$75,000 worth of silver spurs engraved with the inuagural logo or, how bout Jackie O for a mil, instead?

Party on:
"The historic Jefferson Hotel is offering a $1-million inaugural package that includes round-the clock limousine service, spa days, his and her gold Presidential Rolex watches, fashions by the couture designer of choice, diamonds from Tiffany and — in a rare bipartisan impulse — a side trip to Chicago for a private tour of the exhibition "Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years."
For $75,000, the Sofitel Lafayette Square's "Don't Mess With Texas" package includes a suite lavishly decorated with yellow roses, and sterling silver spurs engraved with the inaugural logo. "
from Yahoo--click at the top for the story.

Were they thinking of charging them for the tickets? Will they get to overnite in the "Don't Mess With Texas "Suite? Will they at least be given one of the inaugural silver spurs? And what will the Iraq Body count be that day?
from the white house:
"We are planning nine inaugural balls, and unique to this year will be the Commander in Chief Ball. This ball will be free of charge to invited men and women of the armed forces and their families. We are working with the Pentagon to distribute tickets. "

Is there something odd about this line-up of Bush Balls?
