Caveat (Freakin' Obama Convention Ticket) Emptor, For Cryin' Out Loud!

What part of "You Get What You Pay For" do Obots not understand?

Exhibit tickets are confusing Obama supporters

Seeking seats for speech, some buy museum entries

Sharon Stewart couldn't believe her good fortune - two tickets to Sen. Barack Obama's historic night in Denver for $15 apiece.

She bought them on Ticketmaster for the "American Presidential Experience" at Invesco Field at Mile High and invited a friend to join her as Obama accepts the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.

But it turns out her tickets weren't for Obama's presidential experience but for a traveling museum of White House memorabilia. And the tickets are no good anyway because the museum won't be open to the general public Aug. 28, the day the Democratic National Convention moves to Invesco Field for Obama's acceptance speech.

"I'm just devastated," said Stewart.

Stop giggling!

And think about this little gem from the same article:

Ticket plan coming soon

The question of how tens of thousands of tickets will be handed out to the public has been a source of speculation since Obama's campaign announced the move to Invesco on July 7. One logistical problem for campaign staffers has been coming up with a system that would allow them to stop people from selling tickets on eBay - and ensuring that Obama faces a friendly, and full, house.

As for the confused Ms. Stewart...

Stewart, however, is still hoping to score tickets for Obama's speech.

"It's historic," she said. "I have got to be there. I am just trying to figure some way to get into the convention."

Obviously, Ms. Stewart is NOT a worker, volunteer or anything remotely associated with the Democratic Party; otherwise, "getting into the convention" wouldn't be a problem at this late date, would it?

She's obviously one of those Obama Groupies, who aren't supposed to exist... because if they did exist, Obots wouldn't be able to freak out over John McCain's Obama's a lightweight rock star accusation and then turn around and accuse the McCain campaign of racism.


Just be glad you're not as confused as Ms. Stewart.

Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:

Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.
