According to the Washington Post in an article here, Romney surrogate John Sununu has issues with one of the dresses First Lady Michelle Obama wore at the Democratic National Convention last week--the dress, designed by Tracy Reese retails for under $500--the First Lady said she paid about $350 for it:
"[Sununu] alleged on a conference call to reporters on Wednesday that the
Obama camp was telling a host of lies including the dress’s price. 'Somehow I don’t think that’s the truth either,' he said, regarding the dress."
One must wonder what the point of the comment is, and also why First lady wannabe Anne Romney's dress purchase (an Oscar de la Renta, purportedly costing over $2,000) wasn't on his radar.

"Paul Ryan's campaign walked back comments the VP nominee made about running a marathon. 'I had a two hour and fifty-something' marathon, Ryan said last week in an interview. 'I hurt a disc in my back, so I don’t run marathons anymore.' But the Ryan campaigned confirmed to Runner's World that he has only run one marathon, the 1990 Grandma’s
Marathon in Duluth, Minnesota, which he finished in just over 4 hours." --Alana Horowitz, Huffington Post, September 1, 2012
