While the GOP spent all night trying to paint Barack Obama as an elitist, Cindy McCain’s outfit cost more than the combined income of Michelle and Barack Obama in 2004. In fact it would take 10 years of saving for the average American to afford her outfit.
Oscar de la Renta dress: 3,000 Dollars
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: 4,500 Dollars
Three-carat diamond earrings: 280,000 Dollars
Four-strand pearl necklace: 11,000–25,000 Dollars
Shoes, designer unknown: 600 Dollars
Total: Between 299,100 and 313,100 dollars
Being rich and out of touch with real Americans….Priceless
In an era when many Americans are having their houses foreclosed and cannot afford to pay for their kids college education, Cindy McCain was wearing the equivalent of a 5 bedroom house. Her outfit could have paid for 3 students to go to Harvard. Where are the Republicans who criticized John Edwards and John Kerry for their expensive outfits?
In contrast, Michelle Obama’s outfit from her guest slot on The View cost 148 Dollars. That means Cindy McCain could have bought 2,000 of Michelle Obama’s dresses, enough to give one to every woman over 25 in the town Sarah Palin was Mayor of.
Is Cindy McCain a modern day Marie Antoinette, living in extravagant luxury while her country suffers? How will the GOP spin their attacks on Obama being elitist and out of touch when Cindy McCain could feed a small African country for a week with her dress
