Daily Briefs: Sumo wrestling with Team Plog

By CHRIS PACKHAM

Well, here we are, a day after the New York Post‘s Page Six was forced to angrily retract %{[ data-embed-type=”image” data-embed-id=”57150c4e89121ca96b962400″ data-embed-element=”aside” ]}%a fake story based on a bad tip that Michelle Obama had stayed at the fancy and mythical Waldorf-Astoria elf lodge, where she ordered up the “lobster and caviar” via a magickal summoning called “room service.” And then it turns out that the Republican National Committee actually in real-life spent $150,000 to outfit the filthy Alaskan Palin family in their richie executive branch disguises.

According to Politico, the RNC listed the expenditures in the September monthly financial disclosure report as “campaign accessories” under “itemized coordinated expenditures,” where campaigns generally list stuff like direct mail and telephone costs. Payments were made to fancy Barney’s New York, fancy Bloomingdale’s New York and fancy Atelier, perhaps also in New York. Because, you guys, you can’t shop at Fashion Bug in the heart of “real America” like some kind of “Joe Six-Pack Hobo” unless you’re running for President of Osh Kosh B’Gosh. The best part is that because the clothes are owned by the RNC, they have to be returned and will be donated to charity, winding up in the wardrobe of some big-city illegal Mexican immigrant on welfare who will wear them down to the abortion clinic.
