As Economy Tanks, McCain to Hold L.A. Fundraiser

Even as news is spreading across the internet and television about the defeat of the bailout bill in Congress and continued economic turmoil McCain Thumbs Up.jpgJohn McCain is getting ready for a massive Hollywood fundraiser on Wednesday.

You may remember that McCain pulled a media stunt last week when he claimed to have suspended his campaign to rush back to DC to deal with the economic problem. Of course, along the way McCain stopped off for an interview with Katie Couric, an opulent dinner with Joe Lieberman and lots of down time at his Beltway apartment.

The fundraiser sponsored by the McCain-Palin Victory California Leadership team comes only a few weeks after McCain harshly attacked Barack Obama for holding a fundraiser in L.A. "with his celebrity friends." I am guessing that when McCain says "maverick" he really means hypocrite.

From the Huffington Post:

The McCain-Palin Victory California Leadership team is sponsoring the October 1 event at the Century Plaza Hyatt Regency in L.A. Supporters who bundle at least $250,000 receive entrance to a host committee dinner and private reception; others can attend the general reception for $1,000 per person (or $2,500 per person for a limited edition "McCain-Palin CA" lapel pin).

This reminds me of how McCain and his BFF George Bush celebrated McCain's birthday while Hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans. It is yet another sign that McCain is out of touch with the realities of working Americans and why his "four more years of Bush" campaign is not what we need to move our country forward.
