Buy every Iraqi woman the clothes that the Republicans bought Sarah Palin

For the price of the Iraq War, we could've bought each Iraqi woman the clothes and accessories that the Republican Party has bought Sarah Palin during her Vice Presidential run.  

According to 2005 estimates, there are 13.3 million women in Iraq.  The Republican Party recently made headlines by buying Sarah Palin over $150,000 of clothes and accessories during her run.  Providing every Iraqi woman with the clothes and accessories that Sarah Palin purchased would cost $2.0 trillion, $1 trillion less than Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes' estimate of $3 trillion for the total cost of the Iraq War.

Hey, I just got a new job. Do the Republicans want to buy me a new wardrobe?

Not unless you're working for them, I'm sure. I never regarded you as the double agent type.

Much better than my idea- although, you really ought to note that some of that $150,000 went to clothe her family too. So, every Iraqi family, maybe?
