They have easily transferred their hatred of President Bush and Laura to the McCains and Palins.
They seem to particularly hate Cindy.
They have had a field day with the cost of her outfit.

Wow! No wonder McCain has so many houses: his wife has the price of a Scottsdale split-level hanging from her ears.
(All prices except Laura’s shoes and Cindy’s watch are estimates, and the jewelry prices are based on the assumption that the pieces are real.)
How quickly they forget
Jackie Kennedy's jewelry was worth MILLIONS
The stone was cut from a diamond believed to be the 11th largest gem ever found. Experts at Sotheby's estimate that it could sell for $500,000 to $600,000. (it actually sold for 2.6 million)
Several other pieces of jewelry owned by Mrs. Onassis are also to be auctioned, like an emerald and diamond necklace designed by Van Cleef & Arpels, expected to bring $100,000 to $125,000.You may not have heard about some of the other jewelry that sold at the auction: a beautiful 47-carat kunzite ring that President Kennedy purchased as a gift for his wife but never had the chance to give her. This sold for more than $410,000; a beautiful amethyst necklace with graduated drops which sold for $55,000; lovely red tourmaline briolette earrings that dangled from amethysts, which sold for $35,000; a striking cabochon garnet flower brooch from the 19th century which sold for $145,000; a spectacular 17.68-carat ruby ring which sold for $290,000; some cabochon ruby dangling earrings which sold for $360,000; and a cabochon ruby necklace that was a bargain at $247,500. One surprise was an interesting little scarecrow pin in gold and gems that sold for $100,000!
