Bill Clinton's 60th party to last 3 days
NEW YORK, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Tickets to former U.S. President Bill Clinton's belated 60th birthday party in New York start at $60,000, a private Rolling Stones concert included.
While Clinton's birthday was Aug. 19, organizers delayed the fundraising event until late October to avoid complaints from Democrats the money raised for Clinton's charitable foundation would be lost to campaign contributions for November's mid-term elections.
Some 2,100 invitations have been sent for the event, which will run from Oct. 27 to Oct. 29, the Washington Post reported Thursday.
Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, will host a Saturday brunch featuring a golf tournament at the Bayonne (N.J.) Golf Club, multiple receptions and a dinner at the American Museum of Natural History with Clinton and his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.
The Rolling Stones will perform at the 3,000-seat Beacon Theater, and the invitation says the concert will be taped for an upcoming Martin Scorsese movie about the band.
Also why wouldn't Mick and Keith, play for Clinton, they both have "friends" who committed suicide in their "professional" past.
You make a grown man cry....
Good heavens, didn't Slick already celebrate his 60th throughout the month of August? Just how many celebrations does the egomaniac need?
What else would we expect from a narcissist of monumental proportions?
Clinton and Mick Jagger--how fitting. Two filthy old men, both ageing badly.
Clinton has his own charity? What is it?
...(wag index finger here)
The museum will be temporarily changed to American Museum of UN-Natural History for the event...
You have to admit; Bill Clinton is a fun guy, and that's why so many like him---no logic here in regards to his politics or anything else for that matter. He's a fun guy and that's all that counts in a lot of people's minds.
BJs all around.
I've heard it said that the "fun" guys are usually the ones who provide the illicit substances.
What next the Bill Clinton Christmas special?
Uh if there had been no Brian Jones, there would have been no Rolling Stones. mick and keith pushed Brian Jones out.
JMO, the Stones playing for the Clinton's is kinda of a sick joke, between themselves, about how they got rid of their "torublemakers".
will Bubba be blowing out his own candles or will a fat intern do it for him?
Exactly how is he a fun guy? He's got great hair and synopsizes with ignorant woman by "feeling their pain....and other things" only to get laid! Otherwise only a psychopath would have a 3 day celebration celebrating himself!
Gee - I wonder how many poor, starving democratic voters could be fed with all this money?
I can see you're not a fun guy LOL
or Katrina victims, $60,000 times 2,100 invites is $126 million
You named it psychopath. Thats Bill. But he is normal compared to those who would bend down and lick his butt.
From what I've read,they don't really make such a secret of that.Their claim was,IIRC,that he was so drunk and/or stoned that he was a liability.Not too long after he was tossed,he was found in his pool.
Back in those days,certainly,the scenario of the drugged out rocker was pretty well established,you'll have to admit.It would have been easier,and quicker,to list the rockers who *weren't* doing heavy drugs than to list those who were.
I,for one,have never heard it suggested that foul play might have been involved in his death.What evidence is there that there was?
I thought Democrats were the party of the little people. I do not know many little people who have parties like this. Plus couldn't the money go to people who "need" it more.
Did Monica get an invitation?
AACCHHHGG....don't give them any ideas!!!
Sure glad all those posters on this sites prayers for Bubba's health during his bypass worked
Otherwise he wouldn't have made it to 60 and be able to enjoy this bash
And keith richards was never too drunk or stoned in his whole life, correct.
And of course, we'll soon see a mediacrat bemoaning the influence of big money in politics... *not!*
Am I too unkind to pray that all the "fatcats" will decide to keep their wallets closed, and pass up on their big chance to "see and be seen" and "party hearty" with the "rich and famous"?
Will there be a moon-bounce, and a clown? Will we get a party favor bag?
Bubba is just SSSOOOOOO presidential isn't he?! he really takes the dignity out of presidential! He makes me sick. Someone on Fox can't remember who said it after his childlike tamptrum that he has made millions on his books-talks why can't he just go away and enjoy his millions and keep quiet! Amen!
"He's a fun guy ..."
Like a 6 foot mushroom buying rounds at the bar?
Let's spend the night together....
Let's spend the night together...
For 60 thousand dollars? Absolutely. You'll even have your choice of bags: Helen Thomas, Nancy Pelosi, etc.
Let's see, Bubba makes himself relevant again by going ballistic on FOX and generating a lot of hoopla from the Moonbat. Then a few days later the $60,000 a ticket B'Day celebration announcement comes out. Hmmm
And what will be the tab for the Secret Service security blanket?
Could be Vince Foster stopped thinking Clinton was a fun guy exactly ONE DAY before he was murdered.. Chinagate must have been "IT" for Vinny..
I'm sure there are lot of women that would agree with you (smirk)
What a drag it is getting old....
I met a gin-soaked barroom queen in Memphis.....
'Cause I try, and I try, and I try, and I try,
I can't get no, I can't get no ... Satisfaction....
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name.
But what's puzzlin' you is the nature of my game.....
But it's alright, Jumpin' Jack Flash is a gas, gas, gas.
I started out as "Mother's Little Helper".
She taught me to play those "Tumbling Dice".
That's when I got hooked on "Honky Tonk Women".
Then, to get into politics, I tried to become "Respectable" so I married the "Bitch".
But since she had a "Heart of Stone",
I had to become the "Midnight Rambler".
It really put me between a "Rock and a Hard Place".
But, hey, I was the AG then Guv of AR. I was "Hot Stuff".
I told Juanita, "Let's Spend the Night Together" We had to keep that "Undercover of the Night".
But even "Wild Horses" couldn't keep me out of the White House.
I fooled enough voters to "Gimme Shelter" there for eight years. (Even though I really wanted to "Paint It Black").
Most were stupid enough to think I was their "Beast of Burden".
I attended enough funerals that "As Tears Go By", right-wingers were saying it takes a "Fool To Cry".
Hell, I even got a silly little philly who was "Blinded by Love" to "Start Me Up" but she had to stay where you "Can't Be Seen".
But then them damn Republicans got together to "Break the Spell".
I no longer had everyone "Under My Thumb".
I got some "Emotional Rescue" from Jesse.
Luckily, I convinced myself and the Senate that since only a couple of years remained in my term, "Time Is On My Side".
Whew, that was close.
I finished the terms and figured I'd do the "Harlem Shuffle".
Everything was gonna be cool until UBL finished the '93 job on 9/11/01.
But then, "You Can't Always Get What You Want".
"W" had to mess things up more by proving he was the REAL "Street Fightin' Man".
I stayed (sorta) in the the background 'cause I know "When the Whip Comes Down" you don't want to "Play With Fire".
Five years later I get interviewed by a "Monkey Man". I respond with "Lies", but I know deep down that my legacy is "Shattered" and "Slipping Away".
I still can't get get no "Satifaction" so please have "Sympathy for the Devil".
Oh, what the hey, I think I'll go back to Harlem and get me some "Brown Sugar".
"a fun guy"?
Yeah in the "Hey Y'all, hold muh beer 'n watch this" sorta way!
IOW a total f'in' train wreck. Amusing is not what we need for leadership!
"BJs all around"
Dang you went through the whole Stones repotoire, hotshu.
