Whooo boy! I thought I was something special when I was just getting emails (and phone calls) from the Clinton Clan. But today the unbelievable happened. Elton John invited me to a concert in New York. Honestly. He sent me an email telling me he is throwing a party. I mean, come on — Elton John. The Pinball Wizard. Diana’s friend. The Candle in the Wind guy.
Here’s what his email says:
Dear Dona, (see that? he called me by name)
There is nothing I like better than throwing a party for a good friend. Will you come out to support my friend Hillary Clinton at a special, one-night-only solo concert in New York? I promise this will be one night that you won’t want to miss.

Gosh, and here I was feeling left out of the party when I heard about all those free things Obama supporters were getting from Oprah. (just kidding – no one’s getting any free things.)
They aren’t, are they?
Since the party is in New York it’s unlikely I’ll go. Plus the ticket price is not really within my budget.
On a side note – Hillary’s site, at least the party information page is not web accessible. The details are all gifs with alt text that reads, “event details” and “ticket details”. For shame, Hillary. I guess she’s not looking for the blind voters.
