That’s one reason why liberals CAN be liberals—they can AFFORD to be. After all, how does it hurt them to pay $3, $6, $100 a gallon for gas?
Figures. San Fransisco. Bunch of fruits and nuts.
Picking out some places to move to after his 8 years in the White House? A lot of people would owe him by then. He could probably get some nice “loans” and some nice “discounts” on the real estate.
So the Republicans are the party of the rich? I guess the Demos are the party of the SUPER RICH!?!?
Republicans are mostly working class people. Demos are usually your super-rich or the sponges of society that think they’re due something.
Zombi deserves a Pulitzer.
Great post. Nice pictures.
Good post. I absolutely can not stomach the leftist elites and their hypocracy. These people talk about “global warming” and that stuff, and I’ll bet my evil assault SUV that they use up more energy that I do between the electric and natural gas bills.
I agree with the poster who suggested Zombie deserves a Pulitzer. He freakin’ rocks.
Too bad the judges wouldn’t recognize *real* journalism when they saw it...
Hypocrisy ping list needed!
Those people might find him to be useful when in office,but I can guarantee you that they don’t want him living in the neighborhood after he’s served his purpose.
I fail to understand how candidates like Obama and Clinton can condemn the super rich for not paying their fair share, dodging taxes and making life miserable for the working man and yet can eagerly go to functions like this with outstretched hands looking for donations and support. This is hypocrisy of the first order.
I love it.
It’s better than lolcopters.
A+ post with perfectly tuned irreverence.
The weather bunny thing worked out after all.
I’m told he is a she.
And she rocks, no doubt. For this, and many other reports.
How many carbon credits offset one of them Limos? ROFL
Clean, unobstructed, very good report.
Kudos to the distinguished Zombie staff and jdm for this jewel.
I grew up in the east Bay Area and this picture really makes me home sick. Even being an ex-Californian it's easy to think there is nothing at all redeeming about the Golden State, but then you see pictures like this and it's no wonder that Reagan loved her so much.
Every time I'm back in the Bay Area, I have said many times "you know if this place weren't so $#@$#-ed up, I could live here again."
I was perusing a friend's website, and hit a link that took me to his at LGF.
Glad to find it posted.
Zombietime is one of the best at simple in depth reporting with quality pictures that tell the story quite well.
That was a wonderful post. I really enjoyed the pictures and commentary, especially the fashion observations.
I wonder if Obama brought the Che poster to this party?
Must drive Hillary crazy. The same SF elite crowd that was fawning and filling her pockets less than a year ago are now triping over themselves to back Barry. Getty’s backing Obama now. Oh the loyalty of libs.............
I feel almost sorry for that kid that had to wear that lame sport coat and be dragged to a Obama fundraiser. He looked miserable.
Your point decribes the situation perfectly, but unfortunately the superb reporting and photos from zombietime will never see the daylight in the lamestream press. There is no change...hussein obama is just another player in the dark back room of politics...his only problem is that he isn’t important enough to enter through the front door with all the other paying guests...he is just a another poor beggar politician who must use the servants’ entrance...beggin’ for bucks just like a true whore...what a f’n joke!!!!
Nice to see that Barack stopped to talk with the cop, the eccentric and those in Zombie’s group.
You have more restraint than I do. I would have pointed out that if Barack Obama would have walked through that neighborhood four years ago wearing a FUBU jersey ringing doorbells, he'd have been in the back of the patrol cruiser of the cop you photographed him shaking hands with.
I's also like to know why Barack Obama didn't decide to make a side trip to shake hands for free in Hunter's Point while he was in San Francisco.
Obama hand in the cookie jar BUMP!
While he had his hand out...did Obama happen to mention to these typical rich white people that his spiritual mentor hates them?
One of the greatest lies the liberals have ever put over their dumbed down liberal voters is how the Rat Party is made of little common guys, gals and its.
Out here in the Gay Frisco area, if a person is really rich both new and old money, they are probably uber liberal.
These a$$holes are among the most arrogant and demanding rectums of the world. Most have never really worked, raised a family, served in the military, worried about paying taxes and the costs of raising children and educating them.
These uber elites are fascists like those who controlled Germany, Italy and Spain in the late 1930’s to the end of WWII. They are not socialists nor communists like those who serve them and voted for their candidates.
They hate capitalism as that could mean competition to their fortunes. They hate the military and a strong America.
They hate Christians and real Jews. They hate us probably more than anyone as we stand in the way them controlling America and the world totally.
fruits and nuts
A great find that needs hyper-bumping.
"We need more
white black people!"
Say what you will about Bay Area millionaires, at least they are making a sacrifice to back Obama — $4600 for the tickets, and $100k a year in higher taxes once he’s reverted marginal rates and cap gain rates and converted dividends back to ordinary income. And the Getty’s are going to be stuck with tens of millions in fees and costs to evade the hundreds of millions of estate taxes Obama will restore upon them.
Reserve your contempt for trial lawyers and unions who are going to get back $100 in benefits for every $1 in effort they give Obama.
You got THAT right! Zombie documented a huge number of DemocRAT voters in action last fall in the annual Folsom Street Parade. :)
Keep up the good work, Zombie!! DemocRATS are proud of their base.
makes you wonder what they are getting in return, doesn’t it?
like, why would michael bloomberg or john corzine or any of these guys spend tens of millions of their own money in addition to funds raised, to get a $200-400k per year job? hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........
Bump for the evening crew.

one of the best articles I’ve read in a dang long time. Just a fun, well written good read.
I concur. That’s the best media report of a fundraiser I’ve ever seen. In fact I think even the Obama-lovers at Rolling Stone would print it if you substituted Clinton’s name (she was probably visiting last week) as they hate the limosine libs almost as much as the GOP.
As for the servants quarters, that is SOP for security reasons, nothing to do with race (though you can certainly draw whatever conclusions you like ). McCain would use the same entrance at Ellison’s place down the street.
