DEMOCRACY FOR SALE
If you’re not doing anything this weekend and you’ve got fifty thousand dollars to spare, here’s an idea: call up Mitt Romney’s campaign and ask if there are any spaces left at his retreat for G.O.P. mega-donors in Park City, Utah. Strictly speaking, the gathering at the luxurious Deer Valley resort is for Romney supporters who have already contributed to his reëlection effort. But the Romney fund-raising folks are very accommodating. A quick wire transfer, and you could be sharing a golf course or hiking trail with the likes of John Sununu, Condoleezza Rice, and Bill Kristol.
