$150,000 vs. $30

When I heard the news of Gov. Palin (or the campaign or the RNC) spending $150,000 on her wardrobe in the last month, I had to read the story twice to make sure I got the number correct. $150,000--or roughly 8333 shirts from Sandbox Threads, or to paraphrase the article, what the average American household spends on clothes in 80 years, Palin received in one month.

The story also triggered a memory of watching the above interview earlier this summer, and after a bit of searching, I found it on YouTube--you really can find any clip from any time on YouTube.

And if you're curious, Obama's suits cost about $1500 per suit (expensive yes, but I'd be willing to bet he doesn't have 100 suits). Also, here's a picture of the shoes...

and the $34 dress

Although, this scarf seems to be money well spent--Vote Democratic Donkey? Conspiracy Theorists enjoy!
