Bush Takes on Wine Country…In Style
If there must be a HUGE national debt, I suppose it’s good that Wine Country gets some of that spending.
Next weekend President Bush and what must be an amazingly large entourage, will roll into Napa Valley and completely take over the Meadowood Resort. That is to say, no one but the President and his people will be staying a the famed and very expensive Napa Valley Resort.
I think they’ll like it.
But what will it cost. Meadowood’s low-end rooms (the ones that are small and have little view) go for about $400 per night. The suites? $4000 a night.
What can President Bush do while occupying all of Meadowood? Golf, Croquet, get a facial, eat, drink,
visit the gym, play tennis, take a hike (literally, not figurativley).
I can’t fathom what this weekend will cost Americans. However, I’m positive the President will have a good night’s sleep.
I’m not so sure the residents of Napa Valley will get quite as good a night’s sleep, however. Napa Valley and the town of St. Helena and Wine Country are not exactly "Bush Country."
I’m not sure why that is. Why are the Wine Country counties of Sonoma and Napa predominantly liberal?
