Deep pocketed Dem donors are "outraged" at being asked to pony up $1000 for tickets to the Obama acceptance speech -- when free tickets were being made available to the public.

I don't understand their rage.  Isn't this left-wing economic policy in a nutshell?  Goods are given away for free to some people -- at the campaign's (read: government's) discretion -- while others are asked (by the campaign; required by the government) to pay for the very same things.

Maybe it will make the donors feel better to think of it as just "paying their fair share," rather than being pressured to participate in an "underground fundraising operation."
