Arianna Huffington is putting up a quarter of a mil for buses to the John Stewart rally:

Arianna Huffington’s surprise gift to Jon Stewart — a convoy of shuttle buses to his “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington — was an even bigger surprise to the folks at the Huffington Post.

And the cost of the grand gesture — an estimated $250,000 for 100 buses for thousands of New Yorkers — is making some of Huffington Post’s finance executives wince, according to insiders.

Hey it’s her money and she can do with it what she wants but that again shows the desperation of the left to make something ANYTHING look like a tea party rally in terms of success.

How what is going to be basically a giant DC comedy show and frat party, is going to inspire people to vote democratic party has not been made quite clear, but it’s not the reality, it’s the NUMBERS they want…

…they are counting on the MSM to create the reality for them.

Word of advice, forget the 1/4 mil for the buses, kick in an extra 10 grand to hire people to pick up the trash.
