Now Michelle is getting into it!

Another Demonrat beggar email, this time from Mrs. Osama:
Friend --

Not everyone knows how to prepare for a dinner like this. As someone who's eaten countless meals with my husband, I want to tell you the one thing to do if you're selected to join him...

Just relax. Barack wants this dinner to be fun, and he really loves getting to know supporters like you.

I hope you'll take him up on it before Friday's deadline.

Will you donate $3 or more today and be entered to have dinner with Barack?

These dinners mean a lot to Barack. They're a chance for him to talk with a few of the people who are driving the campaign -- and a chance for him to say thank you.

So come prepared to tell your story, and say whatever's on your mind.

Don't miss the opportunity to be there. Donate $3 today, before the September 30th deadline:



I wonder if the "House Democrats" finally ran out of matching money?

Not only is the First Buttcrack* now adding her pleas to the chorus of pitiful cries for money, you get
entered into a sweepstakes to have dinner with The Won himself.

From the Osama website:

Want to join President Obama for dinner?

Make a donation today to be automatically registered for a chance to have dinner with President Obama and three other supporters.
And here I thought private sweepstakes and lotteries across state lines were illegal under federal law...

From this site:

To avoid being classified as an illegal lottery, sweepstakes must ensure that at least one of these elements is missing. Because prizes and luck are central to sweepstakes where the winners are drawn at random, legitimate promotions can never have consideration.
That means you will never have to pay to enter legitimate sweepstakes and purchasing a product will not improve your odds.
Seems to me that "making a donation in order to be entered" is "consideration".

Calling Eric Holder...

*Funny story - a few years ago back when The Won was a lowly Illinois senator, my brother-in-law and his wife were in "good seats" at Wrigley Field. They were sitting right behind the Osamas, and he was directly behind Michelle.

She was wearing fashionably low-cut pants, and he had a perfect view of her buttcrack for the entire game.

It scarred him for life.
