2008 Elections: Say It Isn't So!

Image from the inimitable Maru

Or rather, say it is.

The Phoenix Business Journal is reporting that a joint Gee Dumbya-John McInsane fundraiser at the Phoenix Convention Center had to be canceled due to poor ticket sales and concerns that more anti-war protestors would show up than attendees.
Bush's Arizona fundraising effort for McCain is being moved to private residences in the Phoenix area. A White House official said the event was being moved because the McCain campaign prefers private fundraisers and it is Bush administration policy to have events in public venues open to the media. The White House official said to reconcile that the Tuesday event will be held at a private venue and not the Convention Center.
AH-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA! Oh, please, please, we laughed so hard it hurts. Just think, five years ago the swaggering Chimpy McDoofus "landed" a plane on an aircraft carrier bearing a banner with the words "Mission Accomplished," and those of us who scoffed at it were all but accused of treason.

Today those same people who threatened to tear us limb from limb for finding that despicable little man despicable can't be bothered to cough up a grand or ten to listen to Chimpy hold forth. Not even when the proceeds will benefit the very needy "Republican organs" or the crabby old man who is their current nominee for Pretzeldunce.

Sweet!

Hi, all,

hard at work on the writing project. Sorry about the inexplicable absence.

Chuck, it made me laugh too. Comeuppance. I can spell comeuppance.

Onefly, something's happened to my laptop, lately - it's the audio card, I think - it overheats whenever I try to play anything. But thanks for the pointer.

Lizzy, hugs, got your eaddie, will send story after first edits. Or would you prefer a "ready for the printer" version?
