background noisemakers

Willard has hit his stride among the Let Them Eat Kippers crowd: ... In Mr. Romney, given his ties to the industry and his tax-cutting promises, they have found a person they can back with enthusiasm. And for all of the news about the Libor scandal, an attendee at the reception said that the controversy was merely “background noise” for those in the ornate ballroom — replete with crystal chandeliers and gold paneling and filigree. According to the campaign, roughly 250 people attended the event, which was expected to bring in at least $2 million. And, in a nod to Britain, Mr. Romney’s guests dined on fish and chips, passed around in paper cones... Pretty low overhead when you're working the Beasts of London.
