WiredPRNews.com — Fort Worth, TX — Day after Obama claims economy is in horrible shape, he’s set to rake in millions at star-studded campaign fundraiser in Beverly Hills. According to a September 16, 2008 article from the Drudge Report.com, Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama will host a $28,500 a plate fundraiser at the five-star Beverly Wishire hotel in Beverly Hills, California tonight.
Just one day after the Illinois Senator declared the US economy to be nearly as bad as the Great Depression, Obama will rake in at least $9 million dollars in one day, according to the report. In addition, Obama supporter Barbara Streisand will sing at the event, which will host an array of well-heeled names from the entertainment industry, according to the same online news site.
Obama’s Hollywood supporters have been vocal in attacking Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin lately. From former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson to Matt Damon, the comments from the world of make believe have been getting more desperate and shrill.
Damon, according to a September 11, 2008 Associated Press report by Ryan Pearson that appeared at Google.com, is gravely concerned about what Palin thinks about dinosaurs while Whoopi Goldberg thinks a McCain victory will result in slavery for blacks. In an unbelievable scene on ABC’s daytime talkshow The View, co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked guest John McCain if she’d be a slave if the GOP wins the White House. The episode aired last week.
Lindsey Lohan and Chevy Chase and others have launched similar attacks on the Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential pick.
