[QUOTE=Batmans A Scientist;2819150]I'm voting for Obama, but WHO CARES! Why does this matter to anyone?[/QUOTE]
Because it's an example of stunningly bad judgment in the middle of a presidential election. Because it's a serious political misstep that undermines Palin's carefully crafted "just an average soccer mom" image. Because it reinforces the picture of Palin as a self-entitled elected official who bills taxpayers for personal expenses.
Compared to the real issues, I agree, it's a zero. But bear in mind, Palin isn't running on the issues...she's running on image alone. And it's hard to claim you're a pragmatic penny-pincher when you blow 150 large on clothes in less than two months.
