Skip to comments.Palin stylist draws higher pay than policy adviser (BREAKING HAIR NEWS ALERT!)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An acclaimed celebrity makeup artist for Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin collected more money from John McCain's campaign than his foreign policy adviser.
Amy Strozzi, who works on the reality show "So You Think You Can Dance" and has been Palin's traveling stylist, was paid $22,800, according to campaign finance reports for the first two weeks in October. In contrast, McCain's foreign policy adviser, Randy Scheunemann, was paid $12,500, the report showed.
In recent days, McCain and his running mate have tried to douse a furor over how their side spent their money. The Republican National Committee came under scrutiny after the party committee reported earlier this week that it had spent about $150,000 in September on wardrobe and cosmetics after Palin joined the GOP ticket.
In an interview with the Chicago Tribune and Fox News on Thursday, Palin said the clothes bought for the Republican National Convention were not worth $150,000 and said most have not left her campaign plane. She also said the family shops frugally.

Well this shows that women do get higher pay than men.
Whatever that pay to keep Palin looking great, they are getting their money’s worth.
“McCain and his running mate have tried to douse a furor over how their side spent their money.”
Who’s business is this? Ask Hussein to produce his BIRTH CERTIFICATE. (Or find his Indonesian passport)
Biden spends more on booze than his hair.
where is this info coming from and why is it coming out now?
any information on where Nobama’s money is going??
Policy advisors are cheap in Washington. Good stylists are hard to find.
Never mind the stylists, how much did OBiden’s hair cost?
So we were chided for joking about John Edwards’ haircuts because those were distractions....but the MSM now finds relevance in Palin’s hair and wardrobe
I fully expect to read tommorrow about how the Obama campaign is spending their money... NOT!
Maybe this is the stylist who used to work for Edwards.
They’ve really painted themselves into a corner on this one. Attacking a woman’s hair and wardrobe looks sexist. Besides, every man knows that women’s hair and clothes cost more. It’s not news. By the same token, remember Kerry’s hair stylist flap? It just make the dems look like girly men.
first her clothes and now her hair
just when you think the media couldn’t go any more to the sewer they do
obama is sitting in a terrorist home
obama used tax money to go to Kenya to support a radical killer
the list is endless but no wait Palins hairstylists got so much money
what a pathetic bunch of idiots we have now in the media
The foreign policy adviser makes up the difference in tips.
What is with all the hokie attacks??? We were told that THE ONE is going to win by over 500 electoral votes...so what is with all the panic from the Pravda media???
$5.3 million for the Barackopolis. The libs should worry about their guy. We’ll worry about Sarah, thanks.
And the average female on McCain’s staff has higher salary than the average male and has a higher position. Why hasn’t our crack MSM discovered that?
Until Hillary called him out and its VOTER FRAUD TO ACORN.
And Joe Biden still said something he should not have said. Talking about Sarah Palin will not change that.
Gore hired a fashion stylist for 180,000.00 a year. Donna Brazille cut her pay to “only” 60,000.00.
produce his BIRTH CERTIFICATE. (Or find his Indonesian passport)
how about the tax money to Kenya, how did he use money to go back to HI yesterday
what about supporting a killer and radical in Kenya
infact why no Kenya facts have been told
what about obama unable to produce where all of his money came from
the list is endless but the media go after her hair
this is just now pathetic
Well, we know for sure that michelle’s spending obama’s money on champagne and caviar brunches while lounging in ritzy hotels.
Actually that is a pretty smart campaign. The stylist will probably get more votes for the ticket than the policy wonks.
Policy wonks are a dime a dozen.
A great Hairdresser should be coddled - tipped in gold - set on a pedestal and worshipped.
It is truly a crisis of major proportions when the person you trust with your hair, quits the salon and goes 50 miles away.
Viva All (really good) Hairdressers!
Excuse me, but is this really important???????
Yikes. I guess we don’t know that after all. :/
Is the stylist a contractor who hires additional contractors to complete other functions?
For example, Stylist A is paid by the McCain campaign for her services like a construction contractor. That person then pays 5 people to do X, 3 people to do Y, etc. Although on the report, it looks like you are hiring one person, you are actually hiring a service that employs many people.
Versus a campaign adviser is one person.
I’ll gladly pay twice as much for a skill rather than an opinion. Lefties think opinions are of value inherently rather than value judged.
Hairgate 2008 continues...
McCain doesn’t desperately NEED foreign policy advisors like Obama does. No wonder they think this is an outrage.
BTW, Sarah’s still as SMOKIN’ HOT as she ever was, SMOKIN’ HOT as she ever was....
Excuse me, but is this really important???????
To AP, Amalgamated Propaganda, it is. ;-)
I always notice Nancy Pelosi is wearing the largest pearls I’ve ever seen! And she wear the tahitian pearls that are gray, but are shiny and glow with differnt colors.
They are beautiful, and a regular size necklace of that type can cost $1,800.00, with the really good kinds $10,000 plus.
What would the HUGE pearl necklace cost?
ROTFLMAO!!! True! Very, very true! I have witnessed first hand what miracles a touch notch Hollywood makeup artist can do. It's worth the money.
And....how much did John Edwards pay his < airquotes> Videographer < /airquoates>? $100,000?
So Obama is a socialist and Sarah has nice hair. Got it.
Do you object to Obama funneling American taxpayer dollars to his real native homeland of Kenya?
So, the article is telling us that a white collar worker is always worth more than a blue collar worker...and the irony is that the media is trying to help a friggin MARXIST get elected. Elitism and class warfare is alive and well in the media.
Discussing her personal style, Obama said it was flattering to be compared to former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Its fun to look pretty, she said, noting that mixes up her style with the assistance of Chicago-based stylist Maria Pinto.
The poor wretches in the media want to destroy Palin's character because she represents the greatest threat on earth to them. Sarah Palin's wonderful, glowing personna reflects on the dark souls of these wretches, and not liking what they see they prefer to extinguish the light rather than live with their guilt. Make no mistake about it, this battle goes beyond politics, it's a battle royale between the forces of good and evil. Now, perhaps, those Americans who wondered to themselves why government and the media have labored together this last generation to extinguish Christianity by criminalizing its public expression and marginalizing its benefit to us are beginning to see why. A country founded on Christian beliefs, morals and values, cannot long survive once those beliefs and values have been supplanted by secular humanism. People thought America was immune from major disasters, especially political upheaval.... now we know better. But is it too late?
do I object that obama used tax money to go to Kenya, ?
Do I object that obama would use American tax money to help Odinga?
Do I objest that obama would send American tax money to help Odinga’s govt
ER YES YES and YES
Definitely it is important to the propagand wing of the DNC, the Mainstream Media.
