A private Republican fundraiser that included VP Dick "Buckshot" Cheney in upper-crust Belle Meade raised a quarter of a million dollars for the Tennessee Republican Party. The problem is that security was provided for the event by Metro Police on the Nashville taxpayers' tab. The next time we start hearing the lectures from Republicans that too much local taxpayer money is going to pay for superfluous Metro programs, let's agree to shove this event right between their two-faces. I'd love to know whether any Metro Council members attended the event, so that they could rationalize to me why we can spend more on Republicans and less on public schools.
