According to Chicago-Sun Times writer Bill Zwecker, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Diddy, and other celebrity supporters were reportedly advised to stay the hell away from Barack Obama’s rally in Grant Park last night and focus on attending the expected Obama inauguration in January.
‘Cause if weren’t Oprah your sweet puss just couldn’t get in.
“There really only needs to be one star in Grant Park, and that’s Barack. There will be plenty of time for a new President Obama to be surrounded by famous fans, all hopeful about a new administration,” said an anonymous campaign insider.
Damn! I was knew there was a reason why I didn’t see Dabnis and Vanessa crying and hugging each other on the screen as President Obama gave his speech.
After casting his ballot El Presidente of the Mouth Breeva Society told the AP “I felt like my vote was the vote that put him into office. It was down to one vote, and that was going to be my vote. And that may not be true, but that’s how much power it felt like I had.”
He continued, “”I’m not trying to be dramatic, but I just felt like, Martin Luther King, and I felt the whole civil rights movement, I felt all that energy, and I felt my kids. It was all there at one time. It was a joyous moment.”
I felt my kids too last night, just in another way. Tee hee.
