$50 Well Spent

Gosh, I don’t know what I would do without MoDo’s insightful analysis and dazzling wordplay…

Hillary is not David Geffen’s dreamgirl.

[Geffen talks about Obama Good, Hillary Bad.]

Barack Obama has made an entrance in Hollywood unmatched since Scarlett O’Hara swept into the Twelve Oaks barbecue. Instead of the Tarleton twins, the Illinois senator is flirting with the DreamWorks trio: Mr. Geffen, Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg, who gave him a party last night that raised $1.3 million and Hillary’s hackles.

She didn’t stand outside the gates to the Geffen mansion, where glitterati wolfed down Wolfgang Puck savories, singing the Jennifer Hudson protest anthem “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.” [Obviously, cocktail-weenie-deprivation is the worst thing MoDo can imagine.]But she’s not exactly Little Miss Sunshine, either  [Look! It’s another movie reference! Oh, MoDo, will your cleverness never cease?]. Hillary loyalists have hissed at defecting donors to remember the good old days of jumping on the Lincoln Bedroom bed.


Who can pay attention to the Oscar battle between “The Queen” and “Dreamgirls” when you’ve got a political battle between a Queen and a Dreamboy? [Oohs and ahhs – dazzling, I say!]


She is overproduced and overscripted. “It’s not a very big thing to say, ‘I made a mistake’ on the war, and typical of Hillary Clinton that she can’t,” Mr. Geffen says. “She’s so advised by so many smart advisers who are covering every base. I think that America was better served when the candidates were chosen in smoke-filled rooms.” [Good idea; we should just cut the ignorant rabble out of the democratic process entirely.]

The babble here is not about “Babel”; [She did it again! Awesome!] it’s about the battle of the billionaires. Not only have Ron Burkle and David Geffen been vying to buy The Los Angeles Times — they have been vying to raise money for competing candidates. Mr. Burkle, a supermarket magnate, is close to the Clintons, and is helping Hillary parry Barry Obama by arranging a fund-raiser for her in March, with a contribution from Mr. Spielberg. [“parry Barry”! Brilliant!]

…Can Obambi stand up to Clinton Inc.?…. [“Obambi.” Niiiice. Get used to that one, you’ll be hearing it a lot. I wonder, did she come up with that one on her own, or did she have help?]


[Geffen and Bill Clinton] fell out in 2001, when Mr. Clinton gave a pardon to Marc Rich after rebuffing Mr. Geffen’s request for one for Leonard Peltier. “Marc Rich getting pardoned? An oil-profiteer expatriate who left the country rather than pay taxes or face justice?” Mr. Geffen says. “Yet another time when the Clintons were unwilling to stand for the things that they genuinely believe in. Everybody in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it’s troubling.”

Trashing just one Democratic candidate at a time is sooo 2004.

Oh well, at least she makes me feel ever so much better about my own writing.

    MoDo needs to have her nails filed down to the quick.

    What? No digs at their clothing?

    MoDo needs to have her nails filed down to the quick.

    But then how would she make her living?

    Oh, right – I don’t care.
