Bu-rock’s Excellent Dinner Invitation

You remember Smooty, right? The brilliant fund raiser who replaced our DDDD (Dearly Departed Diva, Desi) as Big White Social Secretary? She was only here a short while before being called for a higher purpose – Deputy Director of WTF: Obama’s 2012  re-election campaign.

Well, she’s already proven herself invaluable to the WTF effort. Here’s her most recent brainchild:


Friend --
I've worked for President Obama for almost five years -- but I've never actually sat down for dinner with him.

That's why I'm excited about (and maybe a little jealous of) the opportunity you have to join the President for dinner. He's going to sit down and swap stories over a meal with four supporters, and you could be one of them.

You should really give this a shot. Please donate $20 or more today to be automatically entered for the chance to sit down for dinner with the President:

Dinner with the President?

This isn't going to be a formal affair or a banquet for hundreds of guests.

It's just you, three other supporters, and President Obama, sitting down together for an evening among friends.

It's not often you get to talk to the President one on one about your hopes for the country and your ideas for this campaign. So I hope you'll put your name in the running.

Please donate $20 or more today, and you'll be automatically entered for the chance to claim your seat the table:

Good luck,


Julianna Smoot
Deputy Campaign Manager
Obama for America

I, myself, was invited to buy a raffle ticket! For only $20 (or whatever I care to donate) my name goes right into the old raffle basket.

Is this not pure genius! Just like a school/church raffle! Genius!

Big Guy himself sent out the first email invitation to get into the lottery, which looks pretty much like Smooty’s except he was only charging $5.

I suppose with the new Gallup poll showing Big Guy could actually lose to any generic Republican (!), combined with the fear of creeping inflation, Smooty had to up the ante to $20. Still, it’s for dinner! With Big Guy!

No word yet on the menu, I sure hope it doesn’t have to be approved by Lady M first. I know it’s only a $5/20 donation, butt still, I think most people having dinner with Big Guy will be expecting something a bit more than this:


Something more like this:


Cristal and beluga

kobe filet with fois gras

Kobe filet with fois gras



 Whole cold water lobster





Or what we just  call “Sunday night supper” around here.
