The Price of Being Common

I might post some brief thoughts about Joe Biden soon, and I'm certainly not going to post any more promises of no politics until nearer to the election. (Sue me -- the blog can't be exclusively devoted to albums I fell in love with at college, no matter how desperately you might want that.)

For now, a quick item on Sarah Palin:

Say what you will about the Alaskan governor, she doesn't need a lot of money to look good. But, hey, if the campaign wants to dump nearly $150,000 at Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus to give her that extra edge, fine. Really. Campaigns spend tons of money on all kinds of things. Tell you what, though -- if you're spending that much money on clothes (at Saks! in midtown Manhattan!), you're disqualified from constantly equating yourself with common folk. Deal?
