McCain/Palin's Phony Reform claims vs Palin's "Real America" Nieman Marcus Trips

The bankrupt, drained and empty McCain platform takes another nosedive in the revelation that Sarah Palin's stylist was paid more than McCain's top foreign policy adviser. Contrary to the phony media myth and puffery, John McCain's understanding of foreign policy and his judgment about same pales in comparison to what we need by way of foreign policy. And truth be told, his adviser Randy Scheunemann is pretty off base and very cold war retro. He is part of the problem. And so I am not sure how much his time is worth. But still... where are McCain's priorities?

Amy Strozzi, who works on the reality show "So You Think You Can Dance" and has been Palin's traveling stylist, was paid $22,800, according to campaign finance reports for the first two weeks in October. In contrast, McCain's foreign policy adviser, Randy Scheunemann, was paid $12,500, the report showed.

Here's the article. By the way, unlike Sarah Palin, who bills the Republican donors for her extravagent shopping sprees, the Obamas pay for their own clothing. Palin's bills included clothes for a two year old, which she doesn't have. Is she buying for the future and billing donors?
