Huckleberries Hears That ...

... GOP grand dame Ruthie Johnson is hosed about the VIP setup for Saturday night's Lincoln Day Dinner. Seems you're allowed to hobnob with the party's upper crust if you buy a table for $800. But run-of-the-mill elephants who pay $50 for their seats aren't allowed in. One planner may have said something like "this is the way to keep the riffraff out." Dunno if Ruthie's in or out, based on what she paid for her meal. But I've been on Ruthie's bad side enough (Ed Note: Is there anyone in Kootenai County you haven't ticked off?) to know that things can be unpleasant when she's unhappy.
