Unintentional Irony in The L.A. Times

Get a load of this lede in today's Times article, "Hollywood rallies for Sen. Clinton:"

Conservatives may strive to portray New York Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton as a polarizing figure, but she unified Hollywood Democratic political donors at a series of fundraisers that netted an estimated $1 million in a single evening, hosts estimated Thursday.
Hmmm. Where, oh where to begin? The phrase "dog bites man" comes to mind.

I am certainly shocked-- shocked!-- to learn that Hillary (who I did think was a polarizing figure) can unify the diverse, open-minded culture of Hollywood behind her presidential hopes. I mean, who'd-a thunk it?

Read the whole article. If you're like me, you'll have one of those deja vu moments: Hollywood rallying behind a big Democrat political savior-- where have we seen that before?
