HOW MANY CHICKENS?  9:53 am April 16, 2012

For Just $50,000 Mitt Romney Will Throw In An Invite To His (First) Inauguration

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

What's in your wallet?Presumptive Republican presidential nominee and man-shaped pile of hair gel Mitt Romney needs some more scratch, fellows, and so his surrogates are passing around a nifty Kickstarter-style menu of fabulous prizes you could get if you had 50,000 clams that for some weird reason you did not need for shelter, food, or four months worth of healthcare premiums.

The campaign is asking people who are able to make a $50,000 contribution to do so today and become a “Founding Member” of Romney Victory. These donors will be invited to a special retreat with Governor Romney in late June in California and will have preferred status at the first Presidential Inaugural retreat as well as yet to be determined access at the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August.

But wait! There’s more!

For $10,000, you and your opposite-sex spouse can get a picture with Mr. Romney — somewhere the sad puddings behind Newt Gingrich’s $50 photo ops are gnashing their teeth at the unusual smallness of a Gingrich Idea — and … that seems to be about it. What, not even a totebag?

Republican swag, not worth the bag its in… (and what, no hair products?)

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:11 am

Republicans don't do their own hair: Amalgamated Metal Workers Union members do it for them

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 12:03 pm

Union members? I don't think so.
More likely forged in China.

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 12:27 pm

They want it done without the toxic materials, you see, and they want quality work

MissNancyPriss April 16, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Mitt's hair is forged from the steel of scab labor.

ManchuCandidate April 16, 2012 at 9:57 am

50K to watch Mittens cry. It might be worth to see that. Nah. I'll wait till the Youtube video comes out.

Lascauxcaveman April 16, 2012 at 11:34 am

It's a great leap of faith that your $50K ticket to the party is a good investment; based as it is on the assumption that there's even going to BE a Romney inaugural.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 12:06 pm

This is a guy who thinks $10k is a side bet… five times that probably sounds about right for a rubber-chicken banquet.

Callyson April 16, 2012 at 12:16 pm

I'll wait until Tuesday, November 6th…

Sue4466 April 16, 2012 at 9:58 am

Don't fret if you can't pony up the cash now, this is just for Mittens first inaugural. They'll be at least ten more.

Infrogmation April 16, 2012 at 2:51 pm

For $100k, you get to stand next to him on the balcony while he's announcing he's running for a third term… AND your own planet after you die!

Gratuitous World April 16, 2012 at 10:00 am

June retreat, huh?

Burlosconi or GTFO

V572 Fehrnstrom April 16, 2012 at 10:07 am

Bunga-bunga! Will DSK be there too?

Chet Kincaid April 16, 2012 at 10:33 am

Yes! And they just picked up a new security detail which suddenly became available.

I hope today is BOOBIES DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

prommie April 16, 2012 at 10:00 am

I'm in the mood for some "yet to be determined access" right about now.

V572 Fehrnstrom April 16, 2012 at 10:06 am

I'd only be willing to pay an indeterminate amount of money for yet to be determined access at the Republican National Convention.

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:12 am

I gotcher blindfold right here!

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Not a chance … not without a safe word, at any rate.

unclejeems April 16, 2012 at 10:00 am

Isn't $50K how much Mittsy makes per minute?

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Per day, actually. (If you call watching cash roll into your Caymans acccount "making" money.)

Allmighty_Manos April 16, 2012 at 10:01 am

Can you imagine how many hookers $50,000 would buy? Guess it's for the better I will never have $50,000 to waste.

Tundra Grifter April 16, 2012 at 12:10 pm

In Colombia I believe that would purchase you about 1,000 nights – including tips.

Data Exactly April 16, 2012 at 8:30 pm

For 50k you could probably buy god for that money. Who does Mittens think he is?!?

KennyFuckingPowers April 16, 2012 at 10:02 am

I want to see the invite to hear Dick Cheney talk about how good the government healthcare is and what a great fuckin' deal he got an his new heart.

freakishlywrong April 16, 2012 at 10:05 am

He didn't have an old heart.

bagofmice April 16, 2012 at 10:15 am

Hence the phrase "new heart".

Data Exactly April 16, 2012 at 8:33 pm

Out of nowhere – It's fucking Feldspar!

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Probably a Chinese import … so I doubt he'd want to talk about it. (The baggers would be upset to find out he didn't buy American.)

MissNancyPriss April 16, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Sadly, no they wouldn't. There's been a sea change in the whole "Buy American" thing and now it's us libtards that don't wanna outsource and the rethugs that think the ceos of Big This and That have the god given right to squeeze every penny out of everyone else by making their shit in China.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 7:23 pm

And the unemployed buy into this? What the fuck is in that GOP Kool-Aid??!!

chascates April 16, 2012 at 10:02 am

How about a ride in his car elevator for $5?

Lascauxcaveman April 16, 2012 at 11:37 am

Play your cards right (pretend you're the elevator operator) and he might tip YOU $5.

BlueMonkeh April 16, 2012 at 12:26 pm

nah….the ritcher the repug, the shittier the tip

Data Exactly April 16, 2012 at 8:37 pm

For 2,000 dollars you can get a ride around the block in a cage on the top of Romney's car. At this point it'll cost 10,000 dollars to start pissing, but c'mon it's Romney! It'll be worth it!

boobookitteh April 16, 2012 at 10:02 am

He's really missing the obvious – a pair of mittens with gold plated mitten holders.

Chet Kincaid April 16, 2012 at 10:42 am

In a cedar-lined, ruby-encrusted mitten cozy.

freakishlywrong April 16, 2012 at 10:04 am

I have no doubts if disenfranchising and cheating don't get it, the Supremes will be happy to appoint him.

Texan_Bulldog April 16, 2012 at 10:05 am

$10K for a picture with Willard? Damn, have none of his minions ever heard of Photoshop?

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:13 am

$10K gets you a photo with teh cardboard cutout.

Not that you'd, you know, know the diff.

chicken_thief April 16, 2012 at 10:14 am

Mittens does have a tendency to make some stupid bets, so while you are having your pic snapped, you could lay a wager with him and have a good chance of getting your money back.

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:16 am

I wouldn't lay bricks with Itt.

Pragmatist2 April 16, 2012 at 10:07 am

What's the Door Prize?

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:14 am

You get to babysit Mitt's five kids for Ann.

Also, Boobies. Too.

Biff April 16, 2012 at 10:45 am

Leave Ann's boobies alone!!!11!

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:51 am

Aw, come on! At my age, how often will I get to feel boobies untouched by human hands????

Biff April 16, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Are you suggesting that Ann hired out the breast-feeding of her 5 fine young sons?

Baconzgood April 16, 2012 at 10:08 am

I'd rather keep my 60K. But that's just me. You know, kids need to have that appendectomy and I need to buy gin and all.

For 50,000 Newt Gingrich will give you complete access to his pounding member.

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

For 50,000 Newt Gingrich will give you complete access to his pounding member.

Nikita Kruschev?

Or did you mean "throbbing"?

FakaktaSouth April 16, 2012 at 10:14 am

Personally, now that you mention it, I would RATHER be pounded by Kruschev's shoe.

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:15 am

He had big feet, if you know what I mean.

And I think you do…

prommie April 16, 2012 at 10:17 am

Newt's member can still "pound?" I think the process, with the newtster, could more accurately be called a damp, wheezy crushing, rather than a pounding.

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:21 am

Does plopping loudly against the rim of a urinal count?

Chet Kincaid April 16, 2012 at 10:44 am

No, but it does ruin my breakfast.

Look, it's not MY fault that "Newt will let you suck his shriveled up, blood-starved, diabetes ravaged, disgustingly flaccid, hidden beneath a fat apron (thank you LimeyLizzie) cock and balls" does not sound like Founding Member, is it? That's what I get for trying to be succinct and pun-eriffic. I'm glad you're back anyway.

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:31 am

Do you mind if I print this out and post it on my fridge?

I'm trying to lose weight, see…

prommie April 16, 2012 at 10:40 am

Hey, I liked it, it was a good line. I was in the Bahamas, Abacos, for a week. The place was infested with rich Alabamians, whats up with that? Sport-fishing and Nascar go hand-in-hand, I never knew. I spent my time swimming around underwater molesting rays and sharks and whatnot.

actor212 April 16, 2012 at 10:50 am

Abacos?

Damn. I've been wanting to go there. Been to Nassau/Paradise Island and T&C for diving, but Abacos has better chances for wild dolphins.

The quiet Abacosian secret is, rednecks are too stupid and inept to actually catch fish, so divers hand-hook them while the southerners sleep off a drunk.

FakaktaSouth April 16, 2012 at 10:54 am

Oh fuck yeah, when that famous fishing guy from So Fla died week before last I heard alllll about it from the douche-crew here. Conspicuous consumption a la Captain Ahab – it's what's for dinner.

PuckStopsHere April 16, 2012 at 12:35 pm

I spent the weekend in Tuscaloosa, which was infested with Alabamans, too.

BaldarTFlagass April 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

Way to go, Dude. If you will it, it is no dream.

Editrix, I bet you $10,000 I can get one for half off

You can get a Romney Presidential Inauguration for $0,000 dollars if he doesn't win. Think about all the people who won't be there – Ronald Reagan, Charleston Heston, Clark Gable, Stonewall Jackson, Merv Griffin…

Arken April 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

Newt was going to do the same thing, but he already sold off all the tickets for his first ten nominations back in 1998.

Baconzgood April 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

50K buys you a whole lotta magic panties.

That's a very different kind of magic.

GunToting[Redacted] April 16, 2012 at 10:11 am

What would it cost to participate in his posthumous inauguration? Probably not as much, because I'd guess that Mormons get to vote in the afterlife, so we've probably had a few million Mormon presidents already.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I guarantee we've had forty or so.

BaldarTFlagass April 16, 2012 at 10:11 am

I wonder if Gingrich has sent in his $50K yet.

chicken_thief April 16, 2012 at 10:18 am

The check is in the mail….

GuyClinch April 16, 2012 at 10:22 am

I imagine he'll bounce that check on purpose, for the laughs

fartknocker April 16, 2012 at 10:12 am

Every time the GOP asks me for money for their special inaugural needs or an election, I take $10 bucks out of my wallet and put it in an envelope. My envelope has $90 bucks in it. The next GOP douchebag who robocalls me or sends me mail gets the gift of me sending all the money in the envelope to the Re-elect Obama campaign. These Koch sucking misogynists want nothing but more wars, cheap fuel, and more Reaganomics. I’ve lived long enough to know their strategies are wrong.

Obama hasn’t been effective as I would have liked. But I damn sure know that Mitt in all his infinite wisdom is so disconnected with the reality of the American middle class and the women in my life that he’s not what my family or neighbors need as a President.

DaRooster April 16, 2012 at 10:26 am

When I hear one of those right wing gasbags on the radio rant and rave about the American Civil Liberties Union it generally reminds me it is time to renew.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Just promised the DNC more dough than I can really afford — but in the long run, I figure I can even less afford a GOPtard in the White House.

My name will appear on the internet, of course, for any and all wingtards to see and maybe decide they don't want to give me business. Unlike the fucking billionaires who donate millions anonymously to PACs, without anybody knowing who they are. (Because THAT would be unconstitutional.)

"…and become a “Founding Member” of Romney Victory. These donors will be invited to a special retreat with Governor Romney in late June in California …"

He stole that idea from the Perry-winkle campaign. Only Rick had "Pounding Members" and the retreat was a stag affair at Niggerhead.

BaldarTFlagass April 16, 2012 at 10:15 am

So, does this offer come with a money-back guarantee? If not, caveat emptor.

nedbeaumontjr April 16, 2012 at 11:05 am

Past non-performance is no guaranty of future non-performance.

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 12:43 pm

If I can get the same 5,000% return that Mitt got from Bain on his IRA money, I'll sign on. Otherwise, fuck him.

Note: if on first read you thought I'd typed "mouth stuffed with balls," well my point stands either way, really.

tcaalaw April 16, 2012 at 10:29 am

Some gay couple (one of whose members has a unisex or ambiguously-gendered first name) should sign-up for the photo with Mitt for the sheer amount of foot-in-mouth damage they could inflict on his campaign. (I'm envisioning that the campaign would probably withdraw the offer, refund the money, invite them back for a free photo with Mitt, cancel the free photo shoot, and eventually have Mitt mail them an autographed photo. All in about a 24 hour window of time and transparently played out in full HD on national television.)

DemmeFatale April 16, 2012 at 10:43 am

Ha, ha,ha!
(But you're assuming the campaign would have its act together!)

BerkeleyBear April 16, 2012 at 10:51 am

Better yet, a pre-op transexual who is living as a woman, but it is glaringly obvious she's a man up close, so Mitt looks ridiculously uncomfortable in the pic.

And no, I wasn't talking about Ann Coulter.

What will it cost me not to have to see that?

Mumbletypeg April 16, 2012 at 10:36 am

Weren't we just discussing Rmoney's definition of 'dignity' in terms of working and earning? The notion that a donor can be coaxed by the promise of a photo op taken with a yet to be elected, MUCH LESS yet to be proven an effective leader of the free world — as opposed to say, an ignominious failure of one — then that is hardly dignifiying the office. It's like when Clay Aiken appeared last night on whatever show it was, I just read the caption "Clay Aiken — Pop Idol" — as if being an American Idol alumnus affords you 'Pop Idol' status. The term is totally self-defined, in the eye of the beholder, and way out of proportion in time and/or space to what traditionally has evoked such an identifier.

sullivanst April 16, 2012 at 11:55 am

Interestingly enough, "Pop Idol" was the title of the English original of the show known in this country as "American Idol"*.

Is The Donald going all Yooropeen on us? Does anyone give a flying fuck what that fat turd with a couple of deceased guinea pigs on his head says anyway?

* And how sad is it when American TV execs are so utterly incapable of original thought that, having run out of ideas for reality TV and run out of British original programming, they start ripping off British reality TV?

GeorgiaBurning April 16, 2012 at 10:37 am

That "Founding Member of Romney Victory" stuff sounds good, but I'm sure the "Platinum Elite Romney Heralds" will still get to board first and grab all the carry-on space on the Inaugural Retreat. Besides, even Willard is smart enough to ignore a fool who'd pay $50,000 to attend a timeshare presentation

Biel_ze_Bubba April 16, 2012 at 10:39 am

So the first "undocumented" meeting with industrialists, à la Dick Cheney and the oil industry, is already scheduled?

I'd have sworn they'd wait till after the election to get down to business as usual.

When Romney has an offer to blow my load in his face, then I'll consider it.

What the hell, do you have a secret crush on him, or does he also need to provide a Fluffer?!

No. I just figure if Romney's gonna whore himself out for my money, I might as well get my money's worth.

Mitt Romney: Fox News Has Been Good To Me
He called Fox News viewers "true believers," but said that he needed to broaden his reach to independent and female voters. According to NBC News, Romney also said, "We are behind when it comes to commentators on TV. They tend to be liberal. Where we are ahead or even is on Twitter and on the Internet."

I wonder how many Fox News viewers have $50,000.00 to give him.

Liberal? Have no fear, Mittens, David Gregory will blow you as hard as Hannity does.

That image. That image is disturbing, and yet, so fitting.

"He called Fox News viewers "true believers," but said that he needed to broaden his reach to independent and female voters."

I don't suppose he disclosed which group will he will be lying to. (Fucking git probably doesn't know himself.)

"These donors will be invited to a special retreat with Governor Romney in late June in California and will have preferred status at the first Presidential Inaugural retreat…"

You know, the GOP big time donors are going to be very disappointed in these special retreats. They're used to being wined and dined, taken to bondage clubs, plied with liquor, and the like. A Romney function may not even have coffee served.

Chet Kincaid April 16, 2012 at 11:39 am

Mormon clergy will be on hand for expedited marriages and divorces on the evening of the retreat, if you know what I mean.

For $37.38 I will photoshop a picture of you and Mitt Romney.

$50,000 for Mitt but not a penny for Secret Service whores?

I would go to a "special retreat" with Romney if he paid me $50K.

"Though you moan
And you groan
Quite a lot,
You can take it
On the chin,
Call a cab,
And begin
To recover
On your fourteen-
Carat yacht.

Money makes the world go around,
The world go around,
The world go around,
Money makes the world go around,
Of that we can be sure."

DonnyKerabotsos April 16, 2012 at 11:42 am

Since this involves 'retreating' and not 'reloading' Mitt should not expect a donation from SarahPAC.

littlebigdaddy April 16, 2012 at 11:49 am

I hear Ms. Lindsey throws a better retreat.

And while we will all enjoy the retreat, aren't we supposed to reload instead?

Will he take a check? Newt was just asking.

There are famous fishing-guys now? There was this one fine Virginian gentleman showed up at the bar with not one, but two young ladies that he was helping with their tuition or some such mutually beneficial arrangement.

Next time holler at your girl – two wonketteers in the same place in Bammer might be just the thing that finally blows this motherfucker out.

PuckStopsHere April 16, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Damn, if only I'd known. Daughter's been offered a scholarship to 'Bama so we went down to check it out. Do you know anything about the place? I have to say, I was pretty impressed.

FakaktaSouth April 16, 2012 at 9:26 pm

I know EVERYthing about the place. I graduated from Bama in 94, and I have had at least one family member there ever since (and for most of the time before I was there, forever). In spite of every deservedly terrible cliche, I had a fantastic time and access to an excellent education and met many wonderful people from all over the world. There are many very fine programs depending on what it is your daughter wants to study. (As well as being the record holder of most National Championships…in…debate. Suck it, #2 Harvard Crimson. Also, the fairly new Frozen Tide won the SEC Hockey Championship and went to the NCAAs as well this year…just ya know, in case you were wondering about the winter sports…)

PuckStopsHere April 17, 2012 at 3:42 pm

I wish there was a way we could talk without ruining our secret identities. I'm trying to convince daughter that UA is the way to go but she like Oklahoma a tiny bit more. Thing is, Alabama is offering a full ride (I know, right? I spent my time walking around that campus thinking, "They are going to let you go here for free? Where do we sign?") We are from the Detroit area and I think she's worried about culture shock a little, but I think she would thrive there.

FakaktaSouth April 17, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Oh man, full ride. I have three kids' worth of tuition to get through. Way to have a good one! (even if she makes you pay some) I have never been to Norman, but all the people I have met through their football contingency were truly, incredibly nice. I envy her going to school now, wherever she chooses, she's going to be far away and doing a whole new thing environmentally – and I'd give anything to have had the internets when I was doing academics…lemme know if she decides to try being a southern belle!

PuckStopsHere April 18, 2012 at 12:26 am

Thanks. She's a National Merit Scholar and she earned it–she did the work, etc. I am REALLY hoping for Alabama, but Norman is "only" 275 miles further away. I'm going to see Alex Avila, the catcher for the Detroit Tigers and a 'Bama alum, on Thursday and will ask him to put a word in for the Tide.

FakaktaSouth April 18, 2012 at 9:13 am

We are de facto Tigers fans – before because of the BhamBarons/Tigers connections, and now because of Jim Leyland and MOST of all Alex. When we saw AA on sportscenter hugging Justin Verlander on Monday, my hubs said, you know he's 36th on the MLB top 100? Very proud! My 11yo son got a whole set of catching gear as a little one because of Alex, and now we don't have season Bama tickets because he's a travel ball kid. Man if Alex can't talk her into it, probably no one can. I'm also sure the admin told you a thousand times, but Bama is ranked sixth nationally among pub schools in the number of enrolled NMScholars, so she wouldn't be left adrift in a sea of moronic Jethros here, I promise! We are also REAL heavy on out of staters because we don't have the lottery, or the scholarship programs that go along with it, so a lot of kids from everywhere come here. Probably would have been better not to come when it was ADay and all the freaks were in the street…but, as Saint Nick says, it is what it is…We bring our crazies right out in to the living room when company comes over, ya know?
