Obama Charges $1,000 Per Handshake


President Obama’s fan base is willing to pay through the nose to get a glimpse of him. In fact, supporters in Dearborn, Michigan showed up today to shell out $1,000 just to shake the hand of The One.

“A thousand dollars is a lot of money,” Lonnie Peek, one of the fortunate few to touch Obama personally, told CBS. “But other folks are kickin’ in for their candidates, so what you do is you bite the bullet. You wanna have your conscience good, to feel that this is what I did. You know, you go without a couple of meals. We can miss a couple meals.”

Lonnie Peek, by the way, gave Obama $2,000 during the 2008 election cycle. He’s apparently a former member of the Citywide Citizens Action Committee, “possibly the most broadly based Black Power organization in any city,” according to articles at the time of its founding; he is a self-described racial “militant.
