Trashed $180K worth of Palin's clothes reportedly in garbage bags
Source: N:Y Daily News

Where are many of these infamous clothes now? In trash bags!
...

NewMajority is reporting that roughly $180,000 worth of clothing worn by Sarah Palin during her Republican vice presidential bid is stuffed in trash bags at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington D.C.

Palin promised to donate her wardrobe to charity following the campaign, and she did give the clothes to the RNC so they could handle the donation process, according to NewMajority. But apparently, the RNC did no such thing, as the clothes are still in their headquarters in garbage bags.

1. Beautiful. How very GOP. I wanted to say
something about how nice it would be if Ms. Fascist Cutie-Pie was stuffed in a trash bag, but goshers, that would be like shooting fish in a barrel, dontcha know. Or wolves from a helicopter.

6. Betya they could pick up the phone and any # of charities would .....
..... come and pick them up. The Kidney Foundation in Columbus, OH does
this all the time ...... A jobs program would take 'em too.

"They" are so with out shame it is not funny .... I bet that RNC women pick
over the clothes themselves.

24. My theory is that they were hoping enough time would pass without anyone asking about them that they
could auction off the clothes to pay off some RNC campaign debt instead of giving them to an actual charity.

25. I agree w/your theory - thought the same thing
They'll go for the money from an auction.

Hey, they need to continue to help fund Norm Coleman's recount.

7. Weren't they supposed to go to charity?
On another note, it reminds me of the dust up over the flags supposedly thrown out after the Democratic Convention.

8. Oh, lighten up!!!
They probably folded them up, or just kinda wadded them up neatly before they crammed them into the bags.

Thank you Sarah, for helping make Barack Obama POTUS.

found and then stole several trash bags of rolled up American flags after the Denver convention?

14. Let's see.... the Election was over by Nov 5....
That's GOP efficiency for you.

They're probably thinking about raffling them them at a private fundraiser.
Lord knows she cost them big.

16. waiting for someone
To throw a lavish charity auction dinner and sell them to a bunch of rich ladies and give the money left over to some charity that a bunch of selfish jerks can agree on. They are looking to get something in return for donating them.

17. As pissed off as their donors are, all I have to ask is
how hard would it be to find some wooden ("NO WIRE HANGERS!!") hangers to place these clothes until a decision was made. For fuck's sake, the GOP really don't care about anybody, EVEN thsir own donors!

23. Several charities here have dropoff boxes
There's one about a mile from here at the Canadian Tire. It looks like a large mailbox and you just open the chute and dump it in.

43. The front is probably all stretched out.
Because I doubt that there were ever girl parts in there.

With a face like that, I imagine the nether-regions are, well, a little "bulkier."

Its just that they can't find any Republican non-profit organization that helps out the disadvantaged in society.
