Romney donors have gotten plenty of VIP treatment. Ahead of Rep. Paul Ryan's speech tonight at the RNC, donors will have the chance to mingle with former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley at a private reception.I think we may have to re-define VIP treatment when it involves having to spend time with Pawlenty. But it gets better, and a little more reflective of what the Romney Campaign is all about:
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign on Wednesday partied with wealthy donors on a 150-foot yacht that flies the flag of the Cayman Islands, according to an ABC News report. Members of the Romney Victory Council, who have each raised more than $1 million for the candidate, mingled with Romney’s brother, Scott, and other relatives in Tampa aboard the luxury yacht “Cracker Bay.”Cayman Islands? "Cracker Bay"? Write your own damn jokes, I cannot top reality.
