Palin stylist draws higher pay than policy adviser
WASHINGTON (AP) — An acclaimed celebrity makeup artist for Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin collected more money from John McCain's campaign than his foreign policy adviser.

Amy Strozzi, who works on the reality show "So You Think You Can Dance" and has been Palin's traveling stylist, was paid $22,800, according to campaign finance reports for the first two weeks in October.

In contrast, McCain's foreign policy adviser, Randy Scheunemann, was paid $12,500, the report showed.

In recent days, McCain and his running mate have tried to douse a furor over how their side spent their money.

The Republican National Committee came under scrutiny after the party committee reported earlier this week that it had spent about $150,000 in September on wardrobe and cosmetics after Palin joined the GOP ticket.

In an interview with the Chicago Tribune and Fox News on Thursday, Palin said the clothes bought for the Republican National Convention were not worth $150,000 and said most have not left her campaign plane. She also said the family shops frugally.

"Those clothes are not my property. We had three days of using clothes that the RNC purchased," Palin told Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday night.

There was no evidence of additional clothing purchases in the most recent reports.

It has to be said, however, that she IS kinda cute.

And isn't that all that REALLY matters?


  1. It needs to be said: A pig in a dress is still a pig in a dress. Delicious bacon, yes, but too much is still bad for the heart!

    I'm not voting for someone one who puts superficial appearances over real world issues.

    It makes me wonder why the emphasis is on her looks, rather than her brains.

  2. Eroswings:

    And bacon isn't very good if it's overcooked...gets all hard and crispy. And all that left-over fat!

    Bringing her on board initially energized McCain's sagging campaign, but she's hurt more than helped.

    He's goin' down, man.

  3. clearly the party thought the americans needed to be impressed bny what she looked like as well as what she said!
