And the next time the US is attacked:
Presidential aide: "Mr President, the Chinese are massing at our borders!"
Obama: "You're kidding me? Quick, warm up the teleprompter and I'll whip out a quick apology. That ought to do the trick! Maybe some b-ball and beer afterwards."
Funny how people take a dump on Palin, yet see no problems with Hitlery Clinton in the newly remodelled Oval Office.
Starting this thread that points out only Sarah Palin means you bought in the "left-right paradigm".

Bose headphones. A birthday dress for Bristol. Campaign documents and e-mails reveal the fine print.
In fact, shopping for the Palins involved many campaign staffers: at least eight of the candidate’s aides requested reimbursement for clothing purchases for the Palins that they charged to their personal credit cards. The records of those purchases also reveal that Palin’s later claims—that “we had three days of using clothes that the R.N.C. purchased” (at the Republican National Convention) and that she understood the clothes to have been “loaned to us during the convention”—were completely false. So was the spin of Palin’s campaign spokesperson, who stated on October 22 that “it was always the intent that the clothing go to a charitable purpose after the campaign.” On October 23, in a previously unpublished e-mail (quoted below), Palin wrote that she had no idea the clothes would eventually need to be returned, and suggested that she believed the items were being given to her and her family as gifts. And campaign documents show that, remarkably, the spending continued into October. On the 20th, the day before the clothes-buying sprees were made public, a staffer paid $639.36 for clothes and a coat at Macy’s and Ann Taylor in Reno.

It appears as if Palin might have been a little more innocent than what we were made to believe.... At first. While Palin may have been "shocked" at first, it certainly didn't stop her later from taking it all in and going for more. In fact, it didn't stop here from lying in an attempt to cover up this huge shopping spree.
I find it to be kind of telling (and funny if it wasn't so tragic) how Palin was supposedly "sticking up" for the little guy, the guy who just lost his job; his home; his livelihood, yet relished the idea of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on clothes not only for her, but also her family.
If this was her behavior while running for national office, could you imagine that kind of behavior in national office? I'm not saying that Palin's government would be any worse than Obama's, just saying... This should be a good window into the actions of the "choices" who are paraded in front of us. What gets me the most, is that Palin is trying to claim the Tea Party movement and while the charter of this movement is to oust government corruption, she has no qualms with stealing money to put fancy clothes on the backs of her family.
Anyway, I suggest that everyone read the article, as it gives good insight into the attitude of American politics.
