In reading this post about how some gal
got tickets to see the election night special at the Daily Show, and then got hosed when VIPS were pushed to the front of the line:
I don't believe in being entitled to anything just because I'm a fan, or am a bigger fan than this person or that person.
But I am owed. Not the cost of my flight. Or the cost of my hotel. Or even the vacation days I took, which I could have used to visit my family. What I'm owed is the experience of witnessing history take place somewhere other than alone an empty bar on 11th Avenue, sucking on a can of Bud Light, feeling completely emotionally empty.
I can appreciate that the experience sucked, and that you feel like you got hosed. But nobody can give you back that evening, and so it's silly to claim that's exactly what you're owed.
Part of the enjoyment of reading the post comes from the fact that she's clearly an Obamabot.
