$35,000 a plate?

Only a pie-eyed, bed-wetting leftist would pay that much money to eat with the descendant of African slave traders.

To heck with selling $5 raffle tickets for din-din with Barky, why doesn’t he just raffle off tickets for $50,000?

Oh wait he does

I have tasted this at their winery, 2009 Sandhi Santa Barbara Chardonnay. It is only slightly better than Trader Joe’s “two buck Chuck” Chardonnay.

Good point.

However, redundancy can be used for emphasis.

“...$35,000 a plate?...”

Based on a 20% tip split one way, that would come to $7,160.00. The total bill would come to $42,960.00. Life is good when you’re king of the hill.

$35,800 is an odd number. I thought it was supposed to be $3500.00 a head. The article should have included at least the number of suckers who showed up Let’s see, George Soros, the Rockefellers, the head of the Muslim Brotherhood........

Have to try the White Castle menu sometime.

The more we read about rich hypocrite liberals and their expensive lavish banquets, the more my wife and I intend to follow a simple diet featuring good nutrition and ample flavor but costing a mere pittance of what gets set in front of these ruling class put-ons.

Lobster is currently $4.95/lb. in these parts. 36 G's would buy you quite a few boatloads of the crustaceans. But of course, Obama's "donors" are not paying for food - they're paying for influence.

This is, by my accounting, Obama's 30th fundraiser this year... and the election is still one-and-a-half years away. He's already got upwards of $750 million in the bank. Now, there is no way that any Presidential campaign operation could ever spend that much money. So what is he really trying to buy?

I adore White Castle burgers. There are no restaurants in my state, so we’ve got to settle for the frozen variety (conveniently located in your grocer’s freezer section). I’m only surprised that someone hasn’t yet charged White Castle with implicit racism.

Instead of contributing this money to a campaign war chest, why don’t they put their money where their mouths are and contribute it to the US Treasury?

Better yet——Why don’t they seek out someone in need? Help put food on table, catch up on a mortgage, pay a medical bill?

Compare this menu with any Obama WH function. The organizers clearly are maximizing the contributions. Any decent butcher will have prime black angus.I can buy B/A short ribs for $5.99/lb. The wines are cheap. The price quoted is per bottle. Knock off 5 bucks each for volume.I have ten or twelve bottles as expensive in my garage. For the high rollers at this affair the menu is the equivelent of the White Castle # 1.

Oh, but they are - Obama’s in need (of re-election by the dumbmasses :-)

“Help put food on table, catch up on a mortgage, pay a medical bill?”

BHO intends to have Big Brother do even more of that - for the same dumbmasses.
