Ali-Frazier. Tyson-Holyfied. Cain-Gingrich.
Forget Lincoln-Douglass. At these prices, you’d expect someone to at least throw a punch.
If you want to see Herman Cain debate Newt Gingrich Nov. 5th at The Woodlands Resort north of Houston, without the filter of the “lamestream media” and about the "most pressing issues facing America today," all you’ll have to fork over is $200 -- and that’s for the cheap seats.
That and a $5.99 processing fee gets you “some good ole apple pie” and a chance to “sit and enjoy the debate.”
For a cool $500, you get a “Patron Ticket - prime seating and Nite Cap party after the Debate. 8:30pm til 10pm: Mingle with the candidates and enjoy some drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Seating will be based on order of receipt of reservations.”
Or you could really step it up -- to the $1,000 level, which “includes best seating in the house for the debate and attend the Nite Cap Party in the Lakeside Room at The Woodlands Resort and have a professional picture take [sic] with the candidates.”
There is a student discount. Students get in for $150, but, unfortunately, that promo's no longer available. That sales period has “ended.”
So where’s all this money going?
To the Texas Tea Party Patriots PAC, which bills the event as:
The Lincoln-Douglas Debate was then...
The Cain-Gingrich Debate is NOW!!!
It also issues this disclaimer:
“Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer of individuals whose total contributions exceed $200 in an election cycle.”
So, if you go, it's also a federal political contribution.
By the way, at those prices, a cash bar is available. But, hey, don't worry, the group says there will be "Plenty of All American Apple Pie, Coffee and of course Tea!"
No word if this main event will also be available on Pay-Per-View.
