CBS Ruthlessly Outs "Out of the Closet"!!!

Quelle horreur! The tally of economic crimes committed by this moose-loving populist continues to mount!

Sarah Palin attempted to squash sartorial criticism this weekend when she told a crowd her favorite store's a consignment shop, not fancy stores like the ones the RNC patronized when picking her campaign duds.

We're not sure if the comment changed any minds about Palin's $150,000 wardrobe, but it spurred CBS Early Show's crack team to track down the store, Anchorage's Out of the Closet.

Does that name sound familiar? It should - that's the name of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation's chain of thrift shops, all of which benefit the group's good cause.

Well, the AHF is not amused by this coincidence and has sent the store a cease and desist letter that demands they find a new name. And it's all Palin's fault!

We'd say we're shocked, but we're... ummm...

Nevermind.

I'd send a moose suit for halloween to the person who penned that letter with an accompanying ticket to Alaska.

Sounded like free advertising from Anchorage to me, but then I used to live in Alaska.
