It sure is good that you 99%ers think that the government is the solution - a corn-and-soybean protein shake!!!

"Fixing the economy will be put off for a few hours this evening: President Obama will be busy shaking down some celebriguests attending a fundraising dinner hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker and Anna Wintour at Parker's New York City home.

Tickets cost $40,000, about as much as the average person makes in a year. For donating all that money, what kind of party favors do these guests get? We can't afford to attend ourselves to find out firsthand, and even if we could, journalistic principles would bar us from going in the first place.

So we're left to imagine what Obama's uber supporters are paying for:

For $10,000: Matthew Broderick will sit next to you. For $5,000, you'll share a table with Will Smith. For $50, Joe Biden will watch you eat and tell you it's a "big f***king meal."

The standard dinner will be overseen by Michelle Obama and will consist of locally grown herbs, low-fat beet-garnished eggplant and a corn-and-soybean protein shake. For $4.50, you could get a tasty dinner from Burger King.

For $15,000: You might get a flattering profile in Vogue — though it'll cost another $15,000 for that profile to remain online once the editors kill the link.

For $2,000: Obama will give you a personal shout-out at the beginning of his speech. For $4,000, he'll serenade you with three seconds of Al Green. For bundling a half-million dollars for his re-election campaign, he'll make you the ambassador to England.

Donate $30,000, and you'll get the cell phone number of super PAC major domo Bill Burton, but only after working through a series of increasingly complex clues to throw the Federal Election Commission off track.

For $9,000: Mayor Cory Booker will light your table on fire, then carry you out of the house on his shoulders. And for an extra two grand, he'll write you a job recommendation for Bain Capital.

If Fifth Avenue is packed and you're running late, for $5,000 the president will call you in your car and tell you that "the traffic is doing fine."

Only thing missing is the bunga bunga after party for $100k. Oh wait, I forgot, Obama likes to be secretive about the saucy stuff. This probably isn't even the real highroller list you got hold of here.

Average person makes $40,000 a year? About 50% make $26,000 a year or less.

Fuckin' Sickening !!! I need a bucket now !! Oblahblah is nearly as big a Shit-Bag as Mittens Romulan !

  • "A draft agreement leaked Wednesday shows the Obama administration is pushing a secretive trade agreement that could vastly expand corporate power and directly contradict a 2008 campaign promise by President Obama. A U.S. proposal for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact between the United States and eight Pacific nations would allow foreign corporations operating in the U.S. to appeal key regulations to an international tribunal. The body would have the power to override U.S. law and issue penalties for failure to comply with its ruling. We speak to Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, a fair trade group that posted the leaked documents on its website. "This isn’t just a bad trade agreement," Wallach says. "This is a 'one-percenter' power tool that could rip up our basic needs and rights." !!!

It HAS GOTTA be time to start looking for those pitch forks !!

still too furious for latin !

I seriously believe Wintour is a Republican plant, she couldn't be more clueless.

Wintour is a shill for The Parasitic 0.01% & a materialistic, 1%-pandering 'praise singer' ! Research her father 'Charles Wintour' - newspaper editor and a bastion and exemplar of the right-wing, reactionary 'establishment' in England until his death in 1999, for insights about where she is coming from !!

multum in parvo ...
