Just when I thought Hillary Clinton couldn't get any tackier, along comes this el stinko. Still owing some 5.4 million dollars from her failed presidential campaign, Hillary and her motley pals have come up with a grand scheme to pay off the debt.
Introducing the Friends of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Raffle. (Her friends are James Carville and Paul Begala.)
It works something like this; Each ticket costs 5 dollars. The winning tickets get one of the following:
Tickets to the finale of American Idol (date with Paula Abdul not included)
A day spent with Hillary's erstwhile hubby, Bill Clinton, in New York City (date included depending on winner)
A day in Washington DC and lunch with Carville and Begala
"I'll just have a glass of water, please."
During lunch, you'll be talking politics-you know, stuff like how to destroy political opponents and such.
It'll be interesting to see who ponies up the most tickets (you know, the more tickets you buy, the more chance you have to win).
Oh him? That's just King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. He'll probably buy a couple of tickets.
What a classy idea. The Secretary of State having a raffle.
