How our betters live

| No Comments
It is nice to get a little insight into our ruling class once in a while. From The Palm Beach Post:
Nancy Pelosi�s Palm Beach party had more security than guests
When she showed up for a private dinner in Palm Beach, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi walked into the home of businessman and Democratic moneyman George Cloutier with a security detail 12 strong, mostly US Capitol Police.

There were four additional Palm Beach cops. And two sheriff�s deputies.

Oh, yes! Two police boats in the Atlantic Ocean, across the street from Cloutier�s house.

And with 18 guests at the dinner last weekend, the wingding had fewer guests than lawmen!
And a bit more:
I�m told the cocktail party and sit-down dinner for the San Francisco Democrat Pelosi raised $100,000 for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. New U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch was there, as was the Boca U.S. Rep. Ron Klein.

Since cops don�t talk about security for high-ranking government officials, there�s no telling if the setup at Cloutier�s house cost the taxpayers more than what was raised for political purposes.

The surgically-beautified Pelosi, meanwhile, appreciated particularly the treats that Tiffany Cloutier had flown over for the occasion and placed on everybody�s plate: 10-inch-long, 8-inch-tall replicas of San Francisco cable cars made of hand-painted chocolate!

Among the civilians at the shindig: Local landowners Rick and Tricia Keitel and lawyer Michael Steiner with his wife Janet.

After catching some Zs at The Breakers, Pelosi spent Sunday with personal friends in Vero Beach.
And of course, all of the security costs were paid out of her own pocket -- yeah and I have some oceanfront property in Nevada you might be interested in. Clueless, ugly and tone-deaf. This is not the way to go through life...
