Sarah Palin's stylist highest paid campaign staffer

Filed under: Life & Style, In The News

Sarah PalinIn the first two weeks of October, the highest paid member of the McCain campaign staff wasn't a pollster, or a strategiest. It wasn't a bodyguard or a trusted campaign aid. The highest paid member of the McCain team was Sarah Palin's makeup artist.

Amy Strozzi, who was nominated for an Emmy for her work on the reality show "So You Think You Can Dance?" has been traveling with the Governor as she campaigns for the White House. Records released this week show that she was paid $22,800 for the first half of October. A hairstylist, Angela Lew, was paid $10,000 for the same period.

Critics claim that Palin's recent cosmetic indulgences -- $150,000 worth of new clothes, personal stylists -- are detracting from her Hocky Mom image. But is it possible that America's Hocky Moms see in Sarah Palin what they aspire to themselves?

What do you think -- is this a case of a campaign gone awry, or a mom getting some well-deserved pampering?
