Everything you need to know about and expect during
the most important election of our lifetimes

Thought we'd give you a respite from hearing about the fair Governor from Alaska after yesterday's loss? Think again! There's a new report that Palin spent even more than the widely-reported $150,000 on her wardrobe makeover. According to Newsweek, "One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family — clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill. Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent ‘tens of thousands’ more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband." [Newsweek via Think Progress]

I posted this in Crappy Hour, and it will be my motto for the next couple of months:

This is stupid, because the movie isn't really my taste (oddly, it's one of my husband's favorites), but when I heard what Obama won, I immediately thought of Sarah Palin and this, from "Ever After":

I want you to know that I will forget you after this moment, and never think of you again. But you, I am quite certain, will think about me every single day for the rest of your life.
