Sexism?

While campaigning for Sarah Palin in Florida, View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck attacked the Republican’s opponents and described criticism of Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe as “deliberately sexist.” [HuffPo]

      I kinda have to agree with her. While yes, the Republican’s criticism of John Edwards haircut was wrong. It was also meant to feminize him in the eyes of the bubba men out there.

      How much money does Barack Obama spend on clothes? Do we know? Surely he’s not wearing 2 suits he picked up at Target?

      I think there is plenty to criticize and make fun of in Sarah Palin, but I think the clothes issue is pretty stupid.

      @ Nick:

      Barack Obama on his clothes:

      “You know, I haven’t changed my approach to dressing too much. Michelle has asked me to clean up, because when she first met me I had one suit.”

      He noted that his wife finds the idea of her husband as an elitist dresser amusing, “because I basically buy five of the same suit, and then I patch them up and wear them repeatedly.”

      Continuing his requested sartorial assessment, Obama confessed that he has four pairs of shoes and has recently taken to getting a haircut more frequently because “my mother-in-law makes fun of me.”

      Are we actually debating comments made by Elizabeth Hasselbeck? She is about as intelligent as a baked potato.

      What is it about Alaskan politicians? Palin is given a $150,000 wardrobe, which she wears, but doesn’t own it. Stevens was given furniture, but he doesn’t own it, yet it still sits in his home. Stuff is given to them, but they don’t own it? Steven and Palin must attend the same seminars on electoral ethics, or is this just an Alaska thing?

      See, I hate it when people purposely missunderstand things. I mean could she really be that stupid? Hey hassleback, it would be sexist if somebody said “The outfits she has been wearing make her look fat and her tits too small” but they didn’t say that, they reported that the outfits cost over $150,000 and could be in violation of campaign finance laws. Additionally, the press has been giving Mccain shit about his $500.00 Farragamo loafers. Is THAT sexist?!

      Oh, my! Sexist! You could never accuse the Republican Party of THAT, now, couldya? I mean, look how good they been with women’s rights all these years. As long as you’re a woman without a vagina or sex drive, the Republicans are all for us regular gals! Say it ain’t so, Joe! If I woulda known I would be in so much hot water over this, me and First Dude Tood woulda got that bigass 60″ plasma, too, and charged it to the RNC. My, Bullwinkle would look so cool on a plasma! And think of how nice it’ll be to watch baby videos of Bristol’s little bastard, dontcha know! And how come I’m supposedly from Alaska but speak in this cheesy Wisconsin accent? Of course, next time they wanna buy me any Valentinos or Calvins or Chanels I’ll just say, “thanks, but no thanks!”

      It’s amazing to see how many GOP operatives are dwelling on sites like this. Maybe if you all spent time learning about the issues
      and doing more than sitting in your apartments scratching yourself and posting reactionary posts that are clearly erroneous, you’d
      be aware of the importance of us finally moving the country in a positive direction.

      According to StreetInsider.com today……

      “AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest AIDS organization in the US and operator of the popular and award winning fundraising ‘Out of the Closet’ thrift store chain in California and Florida, will host a press teleconference Monday, October 27th at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time to raise the issue of trademark infringement by a for-profit resale clothing store in Anchorage, Alaska recently cited as a favorite by Republican Vice Presidential candidate Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family. The Alaska store is operating under the same ‘Out of the Closet’ name as AHF’s fundraising chain–which first opened in 1990–and under the same name for which AHF has had registered federal trademark for many years. During the teleconference, AHF officials will also invite Governor Palin and the Republican National Committee (RNC) to consider donating the candidate’s campaign wardrobe to AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s ‘Out of the Closet’ thrift store chain following the election. Revenues generated by AHF’s ‘Out of the Closet’ contribute to caring for AIDS patients in the US and abroad, as well as supporting AHF’s innovative HIV prevention and testing programs worldwide.”

      EH probably doesn’t see anything out of the ordinary in dropping a couple hundred thousand on clothes, so why are they making such a big deal of it when Sarah Palin does it? Obviously, that HAS to be sexist. The only thing worse than a rich bitch idiot is a rich bitch idiot with media access.

      Um, last I heard the criticism was directed at Palin’s handlers and the RNC for spending that kind of money on clothes, when it might have been better spent on things like, oh, media buys in swing states. Where’s the sexism come into play?
