Lynn Sweet has a breakdown of the Obama campaign's $935 charge for premium media access to the campaign's outdoor election night festivities:

"Press File Seat - $935 (includes 1 Press File Credential, seat in heated Press File Tent, Power, Cable Television, High Speed Wired Internet Service, Catering)"

I am hot-blooded, can pack a lunch, can get the Internet through my budget TMobile plan, have batteries, and am scared of Chris Matthews, but unfortunately there's no Broke-Ass Blogger Package with Bankruptcy Discount. There is a free General Media area, but you have to pay for spin.
