Lipstick on a Pig

Why didn't we see this coming? It's another example of how Caribou Barbie is just like every other normal Joe Six-Pack in the country. It looks like the highest paid member of the McCain campaign is Sarah Palin's makeup artist. Makeup artist?
Ms. Strozzi, who was nominated for an Emmy award for her makeup work on the television show “So You Think You Can Dance?”, was paid $22,800 for the first two weeks of October alone, according to the records. The campaign categorized Ms. Strozzi’s payment as “PERSONNEL SVC/EQUIPMENT.” The payment on Oct. 10 made Ms. Strozzi the single highest-paid individual in the campaign for that two-week period. (There were more than two dozen companies that got larger payments than Ms. Strozzi). She easily beat out Mr. Scheunemann, who received $12,500 in the first half of October, and Ms. Wallace, who got $12,000.
If Sarah Pain is so pretty and has all this "experience" as a beauty contestant, why does she even need makeup?
