I love makeup as much as many women do, but I about spilled my coffee this morning when I heard that McCain’s campaign spent $22,800 in the first two weeks of October for Governor Sarah Palin’s makeup stylist. Makeup stylist Amy Strozzi was the highest paid staffer working for McCain during this critical period of McCain’s presidential campaign. Forget the high level strategists, PR people, or policy analysts… the high dollar prize went to the makeup artist! I keep hearing about how attractive Palin is from men all over the political spectrum, but if she’s so hot, why does she need $22K for makeup styling? We all know the power of well applied makeup, but please! This ridiculous expense tells me a lot about this campaign’s priorities, especially when McCain made a big stink about suspending his campaign last month because of the financial crisis. Financial crisis be damned when you have to focus on the more important things like makeup, right?
