Clooney's Obama party full of 'Hollywood Hypocrites' May 10, 2012 Steve Lopez
They say tonight's soiree for President Obama at George Clooney's house in Studio City is supposed to gross $15 million, and the operative word is "gross."
And what about the thousands of saps who pumped an average of $23 into Obama's campaign coffers for the chance to be one of the two peons chosen to break bread with the VIPs?
I'd rather watch the Lakers game from a bar stool, which in fact is what I may do.
I haven't seen Clooney's guest list, but I'd bet $2 - and not a penny more - that his house will be full of that particularly unctuous strain of liberals who live for events like this that make them feel good about themselves but don't really give a toss for their own community. Los Angeles could end up declaring bankruptcy and these posers will be telling friends about their big night at George's house.
Fifteen million dollars - a third of it raised by the local big shots - is peanuts to Obama, really. Another drop in a bucket the size of Santa Monica Bay. And isn't money the root of all evil in politics, whether it's from out-of-control "super PACs" or wanna-be-seen moguls who might be expecting something in return for ponying up?
Los Angeles is shutting school libraries, laying off teachers and shutting down firehouses. And VIPs are paying $40,000 for a Wolfgang Puck hors d'oeuvre and a silly photo with a president who only now has come to think it might be OK for gay people to have the same rights as straight people.
Open your eyes, Hollywood hypocrites!

Maybe they’ll get food poisoning!
McCarthy was right.
Being a 1-percenter is tough.
Sure it is. Make it out to the Church of Obama. ;-)
Office of Redundancy Office!
I point out the obvious...
If ever there were 2 words that are redundant
Did Obama tell some of the Hollywood Millionaires how unfair it is that Clooney and his personal asst. pay different tax rates?
