Oh I agree totally. I think that if I had a point in any of that it simply was that I would have hoped that Mrs. McCain would have found out that the
outfit was $300K, and then said "Oh that's obscene - I'm not wearing that."
I don't think the woman needs to shop at Wal-Mart by any means, but a little sensitivity to folks who aren't as well-off would have been nice.
There is an application written for the iPhone called "I am rich". All it does is flash a little red glowing gem on your phone's screen. It costs
$1000 and it's sole purpose is so that people with money can show off how insignificant $1000 is to them. Kind of like in the old gangster movies
when the big boss would light his cigar with a $100 bill. Cindy's outfit strikes much the same chord with me. There is no way any outfit could
actually be worth $300,000 - it's just an in-your-face statement that "I'm richer than you", and it's offensive.
