You might be having a bad election year if . . . (UPDATED)

. . . 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.

I would not read too much into contemporary polical activities, we are witnessing the the friut of a long process of decline. We christian must pray and move beyond partisan politics. Read St. Augustine's City of God, which was his response to those distressed over the fall of Rome.
