Mind the Gap!

While Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has blown $150k on a fashion spree since her nomination, the Obama family's fashion tastes appear rather more modest, as this video from July makes clear:



And if you want a further contrast between the campaigns, check out Obama's shoes.

Well...a couple of (not very serious) points...

I'm guessing that Alaska has different clothing attitudes to the lower states meaning that Palin has probably needed to make up a deficit in this campaign.

She has probably spent more on a decent gun in the past year that a honing down a wardrobe for when she runs for the high office she's had her eye on since the day she was born - I know I have.

And while we're on Alaska, I caught this and found it amusing...can't imagine why, living in Scotland and all...

Finally, is this Obama worship for real? I'm not particularly pro-Obama but neither am I particularly anti but there does seem to be a vaguely hysterical tone to the coverage of him at the moment - the kind of tone that people look back on an wonder what they were thinking of at the time. But I would probably say that if Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha announced a new tour together.
