Speaking of being "out of touch"...

...Barack Obama did some expensive partying and fund-raising with the Hollywood glitterati the other night:

"Barack Obama partied with Hollywood celebrities Tuesday night and with the help of Oscar-winning singer and actress Barbra Streisand raised an eye-popping $9 million for his presidential campaign and the Democratic Party. The night was split into two glitzy events, a reception and dinner costing $28,500 each at the Greystone Mansion, followed by entertainment by Streisand at the nearby Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. About 250-300 people were expected at the dinner and about 800 at the entertainment, which cost $2,500 a ticket."

Yeah, boy, I'm sure blue-collar Americans really identify with that.
