Sarah Palin crashes Obama fundraiser

President George W. Bush and Alaska’s Governor Sarah Palin made for an unlikely addition to over 150 attendees at “gObama,” a Barack Obama fundraiser last Saturday night in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Los Angeles, resulting in $3,300 in donations for the Obama campaign.

Lindsey Walker tells me after she and her boyfriend Chris Goodson moved into the rented Mount Washington home they began brainstorming ways to utilize its three backyard patios for events and other small functions, Initially thinking a film festival or poetry reading, after the idea of an Obama fundraiser was brought up, it stuck.

“It was finally something bigger than all of us individually that moved us to act,” Walker said. “This campaign has created a connection between people that I haven’t seen since 911 – where complete strangers can comfortably recognize each other on the street because of the symbol of Barack Obama.”

Six weeks of planning and “strategery” followed, with friend Jessica Pregnolato and Lindsey’s sister Hilary joining the team.

Emceed by comedian Lauren Weedman, the resulting event featured music from the US Mail Band, DJ Nick Romaniak, the Eric Layer Band, Joe Green and the Heavy Steppers, and Silver Phial.

Additional entertainment included a video by Radical Lyons (Peter Darchuk), and the aforementioned visit by George W Bush (aka Chris Goodson) and Governor Sarah Palin (aka Jessica Chisum). In spite of being impersonators, the crowd spared no expense booing the two and challenging them with questions that would have unprintable even on the Daily Kos. Chisum, who also hails from Alaska, demonstrated her perfect Palin accent as she proudly showed off her son Trig swaddled in a bear pelt.

A photo booth by theatrical set designer Gary Smoot was set up where attendees could put their faces into the infamous Obama New Yorker cover, while more professional portraits could be taken by the We Are the Ones Project, who have been taking photos of Obama supporters across the nation. Finally, attendees who wanted to send Obama a message could be interviewed at the video booth.
