During this week's Tibet rally and Olympic flame frustration, the possible future leader of the free world, Barack Obama, sneaked into San Francisco on Sunday, hitting Billionaires Row for a pricey, Getty-hosted fundraiser.
Neither you nor we were invited. Alas.
According to Leah Garchik:
In the Haight, stencils of Barack Obama's smiling face are decorating the sidewalk. But in real life, he is turning up in more lucrative venues: The candidate will be around here on April 6, at a series of events that includes three $2,300-a-head maximum-strength fundraisers: Sara and Sohaib Abbasi are throwing a luncheon in Atherton; he'll zip up to Nancy and Bob Farese's house in Kentfield in mid-afternoon; and proceed from there to Ann and Gordon Getty's in San Francisco.
Fortunately, controversial photog Zombietime was there to catch all of the action happening outside the Getty manse. Check out some of his choice images from today's top-drawer luncheon, or check out Zombie'e site for the full picture.
