Weren't Wisconsin Republicans

Recently complaining about a $500-per-plate dinner at Milwaukee's Pfister Hotel for Democrats Russ Feingold and Joltin' Joe Biden?

Republicans here charge twenty-five grand for lunch.

It ain't easy to make a thousand — or even 500 — bucks seem like walking around money to most people these days. But I guess if anybody could do it, it would be the Republican Party of America.

Previous soirées gastronomique on behalf of Republican career politician Scott Walker featured defender-of-as-many-traditional-marriages-plus-affairs-as-you're-entitled-to Newt Gingrich. So the traditional family values, "social conservatives" are covered also.

Boy, the food at this place is really terrible.

Yeah, I know! And such small portions!

That's nothing. Walker had a $2500 a plate fundraiser with Haley Barbour. In touch with the people? No sir!

John: Can you believe, they put the tip on the bill, and they calculated it to 18%, even though the menu says they'd do it to 15%! *sigh* I'm going to speak to the manager...
