When Even TMZ is Embarrassed by the Presidency, How Much is Left to Salvage?

As Pistol Pete posted earlier today, some unusually slavish behavior happened at last night’s fundraiser at Gwyneth Paltrow’s estate in Brentwood, California. This event was so fawning that even the Hollywood smut merchant TMZ has begun to bemoan that the once-respectable Office of the President of the United States has become seriously damaged.

The idiocy of Hollywood was in full bloom Thursday night when Gwyneth Paltrow turned an already-embarrassing Hollywood fundraiser into “The Dating Game.”

Paltrow — who hosted the event at her Brentwood home — gushed as she introduced President Obama, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”

She then showed utter ignorance about, and contempt for, the Constitution and separation of powers — the basic tenets of our government — by saying, “It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass.”

It’s the latest example of how demeaning it has become for Presidents to act like circus animals — performing for crowds that will feed them … in this case, feed them with money to line political coffers.

It’s revolting that celebrities and other rich people feel such a need for self-importance — contributing money but ONLY if they can have their picture taken with the president and tell their friends they had dinner with him. If they’re so committed to him, just send him a check and let him stay in Washington and do his job.

Oh my.  [Image by Salon.com.]

Also from HotAir: Gwyneth Paltrow to Obama: You’re very handsome and you should have all the power you need for your agenda.

Ten Buck Friday – Week Six: Tired of Embracing the Suck Yet?

Week Six of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek new life for the Senate, to Boldly Beam Harry Reid back to the planet he came from!

Focusing on the Senate races, is it worth ten bucks a week to you (roughly the cost of ZMalfoy’s yearly share of Suburban Washington DC taxes that go to the upkeep of the Presidential golf course at Andrews AFB) to eliminate Reid’s control and give the Senate responsible adult leadership again?

With that in mind, this week we look to the Senate seat in Alaska. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Dan Sullivan?

Real Clear Politics has Sullivan up 4.8 and rates the race as a toss up.


You can contribute to Dan Sullivan below. Good luck and Godspeed!

Also consider these other important close races!
Contribute to Dan Sullivan Here
Contribute to Tom Cotton Here
Contribute to Joni Ernst Here
Contribute to Bill Cassidy Here
Contribute to Thom Tillis Here

Polling Updates Looking Good!!

Bill Cassidy is up to +5.6 from last week’s +1.3
Thom Tillis dropped from +1 to -3.4
Tom Cotton jumped from +1.7 to +4.4
Joni Ernst was +.2, now up to +1.5
Dave Perdue was at 3.8, dropped slightly to +3.2
Dan Sullivan up a tenth!


Cory Gardner (next week) is up from +.8 to +1.3
Scott Brown (2 wks out) was down -4.5, now -6.5
Terri Lynn Land (3 wks.) from -4.7 to -4.3

Six TBFs trending upward. All close races. It’s encouraging.

(If you mark your contribution as “Ten Buck Friday”, they’ll see if the blogosphere can give them a little bump.)

All of you know I generally post bizarre,off-the-wall stuff on Fridays. With the elections just over three weeks away I felt compelled to do a normal post for the time being. If I can remain coherent long enough I may be able to post some lighter things when i finish this one. We’ll see.
