Clothes make a statement

October 27, 2008

Re "A political fashion do or don't?" Oct. 23

Because Sarah Palin has made being "pro-America" one of the cornerstones of her campaign speeches, why is she wearing expensive clothing made by Italian designers Valentino and Gianfranco Ferre?

At a time when many Americans have lost their jobs, it would have been more appropriate and pro-American for the vice presidential nominee to wear clothes manufactured in the U.S. Palin should practice what she preaches.

Now I understand what Grand Old Party really stands for: a grand for this top and a grand for these trousers and a grand for this jacket. How in the world is it necessary or reasonable for Palin to spend $150,000 of our political donations on a new movie-star-quality wardrobe for her and her family? In my head, I am picturing a tractor-trailer filled with clothes.

I thought she was one of us. How do I apply to get my political contribution back?
