New reports show that “Hockey Mom” Sarah Palin spent $32,800 on hair and make-up in just two weeks. At that rate, you buy and could lipstick over 64,000 pigs. You could also pay the annual salary and medical expenses for one average citizen for what Palin spent on hair and make-up in two weeks. In the meantime, Palin has now given her deposition in the troopergate investigation where an investigation has already found that she acted unethically in the firing of a state employee.
This new report comes on the heels of the disclosure that she spent $150,000 on clothes.
Put another way, that is $2342 A DAY. I do not know many hockey mom — they’ll primarily soccer or baseball moms in Northern Virginia. However, it is now clear that they are a real bargain.
The most interesting factoid: Palin’s make-up artist is the highest paid campaign staff member.
