Truly the most bizarre fundraising email ever..
Ann Althouse got an email today from Michelle Obama telling her (and presumably thousands like her) to give up a meal this week and donate the money saved to the Obama re-election campaign.
...Hey Michelle, we’ll all stop eating when YOU DO. You telling anyone to skip meals is like Liza Minnelli lecturing on sobriety.
The actual email reads as follows:
I know your life is full -- with work, or school, or family -- and yet you still find the time to help out when you can.
You may have a tight budget, but you give what you can afford.
A woman recently told the campaign her family skipped a pizza dinner at their favorite place so that they could make a difference in this election.
That is the commitment that drives this campaign.
If you can support Barack with a donation today, please know it makes a huge difference. If we win, it will be because of what you did at moments like this....
So skip a few meals for Dear Leader.
It's the least you can do.
Update: Best response at Free Republic: "Do you just use your EBT card to donate a meal to Obama?"
