Overnight Open Thread

So Some In Hollywood Are Worried About The Barrage Of Obama Celebrity Fundraisers and the possibility that they may backfire.

Some of the president's most ardent entertainment industry supporters quietly tell The Hollywood Reporter that while they realize he needs to deploy all of his weapons to compete with deep-pocketed Republican super PACs (Ed-What? There aren't any Democrat super PACs???), they fear the increasing reliance on stars and celebrity contests could backfire with swing voters and mobilize the right.

"After he took office, he ignored everyone here," gripes one L.A. donor, "and now we feel like we're being used."

Ah poor babies. You are being used. You are Obama's ATM machine. Without you out of touch, Hollyweird types, Obama's fundraising would be taking a big hit. Without your cash, you are nothing to him. And just as you state above, you will be ignored again until he needs cash again. Which will probably be all the way thru the election 'cuz the Prez is hitting the rest of us to forego birthday and wedding gifts and instead give donations to him which I really don't see adding to his coffers all that much.

By the way, I got news for you celebritard types. It's not just the fundraisers where you blow $40K a plate for someone who hasn't done dick for the economy that is hurting your image or as you say mobilizing the right. It is also stupid stuff like this: Morgan Freeman Blathering About How ID Check Disenfranchises Minorities. Or maybe it's Spike Lee Going After Zimmerman? Or maybe Steven Spielberg Helping Obama On The Failed Bain Attacks? Or maybe Sean Penn Stating That The Tea Party Wants To Lynch The President? Or Megan Fox Ripping On Middle America? Why you guys insist on pissing off half of your potential audience is beyond me but go ahead, knock yourself out.

Perhaps instead of forking your money over to Obama's election, how about some of y'all just pay your damn taxes?

Baker points to other celebrities who spout the Obama message about taxes and fairness. For example, singing star Lionel Richie owes the IRS upwards of $1 million. Others who are having tax problems include singer Roberta Flack, actor Lindsay Lohan, Country music star Willie Nelson, comedian Sinbad (real name: David Adkins), singer Robin Thicke, and actor Robert Downey, Jr., all vocal supporters of the Obama agenda.
And then there's Nicolas Cage, who paid the IRS over $6 million in back taxes and may still owe millions more, and celebrity skier Lindsey Vonn, who owes the IRS taxes, as well as several other high-profile celebrities, such as the members of The Blackeyed Peas.


Democrats Say The Darndest Things

Retiring Democrat: "The People Have Gotten Dumber". Haha. Um, no Mr. Congresscritter. People are getting smarter and you are just pissed that you don't hold a monopoly on the narrative. Sure, I agree YOUR base is dumber but I think more and more Americans are wising up to Democrat magic tricks and MSM ineptitude. I mean seriously, how long can the media report unexpected financial results and expect to be taken seriously? Broadcast licenses to philosophies? Surely, you don't mean MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, etc who still can't figure out how to cover Fast & Furious as well as they tried anything Republican related? If anything, elected officials have gotten dumber. Remember when Guam was going to tip over? Or passing legislation without reading it like Obamacare? "We Have To Pass The Bill So You Can Find Out What Is In It".

SEAL Vacation

So which of you morons is game for this? The Navy SEAL Vacation. For $1900 bucks??? One better get to blow a lot of shit up for that much cash and pain. I guess if you were to do this, the 'ettes might appreciate you a lot more.

Meat Allergy?

I sense PETA's hand in this. Lone Star Tick Bite May Make You Allergic To Meat. On the other hand, this could be the next crazy diet craze. I'm sure Mayor Nanny will require all citizens to receive tick bites by Christmas.

Hey, Pass Me A Beer

Cocksicles

No, not that! These Cocksicles.

Karen Choward has posted a detailed tutorial on Instructables for Cocksicles, sweet booze-filled cocktail popsicles (and no, they arenít phallic). Alcohol doesnít thoroughly freeze in a standard freezer, so she uses liquid nitrogen to get them rock solid. She warns to let them sit out for 30 minutes to avoid a freeze burn on your tongue.
