Another fund raising idea

I am not making this up. I went looking for images to fake up an Obama-themed wedding invitation and stumbled on a party site that had designed a bunch of Obama inauguration party supplies back in 2009.

I SWEAR … these are unadulterated screenshots. Can you believe the ingredients list? And that Obama buck signed by Keith Olbermann. ::snort:: It’s almost like the people who designed these were torn between mocking Obama-philes and wanting to sell crap to them.

I mean … it’s a real party supplies site. The stuff is actually for sale. But come on … “We’re going through the Change with Obama.” Seriously? Yes, We Can Celebrate Menopause With Barack! ROFLLL

Wouldn’t the candy bars be a great fund raising idea for all those Obama Fan Clubs out there?! If you buy 501 or more bars at a time, they’re only $1.35 each. I’m sure people would SNAP them up for $2.00 or more. Then you could send all that great profit to help Barack and Michelle stay in the White House for four more years. This would, of course, require you to to engage in free enterprise via capital investment and profiteering. And there are all the FDA, EPA, IRS and other alphabet regulators to satisfy. But hey … it’s for Barack!

H/t to Bob who is absolutely right. I’m being satirical about the chocolate bars, but I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if the idea shows up on Obama’s campaign web site in a week or two.  http://bluebirdofbitterness.wordpress.com/2012/06/23/all-your-gifts-are-belong-to-us/

    Attention, Young Lovers!

    The Dear Leader Requires Sacrifice! If you are about to be married, do not selfishly ask for gifts so that you can start your puny, unimportant lives together.

    Instead, the Dear Leader is asking you to forego wedding gifts and ask your guests to donate to the Dear Leader.

    Everything in the Campaign, nothing outside the Campaign, nothing against the Campaign. For from Obama, and through him and to him are all things.

    Be subject to one another out of reverence for Obama. 22* Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the President. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Obama is the head of the country, his body, and is himself its Savior. 24 As the country is subject to Obama, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands. 25 Husbands, love your wives, as Obama loved the country and bummed money off her, 26 that he might exploit her, having fleeced her by the cadging of dough from wedding guests, 27 that he might present the country to himself in poverty, without nickel or dime or any such thing, that she might be dependent and without resources. 28 Even so husbands should love their wives as their own donor base. He who sponges off his wife loves himself. 29 For no man ever hates his own donor base, but squeezes and exploits it, as Obama does the party faithful, 30 because they are suckers. 31* “For this reason a dollar shall leave its wallet and it owner and be joined to the Obama campaign, and the two shall become one flash ad.” 32 This mystery is a profound one, and I am saying that it refers to Obama and the country; 33 however, let each one of you love his wife as a pigeon, and let the wife see that she dedicates her wedding day to the President.

    What red-blooded American girl doesn’t dream of turning her wedding day into a fundraising tool for an Epic Narcissist?
    Think of it as a sort of financial ius primae noctis.

    I am not making this up. Right during the 2008 election and just afterwards there was a black lady who took care of my mother-in-law. It may surprise you to learn that she was so excited over Barack Obama that she let all good sense and decorum fly out the window whenever she thought of him. Other than this unfortunate tendency she was a lovely person, so you can imagine my surprise when she proudly presented my (at the time) 20 year old daughter and me with Barack Obama condoms. Yes, there was his photo on the wrapper. Don’t ask me what the inside of the package was like because I refused to even touch them.
