Another reason to vote McCain/Palin

You can help spoil the big party they're planning for a guy who hasn't gotten the job:

It's probably not surprising that a lot of Barack Obama's biggest celebrity supporters -- both from Hollywood and the music world -- were clamoring for VIP invites to tonight's big rally in Grant Park.

While the Democratic nominee and his staff are thankful for both the big checks and outspoken expressions of support from all those famous faces, I've learned from a key Obama insider that a number of big-time boosters have been told politely -- but very firmly -- to stay away tonight...

''There really only needs to be one star in Grant Park, and that's Barack,'' said the source, a high-profile elected official who spoke on the condition of anonymity, since he's not authorized to speak for the campaign on this issue.

How about no stars? I like that idea even better.

And yet I keep seeing all this stuff about how the Obama campaign doesn't want to act like he's already won. As if he hasn't been doing that since the minute he elbowed Hillary down the basement steps and was all like, "What? I was just stretching."
