  1. Looking at both the ‘ticket’ price listing and also the names of the two DCCC on line contest winners…I can only think, rich or not so rich…a fool and their money are very soon parted…when any Dem pol is in mix.

    50k for a photoline with NancyPee? Wow.

  2. The “small people” (the contest winners) probably had to bus the dinner tables and were rewarded with the leftovers packaged in foil twisted into cute animal shapes.
