Who was the highest paid individual in Senator John McCain’s presidential campaign during the first half of October as it headed down the homestretch?
Not Randy Scheunemann, Mr. McCain’s chief foreign policy adviser; not Nicolle Wallace, his senior communications staffer. It was Amy Strozzi, Gov. Sarah Palin’s traveling makeup artist, according to a new filing with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday night.

Just to be clear — yes, most anyone in the public eye this much has a stylist. Yes, when your time is at a premium you end up paying more for simple services (thus you don’t go to the barber, the barber comes to you.)
