I'm envious. On a recent research trip to the Billy Goat, the $18 tab came to me, and my generous companions contributed something south of $4.
I checked StubHub for discount tickets to the Romney event without any luck, but no doubt there'll be scalpers with good deals on State Parkway.
But I'm going to vote with my feet and skip the Romney fund-raiser.
Republicans are big advocates of feet voting. Earlier this week Romney announced an education-financing plan that, he says, would make it easier for poor parents to vote with their feet for their children's schools. Wealthy parents presumably could participate as well, although they'd likely vote with their Lexuses.
We should remember in November that every toe counts.
I'm just glad the Cubs played this afternoon, so I won't have to vote with my elbows to get on the Red Line again this evening.
