I go for months without saying a word, and then the conventions get me all riled up. Here's the latest.
Remember that weird yellow dress with the winged collar that Cindy McCain wore on Tuesday night? Well, her entire outfit cost her over $300,000.
I am supposed to believe that her husband understands the impact on the economy when she's out there wearing almost 300 grand in jewelry? This kind of largess staggers my mind. With that kind of money, I could pay off my house, my car, and wipe clean all outstanding bills for the rest of the year and STILL have tens of thousands left over.
This is the party that understands the middle class and the working poor?
I can barely wrap my mind around spending the equivalent of three mortgage payments alone on a dress. That pearl necklace would cover daycare costs for three years.
John Edwards got nailed leading up to the primaries for a $400 haircut. McCain can't remember how many houses he owns, and he gets a nomination? Cindy Lou Who spends more than the average 2000 pre-tax income of 99% of Americans on a single outfit for a convention, but Barack and Michelle Obama are the elitists?
I think Strangeite is right about Htrae. I just don't get it.
