And we wonder why…

From this AP report:

… Obama is scheduled to arrive in Manhattan for a pair of $35,800-a-ticket fundraisers for his re-election bid.A Democratic official said Obama was to speak at a reception with about 15 people at the Ritz-Carlton hotel and a dinner for 50 at a private home. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and movie producer Harvey Weinstein are the dinner hosts. The reception host is Gary Hirshberg, chief executive officer of organic yogurt maker Stonyfield Farm.

The $35,800 admission price is the legal maximum per person.

Same world, different planet.

If they only “hang” with the rentier class, how do we expect them to represent the rest of us schmucks?
