Oh, it just gets better and better

Remember how some of us thought that the big story of Mitt's trip was going to be his megabucks fund raiser with the white-collar-criminal element of the Piranha Brothers?  Well that was before Willard became a blight upon 'Ol' Blighty" -- and now look how that turned out:

Romney appears to have angered the entire of the British Isles in the past 24 hours.
Worse still, it seems that his fundraiser, which happened tonight, might not exactly be a huge success — it sounds like attendance could be a little thin.

Tickets to the event, which were originally priced at between $25,000 and $75,000, were being given away for just $1,000 a few hours before the event, UK right wing blogger Guido Fawkes tweets. Milo Yiannopoulos, a UK tech blogger, says he was offered a free ticket to the event three times.

Can't give away tickets to a fundraiser?

Rmoney is fast becoming the Glenn Beck of politics, isn't he?

That would be a real problem, except that the Rmoneybot can afford to pay people to attend, which is sort of an upscale version of buying your friends.
