NOW THAT'S FUNNY
Senator Frank Lautenberg is holding a fundraiser by offering swanky seats at a Lady Gaga concert. On September 7 at the Monster Ball Tour at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C., the Senator is offering seats in a private box for $2,500 per person for political action committees, and $2,400 for individuals.
When asked why he was doing this, Senator Lautenberg had a Poker Face.
He's hoping to get some attention from the Paprazzi.
You can get tickets by calling on the Telephone.
Seriously, the Senator appears to be a genuine fan. The 86 year old attended a Lady Gaga concert for his birthday in January. The Senator was diagnosed with lymphoma last February, but announced he was cancer-free in June after being treated with chemotherapy.
Perhaps the Senator is young at heart. Perhaps he knows a good fundraiser when he sees one. In any case, I can only imagine the conversation when Lady Gaga stops by after the show and they chat.
Senator: That was great, Lady Gaga. By helping me raise money, you've helped bring emergency foreclosure prevention to millions of umemployed New Jersey workers. Doesn't that make you feel great?
Lady Gaga: La la oh ma ma.
Senator: Yes, well, your talents have also helped me forward my Energy Efficient Housing Partnership.
Lady Gaga: Ro ma la pa sha.
Senator: I hope you'll support me in the fall as I continue to push for cap and trade and education funding. Education is so important, don't you agree?
Lady Gaga: Fa Fa, lo la la, gee gee goo ma ma, spetchy taty oh gaga!
Senator: You're quite a gal, Lady Gaga!
Well, it might make a great fundraiser, but it sounds like a Bad Romance.
