Barack Obama's After Party: Celebs Stay Out

Barack Obama's After Party: Celebs Stay Out-photo

Presidential candidate Barack Obama has drawn major support from the Hollywood community, not the least of which was displayed at the Democratic National Convention in August.

And today, Election Day, the quest all finally comes to an end—possibly in victory for the 47-year-old Senator from Illinois.

But don't expect to see many famous faces holding court with Obama tonight at his rally in Chicago, says the Sun Times.

''There really only needs to be one star in Grant Park, and that's Barack,'' an anonymous elected official told the paper.

''There will be plenty of time for a new President Obama to be surrounded by famous fans, all hopeful about a new administration.''

The newspaper notes that while Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Sean ''Diddy'' Combs, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Ben Affleck were advised to skip the Chicago festivities and focus on attending the expected Obama inauguration in January, there's one person you just don't say no to: Oprah Winfrey.

The upcoming 30 Rock star is expected to join the Obama family to watch the returns in the candidate's suite at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

And once the big "O" sets her mind to something, there's no stopping her.

    Speaking of Barack Obama: Barack Obama is a racial-minority individual, and in his heart and mind he inevitably does not endorse hate crimes committed by George W. Bush. George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog). George W. Bush did in fact commit innumerable hate crimes. And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention. Many people know what Bush did. And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world. Bush was absolute evil. Bush is now like a fugitive from justice. Bush is a psychological prisoner. Bush has a lot to worry about. Bush can technically be prosecuted for hate crimes at any time. In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

BUSH IS THE WORST PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY” BLOG OF ANDREW YU-JEN WANG ______________________ I am not sure where I had read it before, but anyway, it is a linguistically excellent statement, and it goes kind of like this: “If only it were possible to ban invention that bottled up memories so they never got stale and faded.” Oh wait—off the top of my head—I think the quotation came from my Lower Merion High School yearbook.

    Of course, Oprah would eat him if he didn't invite her to his shindig.
