Did someone call her schnorrer? Hooray hooray hooray*

If Sarah Palin ever becomes president, they'd better count the plates in the White House china:
Sarah Palin and her entourage descended "like locusts" on the Oscar swag suite, scarfing up freebies in a binge that "practically cleaned the place out," celebrity gossips reported Thursday.

The former Alaska Gov's Wednesday pigout included jewels from Pascal Mouawad, watches by Skagen and a fancy new hairdo for her daughter Willow. The new coiffure came courtesy of Erick Orellana, Jennifer Aniston's longtime hairstylist, witnesses said.

The Los Angeles Times reported Palin was supposed to donate all of her gift items back to the Silver Spoon Oscar Suite for auction, as well as $1,700 of her own cash, in support of Red Cross efforts in Haiti and Chile.

But E! Online insisted, "we can assure you she did not give up any of her swag."

She's the perfect Republican -- opportunistic, heartless, and greedy.

Being a Jerseyite, you may remember, Jill, that Sopranos episode that blew the lid on this swag suite (Ben Kingsley costarred).

The boys went old school and mugged Lauren Bacall of her swag. I say we should've done the same thing to Palin.

* "Hooray for Captain Spaulding," Animal Crackers, for the pop-culture-impaired. Because you forgot the footnote (it was late in the day).

I'd like to think that Groucho would get a couple of days' worth of material from the antics of politicians, but then he always did.
