We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
But we can't let that energy fade -- because in just 60 days, voters will decide who gets to serve in the White House for the next four years. So every single one of us has got to pull together to finish strong.
I know you feel the urgency: Already this week, supporters like you have made more than 500,000 grassroots donations to build this campaign. So if you're fired up, let's keep it going -- let's see how many people we can get to show their support by the end of the day.
Barack's got something that the other side doesn't: more than 3 million grassroots supporters like you -- and together we're going to win this election the right way.
The donation you give today will make a big impact in the final stage of this race. And on November 7th, you can wake knowing that you did everything you could to help us deliver on the full promise of the next four years.
Make this our biggest week yet, and give $5 or more right now to win this election in the final two months:
I've watched you take too many trips, Michelle - you burn up more jet fuel in one hour than I could buy with my pay in a year.
Maybe you'd want me to, oh, I don't know - ask all my friends to give donations to you instead of the gifts they'd be giving to others for things like birthdays, anniversaries, wedding and baby showers?
How about that cute little letter you sent out with the "Don't buy dinner out - send us the money" request? That was impressive... Not in a good way, but impressive.
Well, thanks for stopping by. The last 4 years have been a real trip. You've lived high on the hog on our credit card, promised you'd pay our bills, but you've bought a lot of presents for everyone but us on it - and I really look forward to seeing you out of the White House in a few months.
Oooh! Oooh! Mr. Cotter, call on me! Please call on me!
Remember that old saying? You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, my husband Barack is going to prove you can fool all of the Democrats all of the time. Remember that one? Just send me your paycheck and shut up!
