Getting one’s photograph taken with the President of the United States used to be something only the well-connected and/or wildly wealthy could (or would) do. But hey, times are tough, and these days, your very own POTUS-‘n-Me photo is more affordable than ever:
Yesterday, Bush headlined a fundraiser for the New Jersey state GOP, where donors could pay $5,000 to pose for a photo with the Commander in Chief. Expensive photo op, right? Well, that’s actually cheaper that what donors paid just a year ago for a grip and grin with Bush. Last summer, GOP officials around the country charged at least $10,000 a pop for presidential photo op, a bargain compared to the $25,000-a-flash Bush commanded during some Republican National Committee fund-raisers back in 2000 and 2004.
Prices slashed to a fifth of Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail! I wonder what it costs to keep Spurious George out of the picture?
