Own your own pair of almost VP shoes, don't ya know!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2703...

After laughing my ass off over the fact that Sarah Palin was wearing shoes from a brand called "Naughty Monkey", I started wondering if this isn't some kind of an ethics violation. Can a family member sell stuff like this for a profit and it's ok? I have no idea and figured someone here could answer the question for me.

Me thinks the high bidders in this case are Repugs with a foot fetish. :puke:

1. You beat me to it.

Pat Buchanan and El Rushbo will end up buying all of them then spend hours in their basements with Kleenex, a bottle of lotion, and Sarah Palin's worn high heels. :puke:

3. gotta love the spelling on that - and so much for charity...
"Up for bid are thee actual Red Naughty Monkey Heels owned/worn by Sarah Palin. I got the shoes from Aunt Sarah after mentioning that I liked them. They dont fit to well, so I decided to let someone else enjoy them."

4. I'm the High Bidder!!!
Just kidding...

I can't blame the niece for wanting to cash in, and I can't blame some who got caught up in the celebrity of all this.

Ignorance is not a crime, it's just a sadness.

5. I don't really blame the niece either
But the listing said that the winner of the shoes could have them signed by Palin if they wanted. That seems a bit off to me.
