And Who's the Elitist? Cindy McCain Outfit Estimated to Cost $300,000

A recent post on Vanity Fair's website estimates that Cindy McCain's RNC outfit cost a mere $300,000. I hope that a President McCain would spend our tax dollars as thoughtfully. According to Vanity Fair's sartorial analysis:

Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500
Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000
Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000
Shoes, designer unknown: $600
Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100

I find it fascinating that the husband of a woman following in Imelda Marcos' footsteps can claim to be a man of the people. God Bless America and our perverse take on class consciousness.
