You’ve Been On Too Many Catalogue Sprees, Schtupid.

In America, we like to tack the suffix “-gate” at the end of nouns to mark something as politically scandalous or problematic: Watergate, Monicagate, Slaverygate (last one courtesy of Stephen Colbert). Sarah Palin already has two -gates to her name, and she’s not even in the White House. First, Troopergate, now Fashiongate.

Frankly, all her outfits are so similar that I thought that she was dyeing them every night. But $150,000? That $150,000 could solve so many of my problems. (Or just one big one: rhymes with “student moans.”) I hate her so much. Buy your own damn clothes, lady! Or just get some from Zara or Ann Taylor or Banana Republic. It’ll cost the RNC less while failing to appeal to Joe Six-Pack.

Or, use the money to buy a clue. (Oooo.)

In dishonor of La Palin, I’ve put together a little grime salute from across the North Sea. I didn’t intend for these to be British, it just happened that way. All I’m saying is that the woman could fix up, look sharp and throw on a ten dollar hoodie.
