Obama Birthday Bash and Fundraiser

You're invited to attend President Obama's birthday party. That'll be $30,000.

President Obama turns 49 on August 4.   A Chicago “real estate mogul” named Neil Bluhm is reportedly hosting a private birthday party at his home, with attendees required to donate $30,000 to the Democratic National Committee.

My initial reactions:

  • I bet the 50th birthday party will be really expensive
  • Michael Vick’s 30th birthday party was an even bigger bargain than I thought at $30
