9. A hick like Sarah may not know about the counterfeit bag issue.
But then again, as a Republican, the odds are she doesn't care. I had to explain to my friends on a trip to NYC that those bags are often made by children or slave labor, and that they were committing copyright fraud.

My Louis Vuitton bags were made in the USA and France, and the craftmanship is heads above any of the crap made in China. Do you know hard it is to find a leather or canvas bag NOT made in China or the third world? Coach, Nine West,and Cole Haan manufacture all their bags and shoes in the third world now.

My LV bags are close to five years old with barely a scratch, AND Louis Vuitton repairs and replaces any of the hardware. This is the kind of service-and craftsmanship-that you don't find in our 'throwaway' society, where you can get a leather bag for $29.99 in TJ Maxx and toss it when the strap breaks.

If the RNC allowed her to run up a huge bill at Saks and Neimans, the least she could do is buy a REAL bag. They fetch a pretty price if she wants to resell it on eBay, like she did with the plane. :eyes:
