OBAMA-RAMA ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA?


It was Obama-rama at 7th and Montana this morning as three huge military helicopters flew directly over Our Favorite Starbucks. They were flying so low you could practically wave to the pilots. At first I thought they were coming after the Notorious Neighborhood Newspaper Thief who, for his part, jumped on his getaway bike and pedaled away as if his life depended on it. But then I realized that they were probably here for the President's visit. President Obama will be in town tomorrow for a fundraising dinner at the home of "West Wing" and "ER" Producer John Wells and his wife, Marilyn. Nancy Pelosi is joining them and you can, too, if you're willing to spend between $2,500 and $30,400 per person. The President arrives tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 p.m. via Air Force One. As for the helicopters, they're probably here to fly all the money he raises back to Washington ...!

Immagine how much money would have been saved if he arrived at & ate a reg. dinner like everybody else. Hope he likes pork-n-beans! Here in Stan. Co. that's the new stake.
