Hey gang! Are you cool enough to attend Barack Obama’s super awesome birthday fun super-party? You are now! All you have to do is donate money to Obama’s campaign…and then your name is entered into a raffle…and then you MAY get selected to attend the birthday party! SO AWESOME! Right? Because there is nothing cooler than having to pay to possibly get invited to a birthday party. (And yes, that was all sarcasm in case it didn’t come across in the writing).
Here’s the invite that Glenn’s “friend” Denny got in the mail today from the Obama campaign:
Have you ever gotten to do something so cool you’re almost jealous of yourself?
Pretty sure this would count: On August 12th, just three weeks before the Democratic National Convention and 12 weeks before Election Day, President Obama will have a few friends over to mark his 51st birthday—in the backyard of his Chicago home.
And you’re invited.
Make a donation today to be automatically entered for a chance to be there—flight and hotel paid for.
Look, campaigns are hard work, both for the President and the millions of people like you who are building it on the ground. When you factor in the ridiculous amounts of money the Romney campaign and pro-Romney super PACs are raising, we’re going to have to work even harder to win than we did in 2008.
Let’s have some fun together before the final push to Election Day.
“Pretty much the most humble thing ever coming from a President,” Glenn joked.
