McCain had his own crazy California fundraiser a few weeks ago, it just wasn't publicized as much. Obama isn't trying to win the election because of the celebrities that are giving him money- celebs have been giving both candidates money and both candidates have been working their assess off to raise more money.

So here we have a socialist(Obama) telling America that he will fix the economy...but then is collecting all these money from celebrities, etc. Mr. Obama: you cannot buy the presidency and celebrities have very little or no influence in elections!

Wow I can't believe Babs raised that much! It must be nice for Barack to have these celebrities in this corner (at least for the fundraising if nothing else). I want a seat in the bleachers to watch the red carpet! That would be amazing. Ugh a Miley Cyrus movie that's in a similar vein to A Walk to Remember? No thank you. Mandy Moore is much more likable.

yet another celeb is supporting obama in a big way? i guess is barbara wants to do it - then more power to her. as for the awards tickets - i think that a lot of people will want those seats, so i hope that it goes smoothly. if i lived out there i'm sure that i'd want to be right along side the red carpet. i wonder if fab/bella are going to be there? congrats to lil wayne - although it still baffles me on how much acclaim the guy gets. i know that he's been rather successful in his career but he outpaces so many people and it's just odd to me woo hoo - another miley vehicle. i don't know about anyone else, but i'm a little tired/bored with her right now. maybe this will give us a different impression of her? i think that it's nice that they are planning to honor carlin - he was a really well known icon of comedy even if you didn't agree with his style.

Babs is a disgrace because America is hurting financially, in general, and she goes ahead with her $9- million party? Babs, when will you learn to vote the man sometimes and not the party?
