Loretta Sanchez-Sarah Palin Fashion Smackdown!

News item: The Federal Election Commission says Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove) improperly used campaign money to buy new clothes, bringing to mind the flap last year when it was discovered the Republican National Committee spent more than $150,000 on designer clothing and accessories for vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family.

Fallout: There is but one recourse, and that is a Loretta Sanchez-Sarah Palin fashion smackdown!

After the jump you will see each politico in various fashion ensembles. Trendzilla has been enlisted to comment on which politician scores the most fashion points or comes to a draw in each category. At the end, a winner is crowned.

Loretta Sanchez-Sarah Palin Fashion Smackdown!

Doctored Photos of Their Heads on Someone Else's Body in a Bikini: This final category always throws judges for a loop.

Trendzilla Says: Aw. Remember how sad you were when you realized the gun totin', U.S. flag bikini wearin' photo was a big fat fake? (Though, if you really wanted to know what Palin looks like in a swimsuit, you could always check out her old pageant vids right here.) All she was missing was a neon-colored beer koozie. Aww.
Verdict: Oof. The combination of lace-up knee-high Minnetonkas and a bikini, despite the cut-and-paste head job (heh), is still way hotter than Palin anything--despite the obvious Cramps reference.

The final score? Sanchez 5, Cat 1.
