I'm not into the jealous of the rich thing, but I just wonder how many of the people being wooed by the hosts of this airline vote the straight Democratic ticket, believe totally in man made global warming and contribute to Nancy Pelosi who has blocked and will continue to block efforts to drill for more oil in the US, and thus keep the price low. I would bet money the number is in the 99.99% range.
The following is from a column by the ex-Mayor of Baghdad by the Bay, Willie Brown.
I went to the party of the year Wednesday night. It was thrown by Emirates Airlines, and did they ever put on a show.
It was in the Herbst Pavilion, Building A out at Fort Mason. They had about 500 people.
They made up the place as if you were in the first-class section of their best aircraft. All red.
All these attractive, tall, model-like airline attendants were around with their helpers. And their helpers were nattily dressed guys with white tops and black pants - with tray after tray of anything you wanted to drink.
The cost? Who knows.
I mean, Hilary Swank as the hostess! They had the Lyon Opera Ballet perform during the cocktail reception.
Then a curtain opened up and you went into this dining room with huge screens all around on which they projected the story of Dubai.
Then out came the Irish river dancers and the Brazilian dancers. At the end, Swank invited everyone to come up and dance. And for an hour, Sheryl Crow performed and nobody, but nobody, left the dance floor.
Let them eat cake, eh dear chums?
