Babs Streisand No-Show Co-Host of Obama Fundraiser

Obama was the star at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser, and Babs Streisand and hubby James Brolin, who were loudly-announced co-hosts, were a no-show. Same with Jeffrey Katzenberg. Obama said the idea of the soiree was to "reward" those who took the tough votes. Video below.

Reports are mixed about the cost. Politico says the cost to co-host was $30,400 per couple, but CBS says the cost to attend was $30,400 per couple. The high dollar price gets the couple a photo taken with Obama.

Labor Secretary Hilda Solis was one of the celebrity co-hosts.  Did taxpayers fund the Solis opportunity to mix with Steven Spielberg and Judd Apatow, as well as have a photo taken with BO? I can come to close to guaranteeing that Solis didn't pay the fee out of her own pocket.

But, of course, the big news is that Babs didn't show - she who has taken every opportunity to cozy up to Democrat presidents - stayed home. Now that the news is out that Obama stole the election from Streisand's favorite, Hillary Clinton, maybe Babs has had enough. I know I've had enough of Barbra and James Brolin. Take a look at this 2007 video of Brolin laughing about 9/11 and some interesting commentary on Hillary Clinton.
