. . . you cut prices for a fundraiser . . . at which the President of the United States will appear. And that is no joke.
Demand was so low for a fundraiser for Missouri Democrat Robin Carnahan’s run for Senate that prices were cut. And that even though (or because of?) Obama will appear:
Carnahan's campaign wasn't able to completely sell out the Folly Theater, where Obama will appear for a grassroots (editor: SNORT!) event on Carnahan's behalf, at the prices they wanted. Tickets once priced at $250 are now going for $99, while $35 tickets are half off.
Heck, they might as well sell $5 tickets to hecklers.
Now it can be told!
The REAL reason for Obama and Carnahan’s fundraising flop is . . .
George W. Bush.
