Remember the famous Calvin Klein jeans commercial where a 16 year old Brooke Shields indicated that she wasn't wearing underwear?

Well, it doesn't look like much will come between the Obamas and Calvin Klein -- who is hosting a "high dollar" fundraiser being headlined by Michelle Obama.

I have no problem with Barack taking it upon himself to preach upon the importance of parenting and fatherhood to "regular folks" as he did on Sunday, and I agreed with much of what he said.  But if he's going to do that, he might want to follow through himself by shunning someone like Klein -- who may be rich and famous, but who's had to withdraw ads that were little more than kiddie porn.
