Oh no! Cindy McCain and Laura Bush wore expensive clothes!!!
That’s what Vanity Fair is crying about, along with ignorant liberals who will grasp on to any story to make a Republican look bad, no matter how insignificant. What’s funny is that they provide a disclaimer at the end of the article saying that the prices are only estimates and that they are only assuming the jewelry is real. I’m guessing they’re also assuming the clothing is not ripped off as well. Either way, it doesn’t matter to me. But it’s humorous that they’re attacking them for something that they don’t even know to be true. But that’s how those mindless liberals do it! Here’s the detailed list of the clothing they were supposedly wearing at the Republican National Convention, and the respective price tags:
Oscar de la Renta suit: $2,500
Stuart Weitzman heels: $325
Pearl stud earrings: $600–$1,500
Total: Between $3,425 and $4,325
Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500
Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000
Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000
Shoes, designer unknown: $600
Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100
That is so horrible ! How dare they have a lot of money and then spend it! Just who do they think they are? You know, I wish I had so much money that I could buy ridiculously expensive clothes without a thought. But I don’t. But neither am I a jealous Commie who doesn’t think that it’s fair and who feels that they should be condemned for having the privilege to do so. These idiots should be thanking them for buying such expensive clothing. After all this talk about the economy being in such bad shape (which I’m sure the liberals blame on Bush), we should be grateful for this little economic boost they’ve given us by throwing their hundreds of thousands of dollars back into the mix.
You know, I think this pretty much supports the theory of trickle-down economics. If you give people more money to spend, they’ll spend it. Don’t tax the hell out of the wealthy so that they can afford to pump more of their money back into the economy. That was a big part of what Reaganomics was about. People bashed him for it, yet it worked. Apparently the liberals who think it is some elitist Republican effort to help their rich friends forgot that even JFK promoted that theory with his proposed tax cuts.
