US Senator Chris Dodd’s office has received over 10,000 requests for tickets to the swearing-in ceremony for the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama.

In a press release Monday, Dodd’s office said he will receive 393 tickets and of those 200 will be given out at random.

If you are a Connecticut resident and want your name thrown into the hat then please contact Dodd’s office by fax at 202-224-1083 or email:  inauguration at dodd.senate.gov before 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 17.

1.    Each entrant must be a resident of the state of Connecticut.

2.    One entry per person.

3.    Each individual is eligible for a maximum of two tickets.

4.    Those who have requested tickets to date will be entered into the drawing and do not need to re-submit their request.

5.    All future requests must be made via email or fax.

6.    No request will be accepted after 6:00 PM on Wednesday, December 17, 2008.

7.    Tickets are non-transferable and must be picked up in person with a valid photo ID on Monday January 19, 2009.

8.    Tickets will not be distributed to groups, organizations, corporations or other entities.

Kind of odd!

One day notice.

Dodd says you can’t register unless you are a computer owner. Joe Slob need not apply!

What an elitist attitude!

Non=transferable,  so my plan to register and sell on Ebay if I win, wont work.

Seriously, I would not go if you paid me,  but wish Obama well.  as his success is critical to each of us,  supporters or not.

———-Plus must go to Wash.DC   one day early to pick up tickets, and pay ridiculously inflated hotel rates for Jan 19th.

No one-day bus travellers   allowed.

That will keep out the riff-raff and save seats for Dodd’s banker/lobbyist cronies who probably voted against Obama (as I did)  anyway

If you have a friend who can read,  ask him to read to you from the last sentence of my first post.

Where is hate?

What a jerk!
