Last night John & Cindy McCain were supposed to be meeting supporters who’d paid up to as $250,000 per (solid gold) plate at a host committee dinner and private reception at Century Plaza Hyatt Regency, sponsored by the McCain-Palin Victory California Leadership. Those impacted by the stock crash could pay $1000 for a reception, or $2500 and get a souvenir pin. Cindy loves campaign lapel pins.
But McCain bailed $250K plate dinner for the bailout, supposedly sending a freshly prepped Palin in his place:
Please be advised that you may experience a traffic delay today on Avenue of the Stars due to a Republican Party Fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. The fundraiser, featuring Republican Vice-Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin, is expected to begin at 5:30 p.m. A protest rally sponsored by California Democrats is expected to begin at 4:30 p.m. Please use caution when exiting or entering from Avenue of the Stars .
Because that’s what Vice Presidents are for. No word yet from MSM on how the fundraiser went, probably because the press was not invited.
Wonder how the guests felt about what their donations bought.
