Hollywood joins Barackapaloosa

Movie moguls Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg want their Hollywood peers to join them at a Feb. 20 fundraiser the three are throwing for Obama.


For $2,300 a person and $4600 a couple, they can meet the candidate at a reception at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Those who commit to raising $46,000 (10 couples/20 tickets) for the evening will be invited to a private dinner at Geffen's Beverly Hills home.

The fundraiser represents a major slap for Obama's main competitor, Sen. Hillary Clinton, who has received financial support from all three moguls in the past. Spielberg, Geffen and Katzenberg, along with other employees of their entertainment company, Dreamworks SKG, have contributed $47,000 to Clinton since her 2000 New York Senate campaign.

Hillary already got Kerry to tearfully bow out since he knew full well she would leak those elusive records of his likely dishonorable discharge and his FBI files. Hollywood better know that once she whacks Barack she'll expect some big time groveling and tons of $$$$$.

Hi RW -- really, really clever title on tonight's topic. ;-.)

I agree. . .Hollywood's gonna have some 'splaining to do after she gets through with Obama. I also agree with something you said yesterday. One should have to give up their current seat in congress if they pursue a higher office. Now that should be a law.
 
Honu,

It used to be fairly traditional to step down at least for Republicans. Bob Dole may have been the last one that did, but when 2000 rolled around it all started to change and nobody did.

The Silky Pony chose not to run for reelection in North Carolina because he didn't have a prayer of being elected, but since he would never admit that he might be a good one to use as an example of doing the right thing to run for President.

I didn't have a problem when people announced they wanted to run, the primaries started and in a couple of months we had the nominees. Once nominated I always thought you should have to step down for sure. I think John F'ng Kerry blew that one up. In 2000 Liebs didn't step down, but he also was running for his Senate seat so the voters could have shown him the door.

Now we have a full year and a half of campaigning for the nomination so it's time to make them resign to run. It would also weed out the pretenders real fast. Unfortunately it would be the politicians that would have to make the change so the only way it will happen is if the voting public gets vocal about it.
 
RW -- I seem to remember what a big deal that was when Lieberman did both. Plus, I never did understand how a senator can do an effective job for the state they've been elected to serve, when a presidential campaign takes them every where but there.
 
Honu,

I don't think Senators doing an effective job is a reality no matter where they are. The 17th amendment made them into grandstanding blowhards with six years between having to face voters.

We should repeal the 17th amendment at the same time we amend the Constitution to make sitting Congresspersons ineligible to seek the Presidency.
 
Let's get ready to rummmmmbbbbbllle.

Oops, that ^^^ belongs at the sports cafe.

I think they made Victor Hill give up his job down here when he campaigned for Sheriff. Ol' Victor wasn't happy with that one, and he hasn't been happy with much since then.

Poor little mole Hill, always trying to make mountains he can't climb.

Heck, Honu's probably heard about Victor up in CT. I think everybody has. Small town clown.

'Nite guys.
 
Goodnight @@!

Sports "cafe"??? Sheesh...
 
Oops! Sorry RW.

The very best by far...BAR none.

Now I have a visual of you extending your "pinky" while guzzling.

I'll try to purge it from my mind's eye.
 
RW:

Just a little sump'n sump'n to support the suurrrrge.
 
Good stuff @@, thank you!

al-sadr will be dealt with.
 
"Lord, I have a problem!"
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedy snake, but I'm just not happy."
"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples." "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."
"What's a 'man,' Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly, he'll basically give you a hard time. He'll be bigger, faster, and more muscular than you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about and hunting fleet-footed ruminants, But, he'll be pretty good in the sack."
"I can put up with that," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
"Yeah well, he's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, there is one condition."
"What's that, Lord?"
"You'll have to let him believe that I made him first."
:D :D :D

The sad part about Friday nights in another continent is missing the active give and take on Mike's blog when it;s open. Seems I'm either working or sleeping, darn it. Mostly I miss the giving by the rational Americans there... and the taking (on he chin, gut, butt, cojones) of the numnut neocons who just...don't...get it.

But your blog helps make up for it... even if I can't ge too rambunctious. We all know what happened to Washington State! Yours truly... bon scott

Speaking of nutcases, when's drunken Andy geing out of rehab? Yours for America! bon scott
 
bon scott, you just might make it, dirty deeds, done dirt cheap?
 
JNJ,

Don't tell Bon Scott, but she sounds a wee bit intoxicated.
 
damn, a blackadder would come out...
 
hello danish.
 
Gosh Bon Scott, how would you know what happened to WashingtonState?

In fact why don't you tell us if you can still string together enough letters to form a few words.
 
Well, those two anonymous posts are interesting. I thought finch was in California, which is kinda like another continent.

For Danish,
Fiery Cleric Al-Sadr Showing Compliance


You really do have to put yourself in this guy's head, which may not function like the rest of ours.

Does he want power? Is he willing to lose support of his countrymen to gain what Iran may or may not be able to deliver.

The surge was the last thing any of them expected. The forced card we left face down. All of their cards have been exposed. Allegiances, methods, etc.

It's a shame we can't be united in this surge effort. It's the only ace left in the game.
 
@@,

The post from finch was from the continent of California. Should I delete the other one? It's at least semi amusing for this kind of spam.
 
RW,

Do you think Sybil Bon Scott might like to buy a few Ts?

It might help her geout of rehab. As it stands, she is doing a very poor job of convincing us that she is either sane or sober.

@@,

My recommendation would be to "eliminate" Al Sadr.
 
Buy Danish,

It sounds a lot like Sybil bon finchie's drunken rants on New Years Eve/Day. I think he's decided to emulate his latest namesake in more ways than one.
 
RW:

"shemalesex.iwannaforum.com"

Isn't there a condom named "Forum".

Leave it. I think it's promoting "safe sex". (Smile)
 
RW:

I just dropped in at Wooten's and saw your McCain comment.

Switched over and caught Dennis Miller last night. He puts up his McCain/Giulianni ticket.

Semper (who doesn't trust McCain) looks at me and says "Crap, I'm stuck with McCain between your Dennis and your Rudy." My response...

"What can I say hon, you ain't scruffy and you got no overbite. You can work on your laugh though, cause you're almost Dennis."

I'm still shopping for "the man". Plenty of time and faux pas left.

Hey ^^^ what's the plural of "faux pas"? Pauses, Passes, Pawses?
 
@@,

The plural of faux pas is faux pas, never trust the French.
