  6. 6

    Is it a coincidence that both of them are complete assholes?



  7. 7

    Perez, you might want to try being a free thinker and put down the Obama Kool-Aid. It would be funny if it weren't so sad.



  8. 8

    Does the douche give it back if he isnt elected?

    Or is he going to use it to create more "hope and change"?

  14. 14

    Wow. A bunch of 50 something year olds snapping their fingers to oldies. No thanks…this will be a major snooze fest!



  15. 15

    I could not care less! But in these tough economic times I find it very distasteful, on all 3 of their parts.



  16. 16

    i should get paid to come see the concerts. then i might vote for him. ever hear of bribes?! hello!!!!!



  17. 17

    cool! :)



  18. 18

    it *has* to be better in canada….eh?



  19. 19

    So….let me get this straight…this is looked at as a good thing by you but miley having a party, that DOES NOT infringe on the gay day event at all, and cost $250 which goes to charity isn't? So much so you call her names and the like?
    .
    .
    .
    You're an idiot. Srsly.



  20. 20

    gosh perez….
    it's been at least 20 since we've had the
    latest on ms. jackson
    what's the deal?



  21. 21

    fresh.

    Re: check the facts you twits
    OH

    GOD
    IT'S
    MILEY -
    HERSELF!!
    i just have to tell you that your
    father creeps me the fuck out



  23. 23

    Because they travel the world and understand how important it is to NOT keep the republicans in power!!!!!! Most Americans realize that as well but do not want to vote for a black man!



  24. 24

    bored.



  25. 25

    cheers!



  26. 26

    McCain is a war monger! Do you all see where our tax paying went in the last 8 years into IRAQ!! War is a requirement when it is necessary not when we want to oil!! Wake Up People!!!!



  27. 27

    Re: Bluebonnet – of course you'd say that…your from texas. thats okay, we understand



  28. 28

    When are the porn industry performers going to donate their talents for the cause.



  29. 29

    how about if y'all just pay me$10,000 to get on my webcam?! whoop-whoop!



  30. 30

    ?



  31. 31

    Re: amylala – That's about the level of intelligence I expected from a response here. You all are great for entertainment purposes…watching ya's wallow around in the dung piles left by Perez, a most hypocritical man, is vastly entertaining.



  32. 32

    Re: Bluebonnet – let me guess, your a toby keith fan



  33. 33


  34. 34

    ……And that's why celebrites lose face with the public in the end.

    And during this "drepression" the RIGHT thing to do is keep campaigning, throw parties and RAISE money….go messiah



  35. 35

    chicken.



  36. 36

    that's it?



  37. 37

    Yawn…

    Re: WakeUpPeople People like you make me sick! BLA! Go spread your hate somewhere else.



  41. 41

    Ah, Obama does care what the people think, doesn't he? I am sure the huddled masses yearning to be free will be pounding down the doors for this douche. Oh wait, no.. it's Obamamama. So I am guessing Hollywood hasbeens and drug dealers. Two of Obmamama's best support groups.



  42. 42

    Re: mama of 2 – I /am/ having fun :)



  43. 43

    and i thought nighttime and harry not being here was boring……..



  44. 44

    what a surprise!!!!! entertainers supporting the democratic candidate!!!! and he is black too! Now they won't have to make that manditory donation this year to the NAACP. jes…they support any democratic candidate, not matter who. I would like to see one election where all the over- paid pretentious support the republican candidate. Never gonna happen. Since most of us are hurting for money, it will be hollywood and maybe some park ave people going to it. I am tired of celebrities telling us who to vote for and calling people who support republicans stupid. if obama gets elected, it will be only a matter of time before BABs has a PJ party in the lincoln bedroom.



  45. 45

    YAY!! I love all 3 of them! Now if we could just throw Tom Petty into the mix, it would be pure perfection.

    OBAMA/BIDEN '08!!



  46. 46

    baracks miserable



  47. 47

    I wouldn't give $5 to see these two old hacks or the chimp!



  48. 48

    Re: Bluebonnet – no, actually, your probably more of a Darryl Worley fan. Dont worry, im sure he and Ricky Skaggs will be holding their own ho down for your guy too.

    Re: justtfaxlol Dude BaBs is pretty old, I'm sure she's stayed in the Whitehouse BUT then she's no Marlyn Monroe or Monica…. What's her name? Hummm

    Re: harrybalsac
    what about miley cyrus harry….you'd pay $250 to see her, wouldn't ya??
    or you'd at least send the monkey in your place.



  51. 51

    let me just generalize here and say FUCK you racists(especially Harry"chimp"Balls) and anyone who doesnt think that if we werent in the wrong country fighting an endless war that we wouldnt be in a better financial standing. YOU need to WAKE THE FUCK UP! Bush didnt cause the whole mess, but just admit it, HE WASTED MONEY WE COULD USE NOW ON HIS AND PAPPA BUSH's WAR. A war we should not even be in. And if you think we should have spent all that money in IRAQ, your a fuckin moron that doesnt even deserve to vote.



  52. 52

    Re: lefty lady – For the over 40 set maybe.

    Re: harrybalsac – its okay if you dont have a response…you can just say so. you dont have to do all that



  59. 59

    Obama Biden 08!! if you support McCain you are a disgrace to humanity …. really pathetic ignorant stupid brainwashed losers that will see your country rot and burn b4 you as it has slwly been happening with Bush. McCain is another Bush that chose a bimbo (Palin) to win votes even if he has no idea if she'd be able to deliver as president if he days bc thats how much he cares about this country….He is a selfish piece of shit in a sewer

    Re: obsess_muchI'm with you in some respects but you're O so NASTY! LOL Not as nasty as some of the usernames I see here but… Anyway, I think we are pretty smart; most of us. I don't think that any one president is going to "fix" the USA. BUT I do think things like concerts and crapola like what Perez has posted (Babbs), endless money flying here and there to a candidate that will most likely be president is a waste. I don't understand why these stupid Hollyweird jerk-offs don't help domestically! It's like the "in-thang" to help other countries. Why do you think we blow all our money on wars in the name of the GREAT USA! I love my country and I hate those that think money and tallent (I use that term lightly) will give us the answers! Ugh! We are idiots if we think most other countries give a shit about us



  61. 61

    it's called the ebony and 2 ivories concert.



  62. 62

    That's ridiculous. People are having trouble affording the gas in their car yet they are hoping someone's going to dish out 10K. That's just shameful. I see the audience now…..Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, their dumb wives….that hack Oprah, lohan and her nasty girlfriend, Puff Daddy (or whatever hes calling himself this week), the fat bitches from the View, Babs and Susan Saranden….and the rest of the Hollywood retards. Big Fun!



  63. 63

    further proving obama has fans rather than supporters…and we're supposed to believe he is in touch with average americans? they might as well start rolling out red carpets at these events, seacrest can cover it on E and ask obama who he's wearing



  64. 64

    That's because obama isn't even a real politician, he's a celebitician. God americans are so retarded.



  65. 65

    Not all americans, just democrats and other people voting for this clown.



  66. 66

    Re: Don't vote 4 McClown!! – You are the reason BlueHippo is a bad idea.

    hjjdlkjjdf;jd;ufnuf
    if i had the money…i'd so be there

    in the meantime, i'll worry about how i can get my foot in the door at the Hofstra debate
    cause i live 5 minutes away from there….it would fuckiing rock to be there



  68. 68

    Wow, he truly is a man for the people. And McCain is SOOO out of touch with mainstream America right?! What a joke…



  69. 69

    Re: obsess_much
    those ain't tits harry….they are um, flapjacks.
    she needs herself a sugar to get 'em fixed up right

    Re: amylala – yea, and photographers are knockin down the door to take photos of your tits.
    you back off my rachael leigh cook! just step away.



  71. 71

    Re: kanga3 – yea and obama can hold the parties at one of mccains houses, and ride in one of 13 of mccains cars!



  72. 72

    Billy Joel is my favorite musician and favorite celeb, but I hate it, absolutely HATE it when celebs use their fame to promote their politics and agenda. Billy's always been pretty good about keeping out of politics, stating it's no one's business but his to know who he's voting for, that he's just a musician, not a politician…WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THAT!?!?!?!? Oh, and like either candidate needs anymore frickin money.

    just another 2 idiots..have you all checked out obamas ties to freddie and fannie? Or were you too busy to see anything besides pelosi's random rants of blame on the republicans?? Look into it, an independent slanted candidate with a track records that shows it is a safer bet than the bought off democrats……I think they all just want to be "hollywood" only had no talent or good looks…..



  75. 75

    Ambulance ,with extra oxigen tanks!!, ALERT!



  76. 76

    yayy hofstra



  77. 77

    wow lefty celebrities supporting Obama! what a shock!!! YAAWWNNN! Bruce Springsteen's music sucks ass by the way!



  78. 78

    i hate bruce springsteen, and billy idol, and barack osama. if he's so much for change, why not put what he makes with those ridiculous prices out there to help people who are barely making it right now? all barack cares about is being a celebrity, he doesn't give a shit about the american people. well, unless they can pay $10,000 to go to a concert benefiting him. not wanting to vote for a black guy doesn't make you racist - i know alot of people who are by no mean racist who won't vote for him because he's black, as well as some black people who say the same thing. are they racist too, or does that only apply to white people?



  79. 79

    Re: Bluebonnet

    If perez was for McSame, would he be a free thinker the? Whats even MORE sad is the state our economy is in thanks to Little Bush. how funny is that dumbass?

    Maybe Little Bush will give it back for him….Yeah who needs hope and change when we've got death and destruction? whooo….
