What’s Worse? Celebrities or Corporate Lobbyists?

As you may have heard, Barbra Streisand sang at a fundraiser for Barack Obama last night where $9 million was raised.  John McCain was mocking Obama today for spending time with a bunch of Hollywood elites or whatever.

My question is this?  If Sen. Obama becomes President, do you think the favors requested by Hollywood are more egregious than those expected from Washington corporate lobbyists?

Just asking.

Oh, and in case you didn’t know, John McCain has his own group of celebrity supporters:  Stephen Baldwin, Pat Boone, Wilford Brimley, Dean Cain, Jon Cryer, Robert Duvall, Angie Harmon, Patricia Heaton, Lorenzo Lamas, Craig T. Nelson, Gail O’Grady, Jason Sehorn, Gary Sinise, and Jon Voight.  [Looks like a bunch of D listers to me.]

  1. (sigh) Dean Cain? Superman, why are you doing this? Is there something I don’t know about? Does John McCain have kryptonite in his possession?

  2. You have to remember Obama rejected campaign finance, so this type of fundraising is expected and there is nothing wrong with it. It is nice to know that those who are in the upper 5% in income support Obama and have no problem paying more taxes than us middle class americans. I will be sure to support those celebrities that support Obama.

  3. Rachel, I agree with you 100%. It just seems so petty and hypocritical of McCain and his surrogates to be blasting Obama for his fundraising efforts, while McCain’s advisors are largely corporate lobbyists who have taken this country down the toilet.
