RightOnline: Michelle Malkin « The Washington Independent
PITTSBURGH – The author of the No. 1 New York Times bestselling “Culture of Corruption” closed out the morning of RightOnline, where she’s the undisputed star. She relished the attacks on conservative activists, sarcastically repeating what she claimed were left-wing assaults: “You, the teeny tiny fringe minority of fringe conservative activists — you have seized control of the domestic policy debate in this country.”
Malkin recited a litany of Democratic blunders, but one of them seemed misleading. “They’re charging $25 to attend town halls to hear Obamacare talking points,” she said. The source for that? A post on Malkin’s blog, linking to the news that business-friendly Blue Dog Democratic Rep. Melissa Bean (D-Ill.) was speaking at a $25 breakfast for a local Chamber of Commerce.
Multi-Chamber Breakfast meeting hosted by the Lake Zurich Area Chamber of Commerce will feature guest speaker Congresswoman Melissa Bean, September 2, 2009, @ Concorde Banquets, Kildeer. Congresswoman Bean will also be presented the US Chamber’s Spirit of Enterprise Award given annually to members of Congress based on their support of key business issues. Open only to representatives of Chamber member businesses in good standing in District 8. $25 cost includes a full breakfast.
Based on that: Hey, Democrats across the country are charging for town hall meetings!
