Democrats were shocked, SHOCKED by Dick Cheney but not garbage spewed from Whoopi, Leguizamo & Co. Here are their "jokes."

Hypocrisy and bawdy jokes are all part of the game at Democrat fund raisers

The Demagogue Train keeps rolling along. Once again, Hollywood and liberal elites partied in one of their left-wing bastions, New York, laughed and guffawed at one nasty joke after another directed at President Bush and Republicans. Last night, angry liberals lived up to their pessimistic, negative, demoralizing, hateful reputation as they launched raunchy attacks over and over again to the delight of the candidates and fellow liberals in the audience. Pretty pathetic.

Who's to blame for the Hollywood no-talents who are able to spend thousands of dollars at fundraisers and spew their infantile political drivel? We are. We pay them money every time we go to their clunky movies and buy their forgettable albums.

Whoopi Goldberg delivered an X-rated rant full of sexual innuendoes against President Bush last night at a Radio City gala that raised $7.5 million for the newly minted Democratic ticket of John Kerry and John Edwards. Waving a bottle of wine, she fired off a stream of vulgar sexual wordplays on Bush's name in a riff about female genitalia, and boasted that she'd refused to let Team Kerry clear her material. "I Xeroxed my behind and I folded it up in an envelope and I sent it back with a big kiss mark on because we're Democrats - we're not afraid to laugh," she said. She addressed fresh-faced vice-presidential candidate Edwards as "Kid," and "young Mr. Edwards" and cracked, "He looks like he is about 18." "I'm going to card his ass tomorrow."

Great job, Whoopi. That's going to help make John Edwards sound presidential.

If anyone wondered how a multimillion-dollar stars could denounce Bush as a tool of the rich, actor Paul Newman gave his answer. "Tax cuts for wealthy thugs like me are criminal," Newman said. "I put my tax cut in my sock and buried it away. In November, let's sock it to them."

If Paul Newman thought his tax cut was undeserved, why is it in his sock? Why not give more money to the government if it's such a good steward of his money?

Other celebs also competed to bash Bush. Singer John Mellencamp sang a specially written song that called the president "just another cheap thug" and ridiculed him as the "Texas bambino."

So much for the wholesome days of Jack and Diane from John Cougar, er, John Cougar Mellencamp, er, John Mellencamp. That's authenticity for ya.

Kerry could be seen laughing uproariously during part of Goldberg's tirade - and neither he nor Edwards voiced a single objection to its tone when they spoke to the crowd.

Can't offend the Democrat fat cats. Still gotta pump for liberal dollars in Beverly Hills.

Also on the Bush-bashing team was comedian Chevy Chase, who claimed the president is dumb as "an egg-timer" and said Edwards will make Vice President Dick Cheney look "as bright as a bundt cake" when they debate next fall.

Chevy Chase is rehearsing jokes for his next movie, "National Lampoon's Democratic Convention."

Edwards said it was "a great honor" to be there and insisted, "This campaign will be a celebration of real American values."

Edwards probably wasn't paying attention to Whoopi and Chevey Chase. Then again, does anybody?

Latin comedian John Leguizamo said he refuses to believe there are any Hispanic Republicans, claiming that's "an oxymoron," because "Latins for Republicans - it's like roaches for Raid."

No amount of stereotyping is too much for Racist Democrats. Hey John, I'm a Hispanic Republican. Does that mean I'm never capable of learning English and must depend on Democrat politicians for my livelihood?

Screen legend Paul Newman blasted the Bush tax cuts, saying, "I am a traitor to my class. I think that tax cuts to wealthy thugs like me are borderline criminal - I live very high off the hog."

There he goes again. Newman is still speaking, I think.

Jon Bon Jovi opened the $7.5 million rainmaker by taking a little license with the chorus from George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun" - and a big shot at President Bush. "It's been four years since it was clear," Bon Jovi crooned to roars of approval.

Bon Jovi has to play a former Beatle's song, no one can stand his own music.

Clad in an off-the-shoulder, pinkish sarong-style dress, "Sex and the City" babe Sarah Jessica Parker said she wants a President who will "look after all people and not just the privileged few."

Yes, Sarah Jessica Parker is right. Look at the 5,500 who showed up last night. They are not the privileged few. Wait, they paid $250 to $25,000 a seat!

They gave the Democratic ticket a seven-minute standing ovation and cheered every harsh jibe at Bush and Vice President Cheney in a sharp-tongued evening that contrasted sharply with the upbeat tone the campaign tried to set after picking Edwards.

So much for Edwards positive campaign from the Democratic primaries. Welcome to the Big Show, John Edwards.

And quote of the night...
"BECAUSE of Bush's tax cuts, I saved a million and a half in taxes last year. Does anyone think that's fair?" — Ben Affleck at a John Kerry fund-raiser.

No, Ben, it's fair that you got a tax cut. But, do you think it's fair that you get paid $20 million per movie?

All of the above quotes come from The New York Post and The New York Daily News
