OK, I had one critical point wrong. John McCain isn’t coming to Arkansas soon to raise money with the president. Only President George W. “25 percent” Bush is coming.

John McCain doesn’t much want to be seen in public near Bush these days, particularly since his current TV advertising emphasizes how much he disagrees with the lame duck.

Anyway, back to Bush. The event is Tuesday, July 1 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George O’Connor, 10 W. Palisades. Doors open at 3 p.m. and close at 4 p.m. Photo ID required.

Two tickets to reception and two photo ops with the prez will cost you $5,000.

For $10,000, I bet they’d promise NOT to photograph you with the president.

The event is in support of Victory ’08, the Republican Party’s coordinated campaign in Arkansas.
