    Nobody here would have paid for it with their own money (if they had been invited). It was a Congressional luncheon as part of the inauguration ceremonies. The Inaugural Committee paid for it, which means we did in some way, shape or form. I don't think there were any 'corporate sponsorships'. Nice menu, anyway (from the Joint Congressional Committee website):

    Menu
    •First Course: Steamed Lobster with New England Clam Chowder Sauce ◦Lobster Tails
    ◦New England Clam Chowder Sauce
    ◦Sautéed Spinach
    ◦Sweet Potato Hay

    •Second Course: Hickory Grilled Bison with Red Potato Horseradish Cake and Wild Huckleberry Reduction ◦Bison
    ◦Butternut Squash Purée
    ◦Baby Golden Beets and Green Beans
    ◦Red Potato Horseradish Cake
    ◦Strawberry Preserve and Red Cabbage
    ◦Wild Huckleberry Reduction

    •Third Course: Hudson Valley Apple Pie with Sour Cream Ice Cream, Aged Cheese and Honey ◦Pie Dough
    ◦Cinnamon Crumble
    ◦Apples
    ◦Sour Cream Ice Cream
    ◦Maple Caramel Sauce
    ◦Garnish
    ◦Artisan Cheeses

    Nice menu, no wonder she was shoving it in at that speed. With her evil looks at Boehner, she didn't want anyone to interrupt her shovelling that food into her face. Her clothes this time looked better than last; perhaps she should get some etiquette lessons soon. And as I said before, she should have learned by now that it's not polite to make faces in public to the opposition. She doesn't need to talk like finishing school Jackie Kennedy, but most folks don't act the way she does. She's plain rude and a disgrace.

    Oops! Guess for the sake of clarity I should have written ...

    "When you personally go out to a restaurant," etc.

    I really do think that my implication would have been pretty clear to most folks in here however, Linda.
