The Neiman Marxist in the Presidential Race

New website game highlights Palin's shopping spree

OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Take $150,000. You could either clothe 15,000 registered nurses in scrubs, pay for a lot of medications or flu shots, or dress your vice-presidential candidate in an incredibly expensive wardrobe.

A new internet game posted this morning by the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, http://www.DressLikePalin.com, lets web users themselves find other uses for the shopping spree the Republican National Committee famously spent on wardrobe and makeup for Gov. Sarah Palin.

"The secret is out. There is a Marxist in the Presidential race. She's just not on the Democratic ticket. The real Marxist is in the McCain camp, the Neiman Marxist adorned in that fetching $150,000 wardrobe," says CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro.

"It's extremely disingenuous to paint yourself as a 'hockey mom' or the voice of 'Joe Six Pack' when you're strutting around in a $150,000 outfit," said DeMoro.

"Real working people live and dress far differently," DeMoro noted. The $150,000 shopping spree amounts to, as Sam Stein noted on Huffington Post, more than the average American household spends on clothes in 80 years. The same $150,000 could buy 15,000 chef coats, 5,769 painter's bibs, 5,000 police shirts, 4,687 auto mechanics' coveralls, 3,750 pilot uniforms, or 3,571 housekeeper uniforms.

"How disgraceful at a time when so many Americans are struggling to pay their medical bills or keep their homes," added Geri Jenkins, RN, co-president of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee.

"Palin's Tahari skirt suit ... Total wardrobe = 15,000 scrubs"

The $22,800 the RNC spent on makeup, for example, would pay for 224 mammograms, 651 flu shots, or provide a supply of cholesterol lower Lipitor for one person for nearly 1
