Emily Post Would be Appalled

From today's Inbox, a little note from Michelle --

Moogie --

Barack turns 51 next month, and there will be a little celebration at our house in Chicago.

We'd like to give grassroots supporters an opportunity to join in the fun. You guys deserve it, and I know Barack would personally love to see you there.

Donate $3 or whatever you can today, and you'll be automatically entered to get your name added to the guest list.

Barack's birthday is one of the last opportunities he'll get for a little downtime before the final weeks of the election.

That won't stop me from teasing him about all those new gray hairs he has -- though I think it's fair to say he's earned every one.

So if you're standing with Barack for the final months of his final campaign, there's no better way to show it than by making a donation to build this grassroots organization today.

If you do, you'll be automatically entered for the chance to join him for his birthday celebration in Chicago. We'll also fly you out and take care of all the travel arrangements.

Enter today:

Thank you,


Geez!  These are the gift-grubbingest people I've heard of in a long time!  "Come to my party, but not until you've sent me money.  It might not be a bad idea to bring a little extra cash with you if you win."

They seriously need a crash course in etiquette.  Or, as I pointed out more than a year ago, Southern Mothers.


  1. Sounds like some TV evangelists.

  2. You could sit Shelley down in etiquette classes four hours a day, five days a week for the next decade and she STILL wouldn't get it. Is my $0.02.

  3. Great comparison, Lou!

    Your two cents goes pretty darn far, Buck.

    Bingo, PH.
