Meanwhile back on the Tinseltown farm last night...
The Campaigner-in-chief comes out of the closet to milk the celebrity cash cows:
(CNN) -- Hollywood pulled off another blockbuster as a star-studded guest list delivered $15 million into the campaign coffers of President Barack Obama Thursday night.
The fundraiser at the home of actor and activist George Clooney in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles attracted dozens of guests including Clooney's girlfriend, actress/model Stacy Keibler; DreamWorks studio executive Jeffrey Katzenberg; designer Diane Von Furstenberg; Barbra Streisand and her actor husband James Brolin.
Hollywood...America's last best hope [/sarcasm]. With Biden out apologizing for supposedly "jumping the gun", the timing of it all (including the Romney bully#%$* story) seems suspiciously intentional. Could President Obama have raised so much at this event had he not come out of the closet in support of gay marriage? The announcement certainly energized his base:

I’m sure Streisand had to pay for Brolin’s ticket. In fact, I’m sure he goes wherever she tells him to go and she always pays for the ticket.
advance payment for services promised.
So happy our tax dollars are able to fly his sorry azz out to Kali so the out-of-touch 1%'ers could pitch in $40K/head just to kiss his ring.
If those of us in realville had to pay $40K/plate to support anything, we'd have to mortgage our biggest investment...our homes!
Meanwhile....America's steep decline continues....
If the Kenyan wins a 2nd term, I’m going to write Clooney everyday until he holds a telethon for all the unemployed.
Last time I remember seeing James Brolin act was on Marcus Welby, MD
Just checked IMDB - he has a long list of “Made for TV” movies, none of which I’ve seen.
I don’t care how much money the Kenyan raises, he’s going to lose in November.
15 mil , only another 15 mil and he can buy the Katharine Hepburn house
No, the Won didn’t raise it but his gay friend, Clooney, did.
I imagined what it was like. Obama told everyone that he made history this week and there was wild clapping. The point is it doesn’t mean diddly squat. So what if Obama approves gay marriage. He can’t change the laws. Nobody that voted against it are going to jump on his bandwagon. He’s got a long way to go and he’s going to run out of gas before he gets there. The only thing left is that he approves the use of all drugs.
