A few days ago, the local paper ran a notice that Palin would be here in Ohio doing fundraising.
This isn't particularly surprising. What caught my attention was the price for the meetup in Cincinnati.
$2,500 for a single person or $10,000 for a couple.
Interesting discount program the republicans are running - Bring your wife or husband along for just 4 times the price of a single ticket. This ticket price is to see the woman who was for the Bridge to Nowhere, then when the uproar over it started, she said "thanks but no thanks" (after the money was approved, mind you), and then kept the money to use for other things.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that sort of a no-no?
Somehow that makes perfect sense given the insanity of the Republican candidates...
Hey, McCain did say that he didn't know anything about economics. I think this just sort of proves it unless you think the photo you supposedly get to have taken with Palin should you buy the couples ticket is worth the extra 5 grand.
Of course, if you don't want the couples ticket, you could always opt for the $25,000 VIP reception tickets. (I believe that was per person, though I may be mistaken).
These are the people that so many of the residents in this area want leading the country? People who seem to think that 2*2500 = 10000? A supposed "maverick" that votes with Bush 90% of the time and the governor of a state with a population less than that of the capitol of this state who has, by the way, been immersed in scandal since she was allegedly vetted?
I think I'll pass.
