I receive regular e-mail updates on something called the Thai-Indian News. It tells me what is being reported in newspapers in India and South Asia. Yesterday's edition led with:
"Sarah Palin and John McCain spent $52,000 on make-up in six weeks."
Isn't it nice that the US election campaigns are becoming the laughing stock of the world at large?
Somehow, I imagine that, had Barack Obama just spent $150,000 on a wardrobe, or that his campaign had spent $52,000 on make-up for, say, his wife, Fox (pseudo) News would have gone ballistic.
Is this what Sarah and Senator John mean when they tell us they are "mavericks"?
