As millions suffered without power and as law enforcement continued to find bodies in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Bette Midler and her Obama-supporting pals found time to throw a lavish Halloween party in Manhattan, just miles from where streets remained underwater.
These 1 percenters seemed blissfully unconcerned about the situation just a few blocks away as they partied late into the night at the Waldorf Astoria hotel. Midler was joined by Michael Kors and, fittingly, Debra Messing dressed as Marie Antoinette. Really.
Midler is a loud and proud Obama supporter, recently tweeting: “All the things Pres. Obama put in place are starting to work! Just starting! Don’t give up the Ship of State to the untrustworthy.” She also suggested that the YouTube filmmaker blamed by the Obama administration for the Benghazi attacks be jailed.
Debra Messing is an Obama backer. So too is Kors.
Al Gore was slated to show up to give the keynote address. He couldn’t make it, Midler tweeted, thanks to the Hurricane and global warming.
Midler raised $1.8 million for her charity. She did, however, add that throwing this event was “unbelievably stressful” thanks to Sandy.
We agree at last. Repeating this tedious stereotype to the effect that whitey can’t dance and can’t dress hip is nothing more than a racial slur. But for some reason it seems to be acceptable. Well it isn’t. I’m calling Boris.
This is a cartoon about Romney wanting to cut back into the media, which Obama has dominated throughout due to Sandy; and both wanting to have the ‘right’ dance moves throughout the crisis. Don’t see how it is racist? Unless you think Mitt’s purple velvet suit is a bit stereotypical, but Mormon’s don’t dance, do they?
RRM, as it’s probably his very last and only chance to score re-election, then as a professional pol, he probably does “love it”. Never let a crisis go to waste (old Chicago political saying…). And this is an event almost tailor-made for Obama, he doesn’t have to do anything or talk to anyone seriously, or actually achieve anything, he can just, well, LOOK presidential, something he hasn’t for the entire re-election campaign (which has lasted approximately 3 years 9 months).
To my mind though it puts both men in a bad light as regards dress sense and taste. But to criticize Romney is of course just natural, to criticize “The ONE” is racist, doncha know ?
