$150,000 shopping sprees (at all the best "elitist" shops, no less), on the Republican National Committee tab.
$21,012 worth of free flights for her daughters, charged to the state.
All this, when she already makes $125,000 a year as governor and pockets an extra $22,883 in energy extraction royalties.
Sarah Palin is a chisler supreme.
All of which makes the fact that she charged $16,951 in expenses charged to the state, including 312 per diem allowances for staying in her own home just that much more amazing.
A dual income family, with Sarah earning $125K. Free travel (even for the family), and now free clothes, hair and makeup. They can actually go out in her backyard and shoot a moose, keeping her family in free mooseburger for a year. And still she feels the need to cheat. Shoot that moose for free and still charge the state $60 per burger. And she claims she deserves every bit of it.
Now that's what I call a perverse sense of entitlement.
"Sounds like socialism to me," to borrow a phrase.
Just another fake "bootstrapper" Republican. What a shocker.
Meanwhile, we all have to endure the indignity of Palin turning the campaign for the Vice Presidency into some kind of FOX reality TV makeover show, where they take some ridiculously not-ready-for-prime-time pol and dress her up, push her out on the stage, and see if they can turn her into a VP in 10 weeks.
What the hell, right? It's just being second in line to the nuclear launch codes. No big thing. We could even do a whole copromotional deal with moose sandwiches at Subway.
Thanks, Republicans. You sure do love our country n' stuff.
