 One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family—clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill....."Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast," and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books.

Subject: Obama's been elected. Should All Hat No Cattle Stay Online?


Hi, Lisa.

Yes, indeed, we need you to continue. There will be a terrible right wing back lash and it's already started. The KKK, I hear, is vigorously recruiting new members. One of my students told me this morning that she received an email today comparing Obama to Hitler. Our real effort is just beginning. Please, please keep up your wonderful work.

(A contribution is on the way!)




I’m a regular reader and unfortunately very irregular contributor, but I really want you to be able to keep going. As long as there are politicians, there will be politicians who desperately need to be ridiculed. And you do it so well






Thank you for what you've done. I hope you continue, but even if you don't, I hope my contribution helps.







We need places like All Hat to help folks keep dialogue in this nation active. And to point out where it is not. Rove and Palin are still out there and are only catching their breath.








What??? Leave now? We need you more than ever now that Obama has been elected. Who's gonna watch those angry elephants!






Thank you all for your support! I think I have the most wonderful viewers.
