That's a lot of lipstick

As the saying goes, you can't make up this stuff. Adding to the irony of America's number Hockey Mom's transformation from down home pit bull to primped up power poodle, the most recent expense filings show the highest paid individual in the McCain campaign this month was Sarah Palin's traveling make-up artist. Amy Strozzi "was paid $22,800 for the first two weeks of October alone" under the cryptic heading, “PERSONNEL SVC/EQUIPMENT.” Talk about your rags to riches story. Eliza Doolittle never had it so good.

Meanwhile, the one angle that the major media seems to be missing is McCain's cosmetic costs. The September filings indicate he spent $8,672.55 on make-up for himself in September. That's a lot of pancake, my friends.
