Skip to comments.What You Get at a Fundraiser With Anna Wintour and Sarah Jessica Parker (ABC not happy??)
Posted on 06/14/2012 2:34:18 PM PDT by Hojczyk
Fixing the economy will be put off for a few hours this evening: President Obama will be busy shaking down some celebriguests attending a fundraising dinner hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker and Anna Wintour at Parker's New York City home.
Tickets cost $40,000, about as much as the average person makes in a year. For donating all that money, what kind of party favors do these guests get? We can't afford to attend ourselves to find out firsthand, and even if we could, journalistic principles would bar us from going in the first place.
So we're left to imagine what Obama's uber supporters are paying for:
For $10,000: Matthew Broderick will sit next to you. For $5,000, you'll share a table with Will Smith. For $50, Joe Biden will watch you eat and tell you it's a "big f***king meal."
For $2,000: Obama will give you a personal shout-out at the beginning of his speech. For $4,000, he'll serenade you with three seconds of Al Green. For bundling a half-million dollars for his re-election campaign, he'll make you the ambassador to England.
Donate $30,000, and you'll get the cell phone number of super PAC major domo Bill Burton, but only after working through a series of increasingly complex clues to throw the Federal Election Commission off track.
For $9,000: Mayor Cory Booker will light your table on fire, then carry you out of the house on his shoulders. And for an extra two grand, he'll write you a job recommendation for Bain Capital.
If Fifth Avenue is packed and you're running late, for $5,000 the president will call you in your car and tell you that "the traffic is doing fine."

This is ABC? Interesting..
I'm not even going there. Restraint is difficult but benefits us all.
You get nothing. Cept the pics you used to be able to take. Now you have to purchase any pics from the staff photographer.
Phones and cameras are checked at the door. No excuses.
And any staged photos cost some thousands more.
I have a couple of friends who have gone to Hollywood fundraisers and they had a great time. Hob nob with President Kardashian and with stars and other important people.
Why, you spend thousands of dollars for rubber chicken, cheap wine and champagne, and watered booze. You get to rub elbows with pompous jackasses. I suppose it’s worth it . . . NOT.
The evil 1 percenters...
Parker's house isn't that special if you ask me. I wonder where they are going to put these 'classy' people like the Obama's?! /s
Besides, ole horse face ain't that special either.
A restrained humblegunner does not amuse me.
How much for Ben Stein?? Bueller, Beuller
about a minute and a half, but worth watching til the very ending.
Perhaps she's trying out for the lead in a new female version of Cyrano de Bergerac.
They might as well auger right on in with the man they inflicted upon this country four years ago.
She looks like the witch from HR Puffnstuff.
humblegunner must be under the weather, as he’s usually fulla pith and vinegar.....;-)
I think this is ABC backhanded attempt to embarrass the Obama team to stop putting on such crass events that alienate just about everyone, but the poor drooling Obama Zombies..
Now, that's funny! I don't care who you are! Especially coming from ABC.
