This isn't a political tidbit. I'll just chalk it up to amazement and leave the value judgments to the rest of you. Vanity Fair tallied up the cost of one of Cindy McCain's outfits at the Convention: $300,000..
$280,000 of that are two 3 carat diamond earrings. Even without that, when was the last time "someone just like you" spent on an ensemble what I spent on my entire wedding? (and my wedding wasn't cheap according to most Americans).
