GOP Prowess

If nothing else, the W, Rove and Co is good at drilling for donations from their wealthy pals. My goodness the figures are staggering presented in Thursday's press gaggle with Tony the Snow job.

Might the publicized figures be conclusive proof that government at its highest levels is really only for the wealthy? I know that I wouldn't be able to generate that kind of "politica capital."

Have a look at how much they raised from fund raising recent events:
...And also at 1:20 p.m. remarks at Bob Riley for Governor Luncheon in Birmingham for expanded pool. We expect that event to raise $1.76 million for the Riley campaign, $750,000 for the Republican Governors Association. Approximately 2,100 attendees.

Q The $750,000 is in addition to the $1.76 million, or a part of it?

MR. SNOW: I think it's separate.

Q So the total is --

MR. SNOW: It looks like two-and-a-half. That's as I read it. I'll double check to make sure.

Then a Deb Pryce for Congress, closed press event in New Albany, Ohio. Expected to raise $500,000 for the reelection campaign and Ohio Victory 2006, which is a state party get out of the vote effort. Approximately 300 attendees. Returning to the White House at 8:35 p.m.

Here's $100, watch my Porsche

When you're asking people to give you money, it's no different than panhandling on a street corner. When politicians do it, it comes with a show. The 'gift' is to keep them from pissing on your leg.
