Sarah was brave , and she deserves applaud for her effort.
I would watch out for her in 2012. That is when the world ends when HELL FREEZES OVER(Alskan Tundra)
I wont vote for her, but I will definately expect her return.
She could have refused.

This is hysterical.

Palin says she never asked for anything except for a diet Pepsi once in a while and that the $150,000.00 spent on her wardrobe are not her clothes. They belong to the RNC.

Good.

Maybe Rudi can use them when he desires to cross-dress.

A government watchdog group filed a complaint about the spending spree by the RNC for Sarah Palin's wardrobe.

Apparently, there is a federal ban against the use of campaign funds for personal items.

Lawyers for the RNC are trying to ascertain what was purchased, what was returned because it was the wrong size and what has become of the rest.

The RNC also wants to know if the clothes will be going to charity or if Palin will pay for them.

They declined to say whether or not they would be sending anyone to Palin's home to take inventory.

Seriously, Sarah.

$150,000.00 on clothing!!!!

This wasn't the Miss America beauty pageant.

Return the unused clothes; sell the rest on Ebay and donate the money to charity.

Palin denounces her critics as cowardly - Yahoo! News

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called her critics cowards and jerks Friday for deriding her anonymously and insisted she never asked for the expensive wardrobe purchased for her use on the presidential campaign.

"I never asked for anything more than a Diet Dr. Pepper once in a while," Palin said as she returned to the governor's office from her two-month odyssey as the GOP vice presidential nominee. She said the Republican National Committee paid for the tens of thousands of dollars in designer clothes and accessories.

"Those are the RNC's clothes. They're not my clothes. I never forced anybody to buy anything," she said.

Republican Party lawyers are still trying to determine exactly what clothing was purchased for Palin at such high-end stores as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, what was returned and what has become of the rest.

She particularly lashed out at the anonymous Republican campaign sources cited in a Fox News report who said she did not know Africa was a continent, not a country, and could not name the three countries in the North American Free Trade Agreement — Canada, the United States and Mexico.

"I consider it cowardly" that they did not allow their names to be used, she said.

Palin said those allegations aren't true. She recalled discussing Africa and NAFTA with aides who prepared her for the vice presidential debate with Democrat Joe Biden.

"If there are allegations based on questions or comments that I made in debate prep about NAFTA, and about the continent vs. the country when we talk about Africa there, then those were taken out of context," she said. "That's cruel, It's mean-spirited. It's immature. It's unprofessional and those guys are jerks if they came away with it, taking things out of context and then tried to spread something on national news. It's not fair, and it's not right."

Palin also said she would not call on Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, to resign, although last month, before his re-election bid, she said he should "step aside" and "play a very statesmanlike role in this now." Stevens, 84, was found guilty on seven counts of trying to hide more than $250,000 in free home renovations and other gifts that he received from a wealthy oil contractor.

Three days after the election, Stevens, the longest serving Republican in Senate history, is about 3,500 votes ahead of Democratic challenger Mark Begich with thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in the next two weeks.

Said Palin on Friday: "The Alaska voters have spoken and me not be a dictator, won't be telling anyone what to do."

When asked if she would call on him to resign, Palin said: "Not after the will of the people has been made manifest via that vote."

Meanwhile, RNC lawyers are discussing with Palin whether what's left of the clothing and accessories purchased for her on the campaign trail will go to charity, back to stores or be paid for by Palin, a McCain-Palin campaign official said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the campaign hadn't authorized comment.

The sorting should be completed in the next four or five days, the campaign official said, declining to say whether the RNC was sending anyone to Alaska to help take inventory.

The RNC spent at least $150,000 on designer clothing, accessories and beauty services for Palin after she became John McCain's running mate in September. The spending included $75,062 at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis; $49,425 at Saks Fifth Avenue; $9,447 at Macy's; and $789 at the luxury retailer Barneys New York. Some of the purchases were for Palin family members, such as $4,902 spent at upscale men's clothier Atelier and $92 at Pacifier, a Minneapolis baby boutique.

The McCain-Palin campaign said about a third of the clothing was returned immediately because it was the wrong size, or for other reasons. However, other purchases were apparently made after that, the campaign official said.

The spending drew a complaint against Palin and the RNC by a Washington government watchdog group. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission accusing Palin and the GOP of violating a federal ban on the use of campaign funds for personal expenses such as clothing.

The RNC didn't respond to repeated requests by The Associated Press for comment Friday.

It's routine for candidates to get professional hair and makeup services at campaign expense before they go on camera, but Palin's shopping spree at GOP donors' expense is unusual. It contrasted with the down-to-earth "hockey mom" image that Palin sought to craft and gave the campaign unwanted publicity in the form of newspaper headlines, Internet chatter and comedians' jokes.

FEC spokesman Bob Biersack declined to comment on the spending beyond confirming that the commission has received CREW's complaint.

It is funny, how this became a big issue. I see far less harm in dressing the lady in red than say...The Government buys a claw hammer for $5,000.Where is that investigation going?

There are far more criminal activities than this situation where no crime ever occured. Some of these groups are just puky used up moms with nothing to do but stare at everyone and suspect them of wrong doing.They were jealous. Look what was spent on Hillary(that is far easier to hide).

Get to the Bottom of what happened on 911 and you will have reported something that does not waste the readers time.Copy a BS yahoo story and you might as well be more concerned with buying a pack of juicy fruit with out being charged with a hate crime for dissing Gays.

By the way...Sarh is quite a beautiful woman. If she does run in 2012, she is gonna be mad woman I agree..but she will do better than McCain did.

She lost the VP because of that little chicken shit McCain. He threw the election, and conceded before 40 minutes had passed after the polls closed. He was ready to walk.He was all along.

Those who voted McCain -Palin were Racist and knew that thier votes were wasted. But that was Johns doing, not Sarahs. Take it up with the hand, my friends. nope-nope-nope

As far as this clothing...OMG...the event is over. All that millions of dollars all together is spent. WHY? Because we like it that way.We want to hear the gossip and see the dirt. But this is old.

Way to go Sarah...better luck next time!

Yeah, way to go Sarah.

Back to Alaska and for the sake of the American people and to avoid more embarrasment upon yourself and family, don't let them USE you again in 2012 as another scapegoat.

I would suggest Sarah not relive this terrible experience like BA relives hers on a daily basis.

As evidenced by my contributions on this site, I don't relive my incarceration in MKULTRA/Project Monarch on a daily basis.

You, however, seem to keep going there by inserting comments such as the above and Springsteen's name in threads where they don't belong.

Try staying on topic.

You want to talk about mind control; MKULTRA/Project Monarch or Springsteen bring it to appropriate thread.
