Sen. Barack Obama raised $11 million for his campaign and the Democratic Party at two star-studded fundraising events in Southern California Tuesday night, including one featuring a concert by Barbra Streisand. The presidential nominee’s night began with a reception and dinner at $28,500 per person at the famous Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, and ended with Streisand’s performance at the nearby Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel, which cost $2,500 per ticket. Before a crowd of some 800 people packed into the hotel’s ballroom, Obama started his speech by addressing the current Wall Street mess, stating: “I am not in a celebratory mood,” before citing a host of problems with falling incomes and joblessness. “A whole lot of Americans have been going through their own quiet storm,” he said. Obama also sought to reassure concerned donors, as polls show him in a dead heat with John McCain.


At this snapshot in the race, there is no other issue — not pigs, not sexism, not the surge, not anything, really, that bodes particularly well for Team McCain. It’s 48-43 in the latest New York Times/CBS poll — the Palin bounce bouncing right back to where we were pre-conventions. Ditto Quinnipiac, which gives Obama a 14-point lead among women and a 49 – 45 lead nationwide. “Despite an intense effort to distance himself from the way his party has done business in Washington, Senator John McCain is seen by voters as far less likely to bring change to Washington than Senator Barack Obama,” Robin Toner and Adam Nagourney reports in the Times write-up. “The latest poll indicates ‘the Palin effect’ was, at least so far, a limited burst of interest. . . . The Times/CBS News poll suggested that Ms. Palin’s selection has, to date, helped Mr. McCain only among Republican base voters; there was no evidence of significantly increased support for him among women in general.”


In his first interview since being acquitted of child pornography charges, R. Kelly says he was betrayed by those closest to him, but hopes he can put the case behind him for good and move forward. “I can’t keep answering these questions,” he told BET’s Toure in a special that aired Tuesday night. “If you were charged with something and found innocent, then you can’t be found guilty for being found innocent.” The 41-year-old singer was arrested in 2002 for allegedly videotaping himself having sex with a 13-year-old girl. At his trial, prosecutors were unable to verify the authenticity of the tape, or the identity of the female seen in the footage. Kelly was cleared of all 14 charges. When asked by Toure if he is attracted to teenage girls, Kelly replied: “When you say teenage, how old do you mean?” He added: “I have some 19-year-old friends, but I don’t like anybody illegal if that’s what we’re talking about, underage.”


Kanye West says he has re-recorded his new song “Love Lockdown” after people posting feedback on his Web site complained about the original version. “Your prayers have been answered!! There’s a new version of ‘Love Lockdown’ coming,” he wrote. “We used new taiko drums, and I re-sung it. … It’s being mastered now.” The artist used the recent MTV VMA awards to debut the song, which features him crooning in a heavily Auto-Toned singing voice. A number of fans on Ye’s blog felt the Auto-Tone was too much.


Charles Rangel

The Congressional Black Caucus says it offers its “100 percent support” to Democratic congressman Charlie Rangel despite Republican calls for him to step down as House Ways and Means Chairman pending an Ethics Committee investigation into his taxes. The Caucus support came one day after Monday’s inconclusive 90-minute meeting between Rangel and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who also announced her support for Rangel. The Harlem Representative admitted last week that in recent years he has underpaid his taxes by about $10,000. His lawyer says Rangel flubbed his tax return by failing to record some $75,000 of rental income he received from a beach house he owns at a posh Dominican Republic resort. Rangel says it was an honest mistake, explaining that he didn’t know how much income he received from the property because his Dominican business partners would “start speaking Spanish.”

Hip-Hop star Pharrell a cast of celebrities in a new $300 million dollar advertising campaign being launched by technology behemoth, Microsoft. On September 4, Microsoft debuted two spots featuring comedian and spokesman Jerry Seinfeld and company founder Bill Gates, as part of the biggest ad spend in the company’s history. One advertisement features Seinfeld and Gates shoe shopping while engaging in idle chatter and the second features Seinfeld and Gates engaged in conversation at a blue collar family’s dinner table. Despite being on the air for less than two weeks, the company is pulling the ads, in favor of a new campaign featuring Williams, Deepak Chopra and actress Eva Longoria. A Microsoft spokesman said the ad campaign was “completely in accordance” with the company’s plans and denied that a lukewarm response from consumers was to blame for the change. The “second phase” of Microsoft’s ad campaign featuring Pharrell has the tagline: “Windows. Life without walls.”
