Individual tickets for the February 25th event start at $250, which seems like a high price to pay to hear a fat pimply disgraceful blob that wants to overthrow American democracy sputter out some inflamed right-wing talking points for an hour or two.
As a result, interest in the event from your stereotypical Chamber of Commerce Republicans – a.k.a. the ones with money – has been tepid at best, and now organizers are apparently having trouble selling tickets.
In fact, things are getting so bad that they’re taking a cue from nightclub operators, garage bands, and rave organizers and placing handbills under windshield wipers at various political events.
For example, here’s a ticket flyer that one Mole found attached to their windshield last night after leaving an Oklahoma State Chamber event:
To be clear, events like this are not for me. The only time I’ll fork over money to interact with another human being is when a lap dance is involved, so I can’t imagine paying $250 to hear any person speak, much less someone who looks like Pizza the Hut from Spaceballs.
That being said, outside of someone wanting Bannon to autograph some vintage Nazi memorabilia, who would pay $250 to go to this thing? That's a bigger waste of money than season tickets to the new OKC Wranglers.
In addition to selling tickets for $250 and $500, the Oklahoma County GOP is looking for wealthy corporate backers to throw some serious money their way:
Yep, that’s right.
For only $50,000, you and nine of your favorite insurrectionist pals can get an up close and personal seat next to Steve Bannon, and hear firsthand what it will take for GOP extremists to overthrow American Democracy. What a deal, huh?
Anyway, I guess if you want to buy tickets or a sponsorship, head over to the Oklahoma County GOP website and place your order. Be sure to send us some pics, too.
