My message to George Clooney and President Obama
I received an email today stating that if I donate $3 to the Obama campaign, I will win a chance to attend a fundraiser in Los Angeles with Mr. Obama and actor George Clooney. Below the email is my response.
Mark your calendar: On May 10th, George Clooney is hosting an event at his home in Los Angeles to support President Obama.
If you donate $3 or whatever you can today, you’ll be automatically entered to be there, too.
We’ll take care of airfare and accommodations — all you need to do is think about who you’d ask to join you for an evening with President Obama and George Clooney.
When you pitch in, you’ll also help build this grassroots organization at a crucial moment in the campaign.
So donate $3 or whatever you can today:

While I appreciate the invitation, I will have to decline. You see, I already live in Los Angeles, and airfare would be a bigger waste than your GSA. I am probably within walking distance of the event, but getting there would be impossible because the entire city will be shut down due to these two egomaniacs tying up traffic.
Also, based on President Obama’s job performance, $3 is too high an entry fee in this economy that he has personally kept from recovering.
While I appreciate your campaign stalking me on Twitter and Facebook, I have less interest in you than you have in me.
I appreciate the campaign finally giving me a heads up regarding President Obama’s itinerary so that I can make sure to be out of town that day.
I am sure you will have a great time at your event as the uber-wealthy bash the wealthy and issue faux praise for the downtrodden you all secretly hold in utter contempt.
When Governor Mitt Romney becomes President, feel free to invite me to any events you may be holding with the new Republican administration. If those events are in Los Angeles during rush hour and contain Hollywood celebrities like Mr. Clooney, I will have to decline those in advance.

Editor’s note: I received an automated email response from the Obama campaign:
“Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE”
Yep, that pretty much sums up the Obama presidency. For once, they speak the truth.
