Baggage

Talking about the mistakes Sen. John McCain made during the campaign, Jack Cafferty on CNN was just saying that Gov. Sarah Palin's choice as VP candidate "came with too much baggage."

I suspect she needed the baggage to carry home all those new clothes she got the RNC to buy her and the family.

NEWSWEEK has also learned that Palin's shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported. ... 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.
