Obama Fights Poverty $28,500 At a Time

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama took a hard-lined stand today for the poor and downcast. Knowing that if Big Government doesn't look out for the little guy no one will, Obama attended a fundraiser which had an attendance price of $28,500 per head. It is not known whether or not the poor or downtrodden were invited.

Story here.

And here.

I can't believe it - after writing this up, AP comes out with a story on it, and here's the quote from Obama:
Standing in the courtyard of the palatial estate, he said his campaign was dedicated to people who need jobs and health care and worry about their pensions and sending children to college.
"It's about those who will never see the inside of a building like this," Obama said.
