Why Doesn’t McCain Spokeswoman Nicole Wallace Take The Hit For Buying Those Expensive Clothes For Sarah Palin?

On Fox News this afternoon, Fred Barnes says only about $50,000, not $150,000, was spent by the Republican party on clothes for Sarah Palin.

He says it was staffer Nicole Wallace who went out and bought those clothes without consulting Sarah Palin. That Wallace has refused to come forward and acknowledge what she did. Instead, she has allowed Sarah Palin to take the entire hit.

UPDATE: Fred Barnes takes it all back and apologizes to Nicole Wallace.

Nicole Wallace has consistently mismanaged Sarah Palin, as this Politico piece makes clear:

"These people are going to try and shred her after the campaign to divert blame from themselves," a McCain insider said, referring to McCain’s chief strategist, Steve Schmidt, and to Nicolle Wallace, a former Bush aide who has taken a lead role in Palin’s campaign. Palin’s partisans blame Wallace, in particular, for Palin’s avoiding of the media for days and then giving a high-stakes interview to CBS News’ Katie Couric, the sometimes painful content of which the campaign allowed to be parceled out over a week.

"A number of Gov. Palin’s staff have not had her best interests at heart, and they have not had the campaign’s best interests at heart," the McCain insider fumed, noting that Wallace left an executive job at CBS to join the campaign.

I don’t mean the Nicole Wallace who is a character on Law & Order:

I mean this Nicole Wallace:

I don’t mean this girl who was tossed off a German bus when the driver found her cleavage too distracting:
