Palin's red Naughty Monkey shoes for sale on eBay
The red Naughty Monkey pumps Sarah Palin was wearing when John McCain announced her as his running mate are for sale on eBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Sarah-Palin%27s-Red-Naughty-Monkey-...

Blecch! Imagine - Palin foot odor!! Plus, they could be spattered with moose blood! <Retch>

Some Republican foot fetishist will no doubt obtain these and keep them in a hermetically sealed glass case, only bringing them out to be fondled and worshipped in private ceremonies.

Oh, yeah -- this guy.

6. Another genius in the family
I just read the text of the ebay listing and the alleged relative definitely has the Palin command of English.

10. When did these ugly shoes become famous?
I heard about the idiot Palin buying overpriced expensive clothes with the RNC campaign funds but were the shoes special or something?

17. It's a family of grifters.
Don't the shoes belong the RNC?

Or did that come later?

24. No, I think they're bidding on their own item, shilling.
Other family members or friends with fresh accounts trying to give the appearance of interest in the item where there is none.

27. The astericks are there to provide privacy for the bidders. It is suspicious
that all the bidders have low feedback.
