Obama Speaks to Hollywood Millionaires about the Menace of 'Inequality' -- By Jim Geraghty, National Review

President Obama on Wednesday raised money for House and Senate candidates at the home of Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn and his wife Cindy, in an effort to boost Hollywood contributions in advance of what looks to be a difficult midterm election season for Democrats . . .
At one point, as he talked about the problems of inequality, a car alarm went off, and Obama quipped, "Sound the alarm, because we've got a problem."
Tickets to the event started $10,000 per person, including dinner and a photo op. Those donating $32,400 per couple got listed as "sponsors" and could take part in a VIP reception. Those donating $64,800 per couple were listed as "hosts" and could take part in a "VIP clutch."
Can you think of any better place to discuss the "problems of inequality" than at the home of a Hollywood mogul and hanging with movie stars who paid $64,800?
