John McCain in LA Today

As his running mate Sarah Palin prepares for her Thursday debate (notice how FOX News is already giving her an out?) with Obama VP select Joe Biden, Republican nominee John McCain will be trying to raise a quarter million dollars at a fundraiser tonight. It's at the Century Plaza Hyatt Regency in Century City, so plan ahead for some extra special traffic tonight if you're in the area. Or maybe you're going to the fundraiser 'cause hey, you get a nifty little McCain-Palin lapel pin for the $1000 to $2500 entry fee. Wow. Life would be just so complete then.
