President Obama heads to the West Coast today for a two-day, three-city fundraising swing that includes a stop tonight at the LGBT Leadership Council Gala in Beverly Hills, where the featured entertainment will be "Glee" star Darren Criss and the speakers will include talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
The event, which comes after two San Francisco fundraisers, will mark Mr. Obama's third fundraiser directly targeting the LGBT community this year. In April, he hosted a fundraiser in Florida with the LGBT Leadership Council that raised $125,000 from 50 supporters; in May, shortly after he announced his support of same-sex marriage, he raised an estimated $1 million during a New York City fundraiser co-hosted by Ricky Martin.

Obama, from Dreams From My Father:
“I had discovered that it didn’t make any difference whether you smoked reefer in the white classmate’s sparkling new van, or in the dorm room of some brother you’d met down at the gym”
You meet some guy at the gym then go to his dorm room? Anyone else find this a bit weird?
Hags & fags chipping in cash for the chosen one.
