Aside from completely missing that Bob was joking, you're making the same fallacious argument I've already seen. Yes, a home may be older than the schools. But a 120 year old home MIGHT have a few hundred people go through it over the course of that lifespan. They also have owners that don't have to go to their neighbors and say "please, sir, may I have some more" in order to effect…

REBEL MEDIA: Obama to shake the money tree for Our Man Dick

5 months, 1 week ago by Bob Gough

President Barack Obama returns to Chicago this week  to participate in two events for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Obama will spend the night in Chicago and depart Friday, according to the White House.

The trip is a push for the re-election of Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, the Senate assistant majority leader.

The Chicago Tribune reports the schedule calls for Obama to attend a fundraising reception Thursday at the home of Michael and Tanya Polsky and a dinner at the home of Fred Eychaner, according to an invitation to the events.

Eychaner, the founder of the Newsweb Corp., is a top fundraiser for Obama and other Democrats.

Michael Polsky is president and CEO of Invenergy LLC, based in Chicago. The firm develops, owns and operates power generation facilities in North America and Europe, its Web site says.

Durbin and Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who chairs the DSCC, sent out the invites, which ask for $1,000 of reception guests, $10,000 of reception sponsors, and $15,000 of reception co-chairs. Dinner costs $17,500 per person, or $35,000 per couple. Better be steak and lobster...and good beer.

Sorry, Quincy. There's not enough money down here to make Dick come see us with much regularity these days.
