Breakfast of champions?

Apparently, the cost of eggs has gone up -- way up -- judging by a fundraising breakfast set for tomorrow in Washington DC that promises to raise oodles of money for Sue. Though we weren't invited to the event, which begins at 8:30 tomorrow morning, the NRCC's calendar (scroll down to Oct. 6) notes that tickets cost as much as $2,500 a pop. Bargain tickets can be had for a mere $1,000.

In addition to Sue, who is the guest of honor at the "Financial Services Industry" breakfast, other speakers include Fox news anchor Ed Hill and a former strategist for Vice President Dick Cheney who now works as a DC lobbyist and which a quick Google search reveals had some curious ties to Enron. Also on the list are lobbyists for some of the nation's largest banks, including Bank of America and Citibank.

We're sure that it's purely coincidental that all of these bankers want to plunk down $2,500 for eggs with Sue and that it has nothing to do with her role as Vice Chairman of the House Committee for Financial Services. As for us, we'll be having breakfast tomorrow at the Lexus Diner in Newburgh, where the eggs are considerably cheaper.

Oh, Sue, doing what she does best. She's been MIA in the district for the last 10 years. i guess she's nervous over the fact that there are a lot of qualified Democrats getting ready to take her on.
