Oh. My. Michelle Obama's latest fundraising email: skip meals to fund Barack's campaign

To paraphrase Michelle Antoinette, "Let them eat cake nothing."

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:

Ann --

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?"

Maybe I'll send him my half-eaten baloney sandwich in lieu of cash.

The reason why they did not fill BoA Stadium with bussed in people from all over is because the bus companies wanted cash up front not a IOU to be paid later, even the Unions did not have Cash to pay up front.

in this economy that would mean that some families would have to skip the only meal they can afford.

This can't be real? What the heck? I'm not an Obama supporter by any stance, but I really honestly have a hard time believing this is true.

She's a closet eater. You'll soon have to pay for your own transportation, or just ride the BUS. I'll send you tokens.

I cannot that anyone no matter how racist or gullible would believe nonsense like this.

Boy, talk about desperate people and the things they will say and do. Even the stupidest of people reading the email can see that she never said "skip meals to fund Barack's campaign".

Keep on with drinking the kool-aid folks! Ya'll deserve everything you get! LMAO!!!

Didn't I just read that the Obamas ran up a tab of over 1 billion dollars with all their vacations,junkets,date nights etc? Maybe they should have thought ahead and skipped one or two of those fun fests?
