Elton John Will Play for $1mm

(Community Matters) I remember how impressed I was that Elton John would play a private party for $1mm

If it were a progressive or liberal conclave I’d feel similarly sad:  <<even Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and [Clarence] Thomas>>

“Koch Industries , the brothers’ privately owned oil, chemical and household products company, has sponsored the summits twice a year since 2003 … The donors … are gently pressured to give while the invited operatives jockey to impress the Kochs and their donors with presentations on campaign and legislative strategy. There’s also a collection of A-list dignitaries that has in recent years included rising political stars like Eric Cantor, Chris Christie, Bob McDonnell and Rick Perry, talkers like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck – even Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and [Clarence] Thomas. … The Kochs raised more than $150 million at their winter conference this year in Indian Wells, Calif., on top of $49 million at a summit a year earlier in Rancho Mirage, Calif.” http://bit.ly/LL8jJK
