    Default Dumb & Dumber, Sarah Palin and Elizabeth Hasselbeck blast Wardrobe-Gate


    TAMPA, Florida (CNN) – Ensuring that news of the Republican National Committee's sartorial spending spree will remain in the headlines for at least one more news cycle, Sarah Palin on Sunday sounded off on the $150,000 wardrobe that was purchased for her in September, denouncing the report as "ridiculous" and declaring emphatically: "Those clothes, they are not my property."
    A senior adviser to John McCain told CNN's Dana Bash that the comments about her wardrobe "were not the remarks we sent to her plane this morning." Palin did not discuss the wardrobe story at her rally in Kissimmee later in the day.
    But in Tampa, Palin happily broached the clothing issue after being introduced by "The View" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who accused Palin's opponents of being "fixated on her wardrobe" and "deliberately sexist."
    That opened the door for Palin to weigh in on a topic that has frustrated the candidate and her advisers since the story first broke five days ago.
    "This whole thing with the wardrobe, you know I have tried to just ignore it because it is so ridiculous, but I am glad now that Elisabeth brought it up, cause it gives me an opportunity without the filter of the media to get to tell you the whole clothes thing," she said.
    "Those clothes, they are not my property. Just like the lighting and the staging and everything else that the RNC purchased, I'm not taking them with me. I am back to wearing my own clothes from my favorite consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska. You'd think — not that I would even have to address the issue because, as Elisabeth is suggesting, the double standard here it's — gosh, we don't even want to waste our time."
    Palin, however, forged on.
    "I am glad, though, that she brought up accessories also. Let me tell you a little bit about a couple of accessories, didn't think that we would be talking about it, but my earrings — I see a Native Americans for Palin poster," she said. "These are beaded earrings from Todd's mom who is a Yupik Eskimo up in Alaska, Native American, Native Alaskan.

    "And my wedding ring, it's in Todd's pocket, 'cause it hurts sometimes when I shake hands and it gets squished," she continued. "A $35 wedding ring from Hawaii that I bought myself and 'cause I always thought with my ring it's not what it's made of, it's what it represents, and 20 years later, happy to wear it. And then finally the other accessory, you bet I'm a gold — I'm a blue star mom. I'm wearing this in honor of my son who is fighting over in Iraq right now defending all of you."
    After spending four minutes on the shopping escapade, Palin switched gears and trained her sights on Barack Obama, who, she said, is prematurely measuring the White House drapes.
    "Barack Obama and I, we both have spent quite some time on the basketball court," she said. "But where I come from, you have to win the game before you start cutting down the nets."
    Palin accused the Democrat of renting a stadium for a victory party on November 4.
    That's actually not the case — Obama's rally on election night will be held outdoors in Grant Park in downtown Chicago.
    "They've overlooked though the minor detail of earning your confidence and your trust and winning your votes," she said.

    God I hate Hasslebitch. Since I learned of her siding with Palin she has no redeeming qualities. JUST AN OPINION.

    She just doesn't get it: it's obscene for the RNC to spend 150 grand on clothes for her at some of the priciest shops in America while people are losing their jobs, their homes, their lives. It doesn't matter where the clothes go or if she's forced to give them up when the election is over. They tried to dress her the part but then she opened her mouth.

    Yep, that one really got under my skin. He's not defending me, for sure. Someone really needs to smack her upside the head.

    I am back to wearing my own clothes from my favorite consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska.

    The best part is you know this b wanted to keep all the clothes for herself and now she can't since she started talking about how it's so not her and Mccain is saying she's "frugal."

    ^^ LOL. She has got to be feeling like bitter jellus fattie now.
    I read that at the Elisabitch/Palin rally, when Eliz. started saying how the media was 'deliberately sexist' toward Moosekiller, the audience started cat-calling her.

    Oh the irony.

    She didn't stop them either.

    Funny that.

    The Moosekiller and Ratings Killer in 2012! I think we found a perfect partnership, hahaha. They'll probably come out with some conservative talk show on Faux who will pay for their expensive clothes and all will be happy in Barbieland again.

    Really so where is he at? He could have been deployed to a boat sitting off the coast of California. Stupid choice; suicide or jail...

    The last I heard, he was in basic training at Fort Benning. Not sure when he gets deployed.
