Devalued Tickets to a Devalued Fundraiser Featuring a Devalued President

Some Republicans are chuckling about this news item:

Obama is heading to MO and NV today to raise money for Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D), running for an open Senate seat, and Senate Maj. Leader Harry Reid.

But Carnahan’s campaign wasn’t able to completely sell out the Folly Theater, where Obama will appear for a grassroots event on Carnahan’s behalf, at the prices they wanted. Tickets once priced at $250 are now going for $99, while $35 tickets are half off.

Yes, but let’s be fair; it’s only natural to charge half price when Obama’s job approval is roughly half what it once was.

Also note the name, “Folly Theater.” The Foolishness Arena was booked, apparently.
