Absurd Quote of the Day: Obamas "Rare" Bow to Hollywood

An online site reporting yesterday that Obama would appear at a fundraiser with Hollywood moguls, said his appearance would be "a rare bow" to Hollywood. I have to ask if writer Ira Teinowitz lives on this planet. Ira, just google the Hollywood types routinely invited to the White House to lobby or enjoy taxpayer cocktails...please. See a George Clooney video below.


However, the event for Obama last night was likely an uncomfortable moment for some, as Hollywood has been silently falling away from their support of The One, or have they? Perhaps an example: co-host of the event Barbra Streisand was a no-show.

Here is a partial list of Hollywood, Music, TV, Sports and Writer-types publicly supporting this president.
