I have a picture of a crack team of republican lawyers trained in specialised haute-cuture identification breaking into the Palin bedroom and saying "prada with those hips - oh, darling please no"

According to something I heard this morning, Palin's staff needed to buy several sizes of the same dress to ensure that one fit just right. :rolleyes:

Presumably she returned all the dresses, otherwise they'll have to be reported to the IRS as gifts - unless Palin turns them over to the governor's office, i.e. her wardrobe becomes property of the State of Alaska. :rofl:

I read yesterday that an inventory showed clothes were "missing".

Winter is coming in Alaska and nobody wants to see Ms. Palin naked so perhaps the GOP could organise some sort of charity clothing collection.

If I know Republican Lawyers, they probably took a proctologist along too.

According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill. Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent "tens of thousands" more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband. Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast," and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books.

I wonder if Palin will get any "tough love" from an Alaskan Joe Arpaio? :devil:
