    That's pretty baller. If you got the money, why not spend it?

    I agree it's ugly.

    But just think of all the tax revenue.

    I honestly don't know Bit.

    Can you explain why it is elitist to me, so I can understand?

    And can you tell us how much Michelle Obama's Wardrobe costs, and if/if not that too is "elitist"?

    Thanks, I appreciate being educated on this topic.

    The dress Michelle wore on The View was less than $200 I think, not sure about the convention.

    Too bad money doesn't buy taste. I would kill for those earrings though :D

    wearing anything north of 300k is elitist... Laura Bush's outfit from the same night, at a couple k, is much more main-stream and I doubt Michelle's was much higher

    What's wrong with stimulating the economy? The sales tax alone probably paid the salary of a state employee. This is a perfect example of the economic benefit of tax cuts. Thanks Bit.

    So 300k is the cut-off?

    What if she took off her watch and left it backstage? Instantly non-elitist?

    no 300k is a high water mark though... it's up there I'm sure with the most valuable ensembles

    the cut-off would be a small percentage of that 300k... at least if I was making the cut-off

    The estimate was between $299,100 and $313,100 so assuming the pearls were on the cheaper end, she is a non-elitist.

    Without those earrings she's downright middle class.

    Beyond the amusement value, this is obviously not an issue that ought to sway the vote of anyone with an IQ over 12.

    It is "elitist" because her husband has made quite a bit of noise painting his opponent as out of touch on economic issues. When your wife's outfit costs something like 6x the median household income, and you can't say off the top of your head how many houses you own, its the sort of argument that comes off a little silly.

    That said, Cindy McCain has never pretended to be anything other than a rich heiress who inherited an enormously profitable monopoly business, so more power to her.

    She is "authentic," in her own way.
