinions on using campaign cash to purchase items for personal use.”

SC Strike Chipper Hussein Pro American Goodwill Clothes Shopper Palin

Wow. I just recently started a new job, moving up from a blue jeans job to a professional one. I had some clothes (from before I was laid off, 7 years ago) that were appropriate–but not many that still fit and look that great. So I went on a shopping spree, too! I think I spent $350 dollars and honestly, 2/3 of that was for shoes because I had NO professional shoes and I have problem feet (flat, wide, various pains) to begin with. But I think I did quite well to get 4 pairs of shoes, 4 pairs of pants, 6 shirts of various styles and a sweater for that money. Oh and a few belts and socks, too.
Now, if I had an additional $150,000 I would have paid off the remaining mortgage, gotten a makeover for my house, a new car, a new cat (and some really cool cat furniture) and easily had $60,000 left over for savings.

I have decided to take on a new part-time specialty:
I am available as a consultant for shoppers @ $450 hr. Additional services billed separately. Also.

Good point, jwa. I honestly think there is some profound depth psychology going on in all of this. The Neocons like Bill Krystol seem to get off on controlling candidates as their psychological automaton bots. It seems to be part of their “psychological politics” in interacting with others. GWB really pushed their warped Neocon buttons. For them, GWB was like have a radio controlled car from Radio Shack on Christmas Morning! Now with getting to also play radio controlled “Dress Up Barbie” there seems to be a new psychological dimension that is even kinkier for them and more novel and fun.

Like having a political mistress that you pay with clothes and then you can get her to do whatever you want as to political ideology. It seems to comfort them in the insecurity of their little ideological centric world. They can give her the dress up cloths and then fantasize about her delivering the goods in some far off appearance on Meet The Press involving leather and some kind of swing device. But it is still only fantasy for them, because she could never appear on MTP and be credible.

This whole wardrobe and makeup thing is very telling on the psychological level. Very telling indeed.

I can’t wait until this is finally all over and she can just get a TV show on Fox and these guys can just lick their TV screen when she is on in studded dog collars. It will all be harmless there and the rest of us can just get on with trying to create a viable future for our country through engaged political action and dialogue.

Everyone keep posting here on the Mudflats. AKM’s site is going to have a very long and very important future!

We don’t know AKM’s true chromosomal profile. But spiritually it fits in the cosmic vibe. And it certainly does for the Alaskan woman who organized against the Barbie Queen and certainly the fine women who post on this site! I think there are more women posting here then men.

That is just completely true! “Normal” people just wouldn’t spend that money on clothes and makeup – even if they could. And these are not the kind of clothes that are going to end at a thrift store – they’re not going to help people who need help!

There was a really long article on HuffPost just recently re: how almost all the leaders of modern fascist movements were gay.

It’s a matter of wanting to look nice on the telly. I seem to recall months ago there were articles on HuffPost or elsewhere showing before & after pix of Snipehunt’s clothing — I seem to recall her “before” clothing ran towards fleece sweatpants.

I could be wrong.

To be fair, she probably needed some clothes. I haven’t shopped for women’s clothes all that much, but would …. oh, $400 sound reasonable for one complete set of clothes? Maybe $600? So, 10 changes of clothes…$6000? 20 changes $12000? Plus shoes & donkey scarves &, I don’t know, donkey scarves for Todd?…another $12000, being generous? So, would you say $24,000 would be sufficient? Plus, okay, how about another $24,000 for a month’s worth of makeup and stylins’?

$48,000.

Maybe the extra hundred grand was just sweetener for keeping her mouth shut.

Forget the wardrobe malfunction..and maybe those were jackasses, as some commentator noted on the Newsweek link.

Think about the $150,000 spent on gussying up Sarah. She is all about flash, show and sex. Not substance. All fluff.

Her wardrobe and makeover are shameful. How does Joe Six Pack feel now, I bet his wife has probably never set foot in Nieman Marcus, Saks, Barneys or Bloomingdale’s. Small town, patriotic America does not have stores found in the elite, non-patriotic cities. It’s Wal-Mart for most.

And now that the “Belle of Wasilla” has hit the big time, how will she adjust to her hometown minus all those high-end stores when she returns on Dec. 5, on a commercial flight from the Lower 48. I guess it’s going to be lots of trips to Seattle and other cities for shopping sprees.

——————————–
I wasn’t implying anything like that. I’m implying these people somehow get their warped kinks in controlling other people through a political ideology. It is actually almost even apolitical in vibe. It is very, very strange. Like their politics is some kind of deep psychological pay back on everybody else in the world because they had distant parents in unhappy childhoods or something. Rove and Kristol ooze trouble in bonding with their fathers. Sure, it is very easy to parody this level of interaction in their blatantly sexualized politics of the novelty of the Palin VP pick. They were so gleeful about it that that itself seems to reveal a profound underlying psycho-spiritual derangement. This obsessive addiction may now well cost them the Presidency of the United States and they actually did not even really care! These are deranged people. The demonization of other Americans as being unpatriotic communists if they are not rabid Neocons is part of the same strange mindset.

There were plenty of good female Republican candidates out there that would be formidable political candidates in this very serious hour. But they went with this choice! It is very, very telling about what these men really think of women that they would stoop this low.

I personally met Hillary Clinton in 1992 and shook her hand. She is an attractive woman to me, but that was the furthest thing from my mind when I met her. I was looking into her soul. It was a moment that was well beyond male nor female. It was soul. She is a very different person now from what I sensed that day. I trusted her then. I don’t now. But I still would have gladly supported her if she would have divorced Bill. On her own, I like her and trust her judgment enough. I kept an open mind until April and then came around to Obama. Now I think Obama is clearly the best possible candidate any political party could ever have.

But, yes, “lots of bad plaid” might be an accurate description of these Neanderthals who salivate over Sarah Palin solely as a woman in high heels. Personally, if she does get a Fox TV show I would never watch it because I see no intellect there whatsoever. Zero. Intellect and cosmic spiritual insight is what makes life interesting. I think a TV show with her would last no more than a month. Like most people here, I have also experienced that looks can only carry anything for about a month in life. After that you have to find some other level.

Just say’in!

As a serious fashionista (when I can afford it, which is not now) I had a feeling they were going to have someone “style” SP for the campaign. No offense, but the “Alaskan Look” wasn’t going to cut it in the Lower 48. Not to mention, someplaces like where I live, it’s still 85 degrees. I doubt she had a “business” wardrobe for that.

Stylists, because they can be paid literally thousands of dollars to organize a wardrobe, just don’t shop at lower end retailers. So, this stylist, whoever he/she was did what was familiar. They went to the top. They knew they could make a flying trip into any SFA or NM and say, “Give me what you’ve got in a stylish, conservative size 8 (I’m guessing).” No way did he/she think of the political flap if any of this came out, because that’s not their job.

The ONLY way they are going to get out of this clean is if they say “Oh, we always intended to stage a post election auction for XYZ charity!” It would help if the charity had to do with either disabled kids or military families. Celebs do this often with dresses worn to special events. Often the charity gets way more than the original cost of the item. Can’t you just see some of those Super Red old dudes salivating over some outfit of the Governesses? Gross, yes, but if it benefits a deserving cause, well, then the end justifies, and all that rot.

I’m far, far, far from an SP fan, but I kind of give her personally a pass on this one. The RNC, not so much.

Supposedly the scarf was a gift from a PUMA – a so-called Democrat supporter of HRC – sorry – that just makes me want to barf.

Soooo- how much does Hilary spend on her outfits? What do the guys spend on shirts/ties/suits? Why are many of you fixated on on clothing? Are you listening to the message? Because with a tied AP poll it sounds like about half of America talking to the poles is thinking she and McCain have the message that is fit. The other half or so see Obama and Biden’s message fit. If you want to st art worrying about incidentals and then make obnoxious comments, why not worry about words (ie Biden’s continual foot in the mouth)?

Fact is, muff ups will happen to anyone who has 24/7 camera on you and have for each of the 4 on the trail. Get off your high horses and worry about discerning what is being said by each about policy and ideology- not clothes.

Two wars, economy collapsing, borders wide open, $10 trillion in debt, record foreclosures, communist China about to become the most powerful nation in the world, FDA cannot stop poisoned food from entering the country, voting machines rigged, oh yeah, and Sarah Palin’s likes it donkey style….

Dems should send Biden to Barney’s on their tab « Our Un-Enlightenment

[...] they do Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The media can’t get enough of Palin’s wardrobe, and who could blame them? It’s not like anything important is happening in the country right [...]

I love that this is the kind of stuff that is attracting the press. I think it’s safe to say a lot of people are burned-out on the election coverage (Thank God for early voting), and this kind of coverage certainly doesn’t make me want to pay any more attention.
That being said, stories like these area a breath of fresh air juxtaposed with the economy.
Either way, a scarf is a scarf, and a scarf is never Vice President. She’s still a Republican, so her party and supporters will still get what they’re paying for out of Palin.

I read someone gave her the scarf and she put it on without paying attention and then was photographed in it haha! Now that’s funny!

Just when you think the $150,000 clothing fiasco is dying down, Sarah fans the flames. I can only think of it as a medical condition: She seems to be compulsively driven to rationalize her behavior. I think John McCain is blinking. twitching, clenching his fists and counting to a very high number just about now.
