Got a spare million? Inauguration planners want you to donate your fair share

The Obama administration knows you might be a little strapped for cash after donating last year to the most expensive presidential campaign ever, but if you do have an extra $1 million sitting around, the president’s inauguration planners will take it.

The Associated Press is reporting that inauguration planners are soliciting donations of up to $1 million. Austerity cutbacks? Those can wait until February, right? So what do you get for a million bucks? “Such donation packages, which come with special access, are a far cry from the policy of Obama’s first inauguration to accept contributions up to only $50,000 from individuals,” writes the AP.

Consider it a stimulus for the American party industry; the White House can stop shredding the Constitution and buy some fresh confetti instead.

What would you prefer? A second-term president with no balls?
