It Takes Won to know One: we take our Wonsies on the Road

It’s official: Lady M is going to serve as the public face of Team Obama’s our new grass-roots mobilizing effort “It Takes One.”

Maybe I’m reading too much into this urgent plea, butt it sounds to me like Lady M is suggesting that young couples - in addition to having their friends and family donate their wedding present to Team Obama – 


now spend their honeymoon soliciting votes for Big Guy too: 

Anxious to get started, prior to the impending Virginia crusade, Michelle taped and released an inspirational "It Takes One" video message.  Hoping to goad Obama supporters into action, Mrs. Obama opened the video reminiscing about her husband's first campaign for the Illinois legislature when, as mere newlyweds, Shelley and Barry "would take friends along" on romantic outings, where they would all "collect petition signatures to get Obama on the ballot."

I’m not so sure that will work as well for typical newlyweds as it did BO and MO. After all, not everyone is cut out to sacrifice the way the Wons have.

This new emphasis on the individual is an interesting twist in our campaign philosophy which, up till now, was more like Hillary’s “It takes a Village”storybook. And frankly it seems a bit counter-productive given Big Guy’s recent position that “you didn’t do that yourself.” Butt who am I to question our big brained campaign staff?

Not exactly inspired signage, if you ask me. It reminds me way too much of those slippery floor warning signs:

MO is just asking that everyone recruit one new volunteer, or one new voter to vote for BO in November:

“That one conversation you have, that one new volunteer you recruit, that could be the difference between waking up on Nov. 7 and feeling the promise of four more years or asking yourself, ‘Could I have done more?’”

That’s definitely a thought worth reflecting on.

Anyway, I guess this is just an extension of some of our previous “onesies” campaigns:

Butt since were talking about the WONsies, I should mention that there’s been another disturbing security leak: someone leaked information on Lady M’s up-till-now super-secret onesie containment system:

Life, time and gravity change your body...sometimes no matter how much you exercise or watch what you eat, it's hard to reverse the effects. Playtex have come up with the perfect solution to body blips with their new generation of active shapewear, which immediately shapes the figure and creates a visible reduction around the thighs, hips and waist.

It’s a miracle, for sure:

And they work great. When applied correctly.

The worst part of this latest, huge security leak is that I’m afraid it means we’ve lost all moral authority with respect to the temple underwear controversy.

And now that August is right around the corner; you know - the month when everyone in Washington gets all wee-weed up -


I’m just going to go out on a limb and predict that we’re going to have to change our WONsies. Soon.


Now let’s get out there and win WON for the Gipper!

Butt there’s no point wandering around the forest, or beating around the “Bush” – let’s just get right to the point:
