The Myth of Joe Sixpack, er Joe the Plumber, er..
Remember when the GOP (correctly) jumped all over John Edwards for spending $400 of campaign funds for a fancy haircut? The righteous indignation blanketed the airwaves.
Now from those same folks we hear... SILENCE... over the revelation that the GOP spent $150,000 to clothe America's Favorite Hockey Mom®, Sarah Palin. Yep, that's right, the Alaska governator who so closely "relates" to Joe Sixpack, Soccer Moms and Joe the (unlicensed, tax-evader) Plumber has been dressed up with campaign contributions. The shopping spree included such Eastern Political Elite stores as Neimann Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys.
Yep, Sarah Palin is really "one of us," she just gets fancy free clothes. I wonder if Joe Sixpack is angry about the hardearned money (that could have been spent on frothy, self-medicating six packs) he sent to the Republican National Committee?
