Hypocrisy?

Much was made about the fact that the McCain campaign spent $150,000 on a wardrobe for Sarah
Palin.

Why is nothing bad said about Michelle Obama's $1,500 dress? Instead, the press falls over themselves in pointing out that the Obamas are setting the fashion trend of America.

This, after the same paper said:

"There's this big shift right now going on in the country, " Finney said. "Women are beginning to realize you can be fabulous and you don't have to spend a lot of money. For the governor, I could have found her a new suit for every day of the month, including the weekends, and it still would have been less than $10,000."

It appears as though that same $10,000 will buy Michelle Obama about a 4 day wardrobe. Of course, the press is not biased or anything.

Not to mention that it looked an awful lot like Nancy Reagan's first inaugural dress.
