I'm sure those brave gun toters and recreational killers will appreciate the way Cindy McCain and Laura Bush dressed up for their stage appearance at the RNC:
CINDY MCCAIN'S $300,000 OUTFIT
One of the persistent memes in the Republican line of attack against Barack Obama is the notion that he is an elitist, whereas the G.O.P. represent real working Americans like Levi “F-in’ Redneck” Johnston.
It caught our attention, then, when First Lady Laura Bush and would-be First Lady Cindy McCain took the stage Tuesday night wearing some rather fancy designer clothes. So we asked our fashion department to price out their outfits.
Oscar de la Renta suit: $2,500
Stuart Weitzman heels: $325
Pearl stud earrings: $600–$1,500
Total: Between $3,425 and $4,325
Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500
Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000
Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000
Shoes, designer unknown: $600
Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100
Oh, yeah, Republicans...here are two card-carrying, registered, anointed and crowned ELITISTS! If you're unemployed, and your home is about to go into foreclosure, you'll sure want to vote for Cindy's husband..and his "hot" VP candidate!
Frankly, I think Cindy and Laura look a bit like the winners of a Laverne and Shirley look-alike contest!
