Please direct me to the outrage among our friends on the right back in March when John McCain held fucking FUNDRAISERS while in Europe on a trip very similar to Obama’s recent one. If holding actual campaign fundraisers during a trip abroad doesn’t smack of a political – instead of fact-finding – trip I don’t know what does.

McCain’s campaign has sent out an invitation for a March 20 luncheon at Spencer House — the neo-classical home built for an ancestor of Diana, the late Princess of Wales — “by kind permission of Lord Rothschild OM GBE and the Hon. Nathaniel Rothschild.”

The price to attend is $1000 to $2,300. And the dress code for the event? “Lounge suits” — British for business attire.

Jill Hazelbaker, McCain’s campaign spokeswoman, said today that Congress will be reimbursed for the political portions of the trip.

Cue crickets chirping from the righty blogs.
