Remember hearing about the big Obama Hollywood fund-raiser hosted by Barbara Streisand earlier this week?
(CBS/ AP) Barack Obama partied with Hollywood celebrities Tuesday night and with the help of Oscar-winning singer and actress Barbra Streisand raised an eye-popping $9 million for his presidential campaign and the Democratic Party.
The night was split into two glitzy events, a reception and dinner costing $28,500 each at the Greystone Mansion, followed by entertainment by Streisand at the nearby Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. About 250-300 people were expected at the dinner and about 800 at the entertainment, which cost $2,500 a ticket.
Dinner guests seen by reporters, or noted by waiters, included Will Ferrell, Jodie Foster, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Lee Curtis and DreamWorks founders Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg.
There was another special guest and good friend of Barack Obama in attendance. Her name is Jodi Evans. She supports terrorists. She gave over $600,000 to the families of Al Qaeda jihadists in the Anbar province in Iraq. She co-founded CodePink and is regularly arrested with her anti-war stunts on Capitol Hill.
Why is Jodi Evans at an Obama fund-raiser? He promised to end the war, now he's negotiating to keep American forces in Iraq until after the November election. Remember what CodePink did to Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi for not "doing enough to bring our troops home" by heckling and stalking both women at every campaign event or book signing?
Kristinn Taylor at FreeRepublic.com has new details of the nexus between The Chosen One, The Terrorist Supporter, and their Hollywood Pals here.
Democrat presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois put his seal of approval on the woman who attempted to storm the stage during the acceptance speech by Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska at the Republican National Convention by welcoming her to his $28,500 per person fundraiser held in Hollywood on Tuesday night.
Less than two weeks after garnering worldwide attention by getting within feet of the stage where Palin stood before getting dragged away by security personnel, Obama bundler Jodie Evans, co-founder of the anti-American group Code Pink, was one of about 300 donors attending the high-priced fundraiser Obama held at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills that brought in approximately $8 million for the Obama campaign and the Democratic party, according to Entertainment Weekly, which published the donor list for the event.
During a campaign appearance today, Governor Palin was quoted saying that she doesn't question Barack Obama's patriotism. She questions his judgement. I question both - and his fitness to become our next Commander-in-Chief.
