Would You Pay $38,500 To Dine With The Obama's?
Grab Your Wallet And Lets Go!!!
This might be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. We have people in this nation starving to death, Pelosi worrying about children going hungry and then this hits my mailbox. Was it an invitation? Not a chance. A snowball has a better chance of surviving in hell than I do of getting extended an invite. Fact is, if I did get an invite DHS agents might be crawling all over me. I am a bit conservative you see.
What is the hubbub about? It seems that on April 20th, Obama and entourage are hosting a fund raising dinner out in Pelosi's San Fran district @ $38,500 a plate. That's right not per couple or family but for one person. WOWSER! I wonder if gold bullion is the main course?
They have named the affair "The Obama Victory Fund" dinner. Better make your reservations now because seating will be limited to 60 guests.
But you do have your options.
There is always "hope" though for those of us without enough "change" to attend that culinary delightful event. You can hop down to the St. Regis in Los Angeles the next morning and have breakfast with the beaming couple at either $5K or 10K, a piece again so don't get your "hopes" up too high. I wonder what is with the $5K spread on the check. Maybe someone can make a conjecture or two or three or...
For us peasants there is a low end affair in San Fran on the 20th too. Aren't you getting excited about this. This is low budget time in a bad economy. Just stop by the Masonic Temple (use Mapquest for directions) and pony up $25, $250, $1,000 or $2,500 for a plate of beans and wienies. Not sure you'll be able to hob nob with the Prez and the Missus though.
And there is reason to wonder what is wrong with our political system? You gotta be kidding me but I'm not pulling your leg about this one.
