Sarah Palin Wearing Hobo Togs Now
Last week Sarah Palin was exposed as a vulgar fraud for parading around various poor white trash rallies in gazillion-dollar suits made byforeign elite gays and financed by a shadowy hedonist cabal called "the RNC". She didn't say anything about this terrible scandal for a while, because she trusted American voters would be more concerned about "real issues" like Barack Obama's terrorist pals, who include Karl Marx. But after a few days of bad press she started saying things like, "These clothes isn't mines," and by this weekend she had reverted to wearing tragic street urchins' rags to show she is a Real Pro-America American.
Dogged for days by the brouhaha over outfits from upscale stores such as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, Palin argued that she and her family live frugally. To emphasize her point Sunday night, she wore jeans at an event in Asheville, N.C.
Of course her newest stunt embodies the very worst sort of materialism, worse even than spending three times your average supporter's yearly salary on red motorcycle jackets and peep-toe pumps: the kind of materialism where you crow about how little you spent on something in order to demonstrate how virtuous you were for not spending money.
Palin talked about her accessories Sunday: earrings that were a gift from her husband's Yup'ik Eskimo mother, and "a $35 wedding ring from Hawaii that I bought myself. Because with my ring, I always thought, it's not what it's made of, it's what it represents."
(Hint: her ring represents Sexism, as in, her very inexpensive ring exemplifies her remarkable frugality, which only a Sexist would point out is completely phony.)
Sarah Palin will spend the rest of the campaign wearing a hair shirt and mom jeans from Out of the Closet, her favorite consignment store in Anchorage, whose name she does not realize is a pun.
