Default Palin's makeup artist is highest paid individual on campaign

for the first half of October at least:

Who was the highest paid individual in Senator John McCain’s presidential campaign during the first half of October as it headed down the homestretch?

Not Randy Scheunemann, Mr. McCain’s chief foreign policy adviser; not Nicolle Wallace, his senior communications staff member. It was Amy Strozzi, who was identified by the Washington Post this week as Gov. Sarah Palin’s traveling makeup artist, according to a new filing with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday night.

Ms. Strozzi, who was nominated for an Emmy award for her makeup work on the television show “So You Think You Can Dance?”, was paid $22,800 for the first two weeks of October alone, according to the records. The campaign categorized Ms. Strozzi’s payment as “PERSONNEL SVC/EQUIPMENT.”

The payment on Oct. 10 made Ms. Strozzi the single highest-paid individual in the campaign for that two-week period. (There were more than two dozen companies that got larger payments than Ms. Strozzi). She easily beat out Mr. Scheunemann, who received $12,500 in the first half of October, and Ms. Wallace, who got $12,000.

Things just never tend to stop once the ball gets rolling.

In an interview with someone Palin attempted to pull out the gender card. She claims people don't talk about hair and clothes with the men like they do with her and Hillary. Does that really hold up? I mean John Edwards has the most famous haircut in history and for a bit people were talking about Obama's style.

Obama wears Hart Schaffner Marx suits almost exclusively. they run about 1,500 bucks a pop, from what i read, and he buys them himself.

I can find them in the 300-500 dollar range usually if there's a good sale goin.

Also, I think hillary buys her own clothes and would have already had the wardrobe to campaign.

The GOP has stated that palin didn't have enough clothes, but they're obviously just trying to manufacture an image.
