"Palin makes lemonade out of wardrobe lemons

This is a totally brilliant political move: Last week's revelation that the Republican National Committee had spent $150,000 in campaign funds to dress Palin in designer duds was a blow to her image as a just-folks "hockey mom." The haute couture made her look like a phony and ate up a news cycle.
Now she's wearing consignment-shop clothes and casual wear, which squares with the image she wants to project and -- here's the brilliant part -- reinforces the idea that, given the chance, she rebels against insiders and conventional Washington wisdom.
