Chelsea Clinton tying the knot in lavish, secretive wedding. What a shame.
What a shame it is so secretive. Celebrating a wedding would be a wonderful thing for the US in these dark times. The peasants are not invited, not allowed to celebrate. How obvious does it have to get?? Oh, wait... she's marrying a Jewish Wall street banker...
Maybe the over-the-top luxury would piss off the newly jobless and homeless?
