Chappaqua, NY - (Ass Mess): The bill for Senator Clinton's self-aggrandizing spending orgy hit $220 million this weekend as worried party managers met with bankers, creditors and holders of official Democratic nomination campaign IOUs.
Critics of 2008 election strategy chairman Terry McAuliffe hit out at the staggering spending spree saying it was nothing more than a profligate self-etiolation exercise which never stood a hell's chance of bailing out the wanked-out 1990s Clintonian agenda.
"So eighteen million suckers out of a US total resident population of 300+ million fell for the schmooze," a disgruntled Florida Dem party insider moaned today.
"Should have saved their hard-earned $$$s and stashed them under the mattress," one Wall Street analyst told reporters.
"Or better still. invested it in Chevron stock - which would have earned them by now a staggering 33% return on investment.
"No brainer, really."
