Mary Ann Akers, the Washington Post'sThe Sleuth (and boy! how the mighty have fallen if she's their crack investigative reporter, er, gossip blogger) gets all a-jitter over McCain's makeup artist, Tifanie White.
The make-up artist to the wannabe-stars is getting paid beaucoup bucks to make McCain, 72, more telegenic.
White got paid $8,672.55 in September to work on John McCain. White's got a big list of credits and an Emmy nomination. As a union makeup artist, her day rate is around $550 for a 10 hour day. Her pay's not even close to what a key artist, working on a feature film, could make. If that's beaucoup bucks, the Post is in worse shape than I thought.
Akers is really rather lame, as so manyothers agree.
