President George W. Bush to visit P-Town
OK maybe his approval ratings aren't the greatest but I am still psyched that the President of the United States is visiting our humble little town. How cool is that? Here is the full story. My apologies to the PJStar for stealing their photo. We just don't have the $5K they are looking for to snap our own.
Anyhoo, John and I are kicking this around a little bit and he says he is definitely in, so that is $500 bucks out of the old checking account. So then I have to decide if we wanna pony up a cool $1K for me to go too. I wonder if they would consider a 2 for 1 deal? Hmmmm.. I wonder if we could get credit for any campaign contributions already made to the Schock campaign? And I wonder whose "private residence" it is? I'd offer up our digs if we didn't have to spend the thousand bucks.
Then the Journal Star reports that a pic with the Prez is $4,500 bucks, and when I refreshed the page it is up to $5000. I understand inflation but that's ridiculous. I wonder what the chances would be of getting a quickie snapshot with my Krazer?
And would Aaron have to pay himself $4,500 for a pic with the Prez, or will that be thrown in as a freebie? Maybe he'll get like a 50% off deal.
All these questions. If anyone gets any of the details on this little gig please post them here. I'm wondering how many people they expect. Will it be standing room only or a cozy little fireside chat? Somethin tells me we are going to be $1,000 poorer to find out.
