Here's Matthew Continetti on Real Clear Politics "Hollywood's White House":
Obama’s reelection is the ultimate studio production, a sort of political It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World that costs millions, features a cast of thousands, and stars some of the biggest names of the day. However, like all screwball comedies, things are not going as the protagonist intends. The entertainment industry has captured Obama’s presidency, and shifted the national agenda onto terrain familiar to California and New York liberals, but unfavorable to the independent voters who will decide 2012.Of course, there's a difference between "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" and the Left Coast liberals who heap praise and dollars upon Obama. One is a group of California-soaked crazies who harbor a deranged obsession with getting the "big W." The other is a movie.
