So what?

The enemies of conservatism in the mainstream news media are today pouncing on this story:

"The Republican National Committee spent about $150,000 on clothing, hair styling, makeup and other "campaign accessories" in September for the McCain campaign after Palin, the governor of Alaska, joined the ticket."

And the answer to this should be: so freaking what???
Does anyone realize how much the OBAMA campaign is spending during this election season, on ads, on everything? It's literally hundreds of millions of dollars. Our friends on the left have been roaring at us for years about how terrible it is that we have all this money in politics. The Obama campaign this cycle, meanwhile, is awash in it, spending it like drunken sailors, opting out of taking federal monies and accepting federal guidelines after they promised they wouldn't, and now they want to big deal out of the RNC spending a measly $150,000?

What a laugh. Fundamental: don't let Democrats put you on the defensive with this nonsense. Instead, remind them of their own hypocrisy on the larger issue: campaign spending.
