It’s not just the Obama/Clooney traffic that aggravated L.A. residents tonight. It was the hypocrisy, stupid.

From grizzled L.A. Times columnist Steve Lopez, a big two thumbs down. Way down:

They say tonight’s soiree for President Obama at George Clooney’s house in Studio City is supposed to gross $15 million, and the operative word is “gross.”

Yeah, pardon me for being such a party pooper, but isn’t it a little offensive that 150 of L.A.’s high rollers would shell out $40,000 to kiss Clooney’s ring and get maybe 10 seconds of face time with Obama?

And what about the thousands of saps who pumped an average of $23 into Obama’s campaign coffers for the chance to be one of the two peons chosen to break bread with the VIPs?

I’d rather watch the Lakers game from a bar stool, which in fact is what I may do.

I haven’t seen Clooney’s guest list, but I’d bet $2 -– and not a penny more –- that his house will be full of that particularly unctuous strain of liberals who live for events like this that make them feel good about themselves but don’t really give a toss for their own community. Los Angeles could end up declaring bankruptcy and these posers will be telling friends about their big night at George’s house.

Fun fact: Fundraiser co-host Jeffrey Katzenberg is under investigation by the SEC, according to the Washington Free Beacon:

President Obama’s record $15 million fundraiser tonight at the home of actor George Clooney is being co-hosted by DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg. In addition to being the largest single donor to the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA at $2 million, Katzenberg’s company is currently under investigation by the SEC for allegedly bribing Chinese officials.

The SEC investigation comes just weeks after Katzenberg announced this February that DreamWorks had struck a $2 billion deal to open a studio in Shanghai under the Oriental Dreamworks brand. The China deal was inked in a ceremony that featured Katzenberg alongside Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping, who stopped off in Los Angeles in February on his way back to China after a series of high-level meetings at the White House, including meetings with Obama.

Mockery, as always, is the best medicine. Comedy writer Ben Hoffman (endorsed by our Red Eye fave Andy Levy) pretended to “live-tweet” the Obama/Clooney soiree:
