Sarah Palin's lipstickgate!

Remember when Sarah Palin talked about being a plain old hockey mom, a self-described pitbull with lipstick?

Well today we learned that Ms. Palin's been buying a whole lot of lipstick, and rouge too.

Or at least her traveling makeup artist, Amy Strozzi, was.

Now hockey moms know all about traveling teams. But traveling makeup artists? Not so much.

It turns out that Ms. Strozzi was the highest paid McCain staffer for the first two weeks of October taking home a sweet $22,800.

Not only that. Ms. Palin also has a traveling hair stylist, Angela Lew. She pocketed another $10,000.

And earlier this week we learned that the Republican Party dropped a cool $150,000 at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, not your typical hockey mom turf, outfitting Palin.

Of course, the serious issue is the McCain campaign's hypocrisy in trying to paint Senator Barack Obama as an out of touch elitist when it is John "I don't know how many houses I own" McCain and Sarah "Neiman Marcus" Palin who have tastes the rest of could only dream about.
