Can't keep a secret, but wants to be VP!!


Palin wardrobe controversy heightens - Todd is a cheapo!

By Jimmy Orr  |  10.26.08

No one is calling Todd Palin cheap or anything, but Todd…. 35 bucks for a wedding ring?

Sarah Palin threw her husband under the bus today and emboldened cheap husbands and boyfriends everywhere by announcing her wedding ring cost $35.  Note that there are no commas in that figure.  Those two numbers stand together.  A three followed by a five.  Then a period.  35 bucks.

On top of this, she announced that Todd didn’t even buy it.  She bought it herself.  Maybe this is why the  Anchorage Daily News endorsed  Barack Obama today.

Financial advice

Are the poll numbers this bad that she is doling out personal financial advice hoping to get a gig on CNBC?

No, she was just bringing up an issue that her campaign doesn’t like the media to cover.  The wardrobe issue.

Ever since Politico’s report that the Republican National Committee doled out $150,000 for Palin’s clothes and accessories, it’s been a big topic on the campaign trail.   Every wardrobe malfunction joke thought to have been dead and buried since the 2004  Super Bowl has regretfully come back to life.

Palin’s view

Today, campaigning with The View co-host  Joy Behar  Elisabeth Hasselbeck in Tampa, the topic of clothes was again addressed.  First by Hasselbeck.

The morning talk show star tore into the media, alleging that reporters would prefer not to cover Palin’s record in Alaska, her credentials in energy policy, or her role in negotiating a $40 billion natural- gas line deal in Alaska.

To a chorus of boos, Hasselbeck said the media is “fixated on her wardrobe” instead.

“Let me tell you this is deliberately sexist,” Hasselbeck said, before discussing the part of Palin’s wardrobe she believes the media should focus on.

“I’m most impressed by her accessories, you know, like the flag pin she wears in honor of her son and our military — men and women — fighting abroad.  And they fight for our every right to be here today,” she added.

Where I shop

Palin told the crowd when deciding what to wear this morning that she grabbed “her own jacket,” emphasizing it was  hers.   Then she thanked Hasselbeck for bringing the issue up as it gave her the opportunity to discuss it “without the filter of the media.”

“Those clothes - they are not my property,” she explained.  “Just like the lighting and the staging and everything else the RNC purchases.  I’m not taking them with me.”

Her clothes

The clothes she was wearing came from her “favorite consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska” Palin announced.

Then she took husband Todd and turned him into a goat in less than 10 seconds.

“My wedding ring, it’s in Todd’s pocket cause it hurts sometimes when I shake hands and it gets squished,” Palin told a crowd in Tampa, Florida. “A $35 wedding ring from Hawaii that I bought myself …’cause I always thought with my ring, it’s not what it’s made of, it’s what it represents and 20 years later, happy to wear it.”

There would be few who would argue that it’s not the ring, it’s what the ring symbolizes.  And after 20 years of marriage, who can argue with her.

But over the course of those 20 years, perhaps an upgrade is in order?  Come on Todd…

How can you give back the $22,000 for the hair stylist services? Millions of Americans don't make that much in 1 year, let alone, 2 weeks like Palin's hair stylist certainly did!!

Besides, her comment about the consignment shop clothes was a clue to let most Americans, not Joe the Plumber of course, realize where they will be shopping if McCain-Palin '08 wins this election.

Thank you, thank you very much.

Something tells me, judging from the Palin-obsession on display here, that you're a secret admirer of hers. And that you read too many liberal web sites.
NBey6Comment by NBey6 - October 28, 2008, 11:21 am
@ Todd - Yes I am concerned with the scary thought that a person who cannot run a tub of bath water without drowning would attempt to be Vice President of this country. Goes to show you where John McCain's mind must be/should be on retiring.

Sarah Palin for petes sake.

The audience of The View on any typical day has a combined IQ of -20. This petty stuff is really important to those who watch The View.

Just as side note, if Barry gets elected there will only one type of wedding ring available and it will be given to the couple by the local cooperative when the marriage is approved by the cooperative, and the ring will be worth about 3 Ameros and made from locally recycled teeth fillings of the deceased.

Nbey6, you are right. I might as well run as Sarah Palin. Had he chosen Lieberman or some other female I was considering voting for him.   I had been following his campaign for the past two years, but he chose the wrong running mate.

NBey6, that is too funny.LOL

"cannot run a tub of bath water without drowning"
ToddComment by Todd - October 28, 2008, 1:33 pm
Actually you would find something else of McCain's to diminish and ridicule if someone else was his VP pick. That's been the liberal M.O. since the start: ridicule. Doing so is a childish way to cover up for the socialist candidate.

Every concern that people are posting about Obama is rooted in fact, and covered up by the media.

What do the liberals discuss? Sarah Palin's clothes. An absolutely *hilarious* statement about John McCain drowning. The price Todd Palin paid for his wife's wedding ring.

If Obama is elected, you will get exactly what you asked for, in spades.
NBey6Comment by NBey6 - October 28, 2008, 2:00 pm
@ Todd - Actually you're wrong. I know why McCain did some of the things he did, to get nominated by his party. I think what Bush did to him to win South Carolina in 2000 was appalling, but he lost me when he picked Sarah Palin and continues to think that Americans are better off by the wealthy continuing to get help they don't need. He said he would run a clean campaign and he has not. I think if I met him today, I would like him as a person, I just don't agree with his some of his politically views.

She's the one who cannot run a tub of bath water without drowning, Sarah Palin.
NBey6Comment by NBey6 - October 28, 2008, 2:04 pm
BTW - Todd, I think Sarah Palin should have never told anyone how much her wedding ring cost because it's irrevelant, let alone that it cost $35.00. Being an open book is not always good, especially at your spouses expense.

People,(republicans) have ridiculed Obama from the moment he stepped into the spot light because of his name. The name that he was given at birth. The name that he had no choice but to carry. People have tried to pin labels on Obama and religions that aren't his own. You (?) say what you wish but don't see how petty it sounds to others that read it.

I use to think that Mccain was an pretty good guy. I was pulling for him during his run for the republican nomination and think that it would have been a tough race had he chosen Romney. (I still would not have voted for him because of party affiliation)
But what happened to him.
I was interviewing a patient yesterday, who started talking about everything other than what he was in the hospital for. He got on the topic of politics, (oh no, here we go) He told me," I'm a republican in every sence of the word, a Vietnam vet and proud of it, But I'll be #@%& if I will vote for McCain!" He said that, "McCain loss my vote when he picked that hullagan that calls herself a lady to run with him. And now look how nasty he is." he said that he loss respect for him, and I couldn't agree with him more.

Average prices for a troy ounce of 24k gold in 1987 $446.46, 1988 $436.94 , 1989 $381.44. An average of those 3 is $421.61 per troy ounce which is 31.1034768 grams of pure gold. At that price one gram of pure gold is $13.80.

Sarah's ring looks to be around 7 grams (heavy for a woman's band). If it's 18k which is 75% pure gold. If 14k it is 58% pure gold. If 10k it is 42% pure gold.

One gram of pure gold is $13.80 averaging 3 years prices above.

$13.80 x 7g = $96.60 x ( 75% if 18k ) = $72.45

$13.80 x 7g = $96.60 x ( 58% if 14k ) = $56.03

$13.80 x 7g = $96.60 x ( 42% if 10k ) = $40.57

For someone not intelligent enough to run bath water, looks like she made a savvy buy and got it for around melt price. ;=D

Nice try konane.
konaneComment by konane - October 28, 2008, 3:41 pm
Show a pawn broker or any 'cash for gold' buyers those figures and ask their expertise.   Have a friend who for years bought gold for melt .... taught me the basics of how to figure actual gold worth on a ring containing no stones. Sorry you didn't understand the math.

My guess is Sarah's ring is 10k no more than 14k due to the durability of lesser gold content.

Have an early 60's 10k ring which takes a beating and keeps on going. Has lab grown stones in it ... paid $65 on ebay about 7 years ago. Wear it all the time.

Actually, pettiness is in the eye of the beholder. You see I like the name Barry (nickname for Barrack), it is what he chose to call himself in his younger days before he fell under the spell of the leftist ideology. Kinda like Ernie before he gave himself the nickname "Che", you see Ernie's real name was Ernesto Guevara before he became Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Barry also reminds me of Barry White, Barry Williams, Barry Bonds, Barry Sanders, Chuck Barry etc. It isn't "ridicule" Litebets, it is an endearment, and if ridicule, is all you can see, then so be it. His leftist influences and agenda mean nothing to you, it is all about his stupid GDAM name, figures.

Every vet I know is voting for McCain, WW2, Korea, Veitnam, Gulf War, present wars, all of them are voting McCain, and it ain't because Barry chose Joey.

I chose not to use Barry's given middle nickname "The Hustler", short for Hussein. He hustled Illinois, and right now, Barry and $700,000,000 are hustling the US presidential election.

Those who don't know what being "hustled" is, will find out soon enough, if Barry is elected.

MD. was hustled by Martin O'Mallley, MD. was in the black and quite prosperous under Ehrlich, after being hustled by O'Malley, Sarbanes, Van Hollen and Mikulsky etc. MD is in the red big time, MD democrats are gluttons for punishment.

Slots ain't gonna fix this one: http://www.wjla.com/news/stories/1008/562683.html

This is how dem/fascist/socialist MD. plans on solving a fiscal crisis, with slots!!!!!!!!!!!! I am voting against slots, they just want to suque the monet out of the people of DC, VA, and MD., to FIX the deficit, very, very..... petty plan. There are other ways to do it....................

Barry's comments and the dem/socialist agenda should be studied very carefully, forget about the names.
Litebets27Comment by Litebets27 - October 28, 2008, 9:27 pm
@jarasen. I was addressing Todds' comment. second, Obamas family gave him that nickname which was also used by the African side of the family. Third, the mess in maryland was inherited by O'Malley, and Ehrlich was campaigning for slots which we the voters didn't go for it. Maryland was going in the red under the policies that Ehrlich adopted.
Don't forget, "McClain"rushed back to DC and wanted to postpone the debate to vote for that $700,000,000 bailout in it's first draft which would have been a real disaster had it been pass.
I can't understand why and how anyone is enjoying the mess this country is in now and want to continue running down the same path. Frankly, Obama will be inheriting a tremendous mess, which has been produced by the current administration in DC. I know all of you out there who have short-term memory will forget where the mess has come from and try desperatly to pin it on Obama when he can't turn it around the second he gets into office.
I was recently watching an interview of soldiers that had just returned from Iraq. The majority said that they were voting for Obama. And speaking of mess.....
I have been a nurse for 35 years. The area that I practice in has a large population of uninsured citizens, but those that are insured are having more difficulty paying the medical bills that they accur. I'm finding myself having to call for vouchers for medications, treatments and rides home that patients can't afford. The hospital is eating more bills then ever before. Hospitals get so much funding that helpd in this department, but even that runs out. Something has to be done about this situation and McCains' proposal will make the situation worse. $5.000, a drop in the bucket. I've had to call several drug manufactures to enlist patients on special programs that help to pay for several meds that are priced at $65.00 to 72.00 a pill or injection. The pill, Zyvox is usually taken twice a day for 4-6 weeks depending on the infection and it's location. You do the math. that $5.000 won't go far, will it.
