MSNBC and Nancy Pelosi’s Outfit

MSNBC is running (and rerunning and rerunning) a comment on the ticker on the bottom of its screen that says something to the effect of: the working class will be disappointed to learn that Nancy Pelosi’s outfit cost more than an average American family’s first home.

I’d like to see some proof of that. The comment is attributed to Andrew Noyes writing on Chris Matthew’s group blog, Hardblogger. Yet, a search of all the posts on Hardblogger tonight turn up nothing.

Update: Just saw it again. It’s probably run a dozen times by now. I’ll keep searching. That’s (1) a pretty ridiculous thing for MSNBC to be reporting over and over, and (2) badly in need of sourcing.
