Welcome to Bizarro World. A day in the life of Barack and Michelle Obama, who spend more time condemning the rich than a New Yorker spends swearing:
President Obama exhorted a group of loyal supporters huddled in the front yard of his Hyde Park home to adopt the Olympic spirit and sprint to the finish in this highly competitive presidential race....
The president was playing host to 100 donors to his re-election campaign who paid $40,000 apiece to attend. The event, his third of five fundraisers scheduled today, was expected to raise more than $4 million for the campaign, according to Democratic officials.
Shortly after wrapping up his remarks, the president walked down the the block from his private residence to a fourth fundraiser of the day at a neighboring home.
And our modern-day Marie Antoinette?
The house is in a gated community in Beverly Hills, just off Mulholland Drive. A long black slate driveway with its own black gate, lined by 8-foot shrubs, leads to the residence...The white, minimalist house has unobstructed views of the San Fernando valley. Out back, there is an infinity hot tub that spills over into a vast infinity pool.
Tickets for the event started at $2,500 for a family of four, with approximately 400 guests expected to attend, according a campaign official.
Not something most Americans can afford, what with the rising price of gas, food, and health care, not to mention stagnant employment and wages...but still, no worse than going to Met game, I suppose.
Ms. Stefani and her bandmates from No Doubt, including Tony Kanal, are seated on folding chairs on the upper portion of the patio. Ms. Stefani is wearing a sleeveless hot pink peplum top, matching hot pink skinny pants, black leather stilettos with spike heels and several chunky silver bracelets. Her hair is arranged in a top knot...Ms. Stefani's children--Kingston, 6 years old; and Zuma, 3 years old (both boys)--are in attendance.
Very...presidential. And parental. If you're the palace whore...
And yet, despite all of the above, we still managed to get this:
Obama: Paul Ryan favors the rich
Can't make this sh*t up if you tried...
