John Edwards’ $400 haircut is looking like a bargain. New finance reports show that the Republican National Committee spent almost $55,000 on a fashion stylist for vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The McCain campaign also paid Palin’s traveling hair stylist and makeup artist more than $110,000 for about two months of work, the New York Times reported. And even after the controversy about the RNC spending $150,000 on clothes and accessories for Palin and her family, the spending continued. McCain’s staffers appear to have spent about $23,000 on Palin at stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, according to new finance reports. The spending apparently has shocked even Palin. A former senior adviser for the campaign said in a statement that Palin “is absolutely appalled at the news and the amount of money reportedly spent on the vice presidential campaign.”
