Hooray for Howardwood!

Newsweek has a little feature on the success Dean has had lately raising money in Hollywood.

The Reiners (father and son) are leading the charge, but Whoopi Goldberg and Melissa Etheridge are also mentioned, and Alec Baldwin seems sold. Dean is also collecting showbiz money on both coasts, not just the left one.

Republicans love to deride anyone raising money from entertainers as being out-of-touch, but I think Americans might feel $250 million (Bush’ fundraising estimate) is more out-of-touch. Time will tell on that one.

One correction. The Newsweek story said Dean is 49. He’s 54.
