(Newser) – So much for being a woman of the people. GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has spent $4,700 on campaign "hair and makeup" since June 13, according to campaign finance filings. Bachmann made three major payments to Maryland-based stylist Tamara Robertson, who has also earned her keep as a makeup artist for Fox News. Bachmann's bills jumped once she joined the GOP race; she was previously known as someone who preferred to do her own styling, notes Mother Jones. No word yet from the Bachmann camp on the hefty payments.

Some of you make me ill. Why can't you guys lay off the looks thing? Why the hell do you think she felt pressure to do something like this? I really dislike her political views but for the love of god the personal attacks have to stop. Grow up people. Talk about the politics all you like but if you are adults please act like it.

I wonder how much Trump spends for his comb-over? How much does Pelosi spends on face lifts? How much do we spend to send the Wife and the girls on vacation to Rome and Africa? How much do we spend when Barack decides to go golfing? I wonder how many shots of Vodka Bernanke drinks a day while he is wondering when the crash will come?
