Phoney Baloney, Plastic Banana, Good Time Rock And Roll Birthday Party Gone Awry...The Clinton Legacy Continues...

Did you ever throw yourself a party, and nobody showed up?

Me neither.

If you did, were you asking the guests to pay a Half a Million Dollars each to attend?

Media Elites Snub Clinton’s 60th Birthday Party

This one is way too funny. Britain’s the Daily Mail reported on Saturday that the Clintons are having a hard time selling tickets to Bill’s upcoming 60th birthday party, so much so that they have now twice reduced the price. In fact, compared to what they were originally charging, in particular to Hollywood elites, prices have been drastically slashed, and are now being offered to the public (hat tip to Drudge):

When America's liberal elite were offered the chance to pay up to $500,000 each to attend Bill Clinton's 60th birthday extravaganza tonight - with the added promise of a private Rolling Stones concert - a packed house was expected.

Wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea sent out about 10,000 invitations to Hollywood tycoons, movie stars, captains of industry and Wall Street - with all proceeds to go to the former President's charitable foundation.
(The Clinton legal defense fund?)

Sadly for the Clintons, there weren’t a lot of takers:

The minimum price, with inferior concert seats and no brunch, was set at $60,000. But with many rich Democrats sending their regrets, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that last Wednesday the Clintons drastically slashed prices to $12,500 for one reception and the concert, or $5,000 for just the Stones.

It seems the new price didn’t attract many buyers either: “With the looming possibility of Bill and his long-suffering wife and daughter finding themselves amid a sea of empty chairs at the 2,900-seat Manhattan venue, tickets then went on sale to the public for as little as $1,710.“

And the article goes on to say that the Stones may not even show up, and they were going to get PAID to go. (Mick got sick, supposedly.)

(Well, that's not surprising. Mick is, what? 80 years old now?)

Still, I can imagine that there are still a couple of people in the World who would be willing to pay a Half a Million to see the Stones before Keith Richards dies, (if he hasn't yet.)

Apparently Hillary and Chelsea thought that there were 10,000.

Still, you have to feel a little sorry for former Nerd in Chief Bubba...

It's a real bummer when your Birthday Party flops.

Huhm huhm...Huhuhuh...HaHa HaHaHAAHAHAHA!!

A [url=http://www.treegrid.com/scroll-table.html]scroll table[/url] tabletable row runs horizontally in a line across a table tabletable and is normally made up of several boxes with information [url=http://www.treegrid.com/rows-table.html]rows table[/url]. When you draw a table tabletable on a piece of paper, you are creating columns and rows rowsrows. Each horizontal line of boxes is a different table tabletable row. Often, the row at the top of the [url=http://www.treegrid.com/web-grid.html]web grid[/url] is used to create headers, which tell the reader what information can be found in the boxes below it, also known as the column. For example, the first three boxes in the first row of a table tabletable in a teacher’s attendance book might read "Student's Name," "Present," and "Absent."

Table rows are commonly used in HTML to create tables and to format a web page. The HTML tag for a [url=http://www.treegrid.com/grid-data.html]grid data[/url] is . Within each row, the tag must be added for each new box the user wants to create in that row. A new table row must be created to move down to the next line [url=http://www.treegrid.com/sort-table.html]sorting table[/url] and start a set of boxes below the first. This example shows a table with three table rows and three table columns.
