Aretha Franklin

The $40,000 Eat-and-Run

EXCLUSIVE

just left Sarah Jessica Parker's $40,000 a-plate dinner party ... after spending just 20 MINUTES INSIDE ... that's $2,000-per minute!!!!!
 
Aretha -- who was the first to arrive to the Barack Obama fundraiser -- was also the first to the leave.

On her way out, Ms. Franklin told us the food was impressive ... "chicken with a mustard sauce, diced tomatoes and a lot of relishes on the side of the plate."

She added, "Very tasty."

If these people can afford $40,000 fundraisers they can afford a tax increase.

What about the contest winner? And didn't Obama's team realized they were violating a Federal Trade Commission law relating to games of chance for tonight's fundraiser winner? Oh that's right. Laws are only for commoners, and those who disagree or question their phony philosophies.......... Do I hear sirens??

I thought there were limits on how much someone can contribute to a campaign. Why have laws when there are constant loopholes in the system?

She served chicken when a black man came over for dinner? If that had been a Conservative serving Obama chicken all we would have heard about is how racist and stereotypical it was.
