ObamaBoxer.jpgPresident Barack Obama is back on the West Coast to raise more cash for Sen. Barbara Boxer and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Tickets for the reception tonight at the Fairmont Hotel start at $250. High-rollers will shell out up to $17,500 a piece for a picture with the president and access to a VIP dinner.

This is the second time this year the president has come to California to help fill Boxer's campaign coffers in anticipation of a tough re-election battle.

Obama headlined a series of events in Los Angeles April 19 and netted $3.5 million for Boxer and the Democratic National Committee. The three-term senator is looking to scoop up $1.5 million more with this soiree, the San Francisco Chronicle has reported.

Meanwhile, Mickey Kaus, the political blogger challenging Boxer in the primary, has booked up the California Room down the street at the Holiday Inn in San Francisco and invited Boxer to an afternoon debate before her big event.

We're guessing she won't show, but Kaus' campaign has promised to provide "two lecterns and a pitcher of water, for a nice, civil debate" just in case.

And he says he'll be debating whether or not the incumbent cares to join.

The three Republicans vying to challenge Boxer in the general election will all be on hand to trade blows on the airwaves today.

GOP Senate candidates Tom Campbell, Chuck DeVore and Carly Fiorina will come together at 2 p.m. for what's being billed as a "discussion" on KFI AM 640's "John and Ken Show."

That program description is a bit more mild mannered than what's to follow, a "Trial of the Tax Traitors" railing on the "Liars, Thieves and Whores" who "(raped) you of your tax money."

Those would be the legislative leaders honored yesterday with the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage award for their role in negotiating the February 2009 budget package.

The entire program will be streamed online here.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com

Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at feedback@sacbee.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to feedback@sacbee.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
