Palin's a Real Plush Around Male Staffers

11/6/2008 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Maybe Sarah Palin took that whole "Nailin' Paylin" thing to heart. Turns out the veep-seeker had no trouble greeting a couple of aides in just a towel.

Newsweek
reports senior McCain staffers Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter showed up to her hotel room in at the GOP convention and were surprised to see her swan into the room post-shower, wearing just a towel. "I'll be just a minute," she told the guys, telling them to hang out with the First Dude -- her husband Todd.

And despite her protestations to the contrary, Newsweek also says Palin bought pricey duds not just for herself, but for her kids as well -- on junior staffers' credit cards, which has been "reimbursed."

Angela, GROW UP!!!! Women AND MEN detest that woman! Women AND MEN find her to be woefully IGNORANT and CLASSLESS. In fact, it's been MEN in the GOP camp calling out her lack of intellect.
You sound like the typical Palin follower--lacking in intelligence and depth.

OMG, she showers AND uses a towel??? This is definitely newsworthy! Newsweek is really on top of the breaking news! I'm heading right over to their website and buy a subscription!

TMZ just can't quit bashing Palin even when the election is over. Look at all the gaffes Biden made but the press just ignored it. I no longer respect any of the media with the exception of Foxnews. Studies after studies show they are more fair. They are the only ones who had negatives on McCain & Obama at 40%, the rest of the media looked real bad especially MSNBC & CBS news.

Wow! I shower, too! I guess what sets me and this cougar apart is that I don't walk around in a towel in front of people other than my husband after I shower.

Just goes to show Palin in devoid in class now as she always has been.

Someone said Palin has "morals." Uh, she had an affair w/her husbands business partner while Todd was away. With those kind of morals it's no wonder her daughter didn't tread the straight & narrow. I'm glad Palin is a thing of the past. I'm tired of reading about her, tired of looking at her (yeah, she is attractive but so are a lot of other more newsworthy women), tired of listening to her folksy babble. She needs to go back home & crawl inside a dead moose.

Palin lovers are all a bunch of idiots,, maybe you should move to Alaska with her! This bitch barely carries her own baby around, usually makes her 9 year old do the work for her. This same woman had an affair with her hubbys business partner and i certainly do not think that it is normal for a grown woman to stroll out in front of strangers in just a towel so you can spin it any way you want,, the bitch is a hooch

Eh? She never said that about South Africa. Sounds to me like you're a hater trying to slander her. In fact she didn't come across as that dumb in her speeches or interviews. She's not nearly as dumb as Bush, who actually DID bring down the Republican Party.

Some of her views are ridiculous though but she was gracious in defeat. A true liberal wouldn't slander her like you did, you're probably a republican closet-nazi Karen ...

Isn't the real STORY here the lack of professionalism on the part of the senior McCain staffers? Who in their right mind would hire these backstabbing gossip guys to work on any future campaigns? THAT's the TRASHY part of this story.

As for the other GOSSIP in the posts regarding Palin's ALLEGED affair--just unclassy on the part of the "postee".

And the attacks on Palin's MINOR daughter--completely beyond the realm of appropriate in anyone's book--terribly tacky! I can only assume those posting such vile comments about children have none of their own--so when and if you ever do, you will be eating those words at some point in your life. Ye who live in glass houses should not cast stones!!

One thing I constantly notice about you libs is how angry you are. Your vile words, your hate filled wishes, The way you judge people so harshly. You people who spew "she should be home raising her baby" are the same ones who warehouse your children in daycare. You who condemn her for her daughters actions obviously have never had a teenage daughter who thinks she know everything. I am just amazed. Real tolerance and diversity.

She or the campaign spent money on clothing, big deal. And the Obama campaign spent many, many millions more on beauty lighting for Barack, stage design, video walls, sound systems etc.

Wow. After all we now know about this woman all of you far right conservative whackos still support her! If you think that woman represents the best of America, then you have no faith in this country. Can't you all at least find a hero who is not an idiot... does not think South Africa is just the southern part of the African continent, knows what NAFTA is, does not spend election funds on her personal wardrobe and clothing (20k+!) for her husbands clothing, and does not fly her family around on the state's dime?

Or is that asking too much?

the only reason why she would use junior staffers credit cards for purchases is to hide the purchases.
