I wonder if the women who work in the Whitehouse got this?

Mark O said...

Doesn't the guy always have to buy dinner first?

Methadras said...

You voted for the absurd, Ann. And I suspect you will do it again. Why? Because you are a woman.

exhelodrvr1 said...

And calm!!

Obama is an embarrassing leader to have. He lacks the dignity of that Mccain RINO. No sarcasm intended.

When all is said and done, we really would be a lot better off, with hundreds of Mexicans not murdered I might add, had Mccain won.

exhelodrvr1 said...

mark O,
"Doesn't the guy always have to buy dinner first?"

No - according to recent polls the "price" of sex is going down. (Both puns intended.)

DADvocate said...

Ann-

You and I don't have a lot of chances at dinner either. I missed the get together at Arthur's a couple of years ago.

Just as well though. I eat like a slob and my manners are hideous.

MayBee said...

Did you get the email from Michelle that Ace posted? It's hilarious.

" Not everyone knows how to prepare for a dinner like this. As someone who's eaten countless meals with my husband, I want to tell you the one thing to do if you're selected to join him...

Just relax. Barack wants this dinner to be fun, and he really loves getting to know supporters like you."

Hoosier Daddy said...

Isn't that kind of insulting in a way? I mean that you, a law professor, ever had a shot at dinner with the President yet his robo messages want you to think you have some special connection to him.

It's like celebrity autographs that start with: To my good and dear friend...

Triangle Man said...

Abzurd!

Paul Zrimsek said...

Consider yourself lucky that he's still willing to have dinner with you. Remember how annoyed he got last time at the way you kept snapping pictures of the other diners and the things on the table?

Strelnikov said...

After the way you rebuffed his advances after your last dinner, for which he paid in full, I might remind you, I'm surprised he's still interested. Maybe he is serious, after all.

prairie wind said...

Does he have anyone professional on his staff? Malia and Sasha must be in charge of this effort.

Imagination is the substance sold by the snake oil huckster.

Pay your money and try it out.

If it doesn't work, then it shows a failure in your imagination.

madAsHell said...

This must be the BO's psycho-sexual persona you were talking about yesterday. I think you mentioned something to the effect of.......he didn't work through women.....but he won the election with a mantra of "Hope and Change"

A man's man has more to offer than "Hope and Change".

chickenlittle said...

You should accept his invitation, video the encounter, and call it "My Dinner With Barack"

AllenS said...

Dear Professor Althouse,

Because you and I don't have a lot of chances to have dinner together, I need you to send me some money. Thanks.

Your friend,
AllenS

murgatroyd666 said...

That's it, Althouse -- try to conceal your insidious racism with feeble excuses. It won't work. We know why you're really rejecting the advances of a President of Color.

Fred4Pres said...

And people say he has a problem with women!

He's The Ladies Man!

John said...

I'd report him as a cyberstalker.

It is really just a ploy to harvest email addresses. I wish I could get people to pay me $3 to give me their addresses so I could spam them.

If at first you dont succeed..

MayBee said...

How long until they raffle off a Target shopping spree with Michelle?

It is reale:ly just a ploy to harvest email addresses. I wish I could get people to pay me $3 to give me their addresses so I could spam them.

It might also be a money laundering scheme, to give him the names of "donors" for his 2012 campaign.

NYTNewYorker said...

Yea but you sent in your 3 bucks anyway.

...cause you never know.

edutcher said...

I think he's stalking you.

If Meade had tried that, you'd be taking walks in the woods with your dog.

Looks like a couple of characters jumped down a line or two in my last comment. Weird ...

Trooper York said...

Jeeez you can't go to dinner with him.

You would give Spencer Tracy a heart attack.

Lem said...

Obama, the globetrotting boyfriend, comes back asking the professor to dinner.. Will she take him back after this.. how can I put this.. overperformance?

A salvific dinner!

"Did you get the email from Michelle that Ace posted?"

Yes. But it didn't amuse me. I hate when my boyfriend's wife intrudes!

Lem said...

Tip to Obama the boyfriend..

Have Dinner with Andre first.

Lem said...

Another tip to Obama the boyfriend..

In a word Presentation

A list of donts.

1. Wine served in non-wine glasses...

2. Cold bread in a brown paper sack...

3. Drinks served in mason jars...

4. Dishes served on wooden boards...

AllenS said...

Dear Professor Althouse,

So, what should I put you down for? A Happy Meal?

Yours always,

Barack obama

Ann Althouse said...

"Yea but you sent in your 3 bucks anyway."

Here is a complete list of politicians I've given money to in my entire life:

1. Russ Feingold, when he first ran for office, after he personally called me several times and it became harder to put him off than to pay.

2. Russ Feingold on maybe one other occasion, plus Russ Feingold's then-brother-in-law, again because Russ asked.

3. EMILY's LIst, long ago, a couple times. I think I helped fund Carol Moseley-Braun's first run for Congress.

4. The wife of a colleague, who was running for a local office.

That's it. And nothing is within that last 10 years. I learned to resist.

Lem said...

So, what should I put you down for? A Happy Meal?

You had me at Onion Rings ;)

Tank said...

Well, here's rule 8:

8. Promotion Rules. Fifty (50) potential winners will be selected by a random drawing from all eligible entries to be held at Obama for America Headquarters on October 7, 2011. Sponsor may, at its option, conduct a background check on each potential winner. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any potential winner from receiving any prize based on such background check if Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion that awarding any prize to such potential winner could result in a safety or security risk to any person or persons or could result in the disruption of any event associated with the Promotion. Sponsor will, in its sole discretion, then select four (4) winners from the list of eligible potential winners on the basis of criteria determined and applied by Sponsor to provide for an appropriate range of views, backgrounds, and interests among the winners selected. Winners will be notified by phone or e-mail by October 14, 2011. To claim the prize, each winner should follow the instructions and comply with the conditions contained in his/her notification.

I'm pretty sure that baby is going to disqualify many here. But not garage, Cookie, J, Jeremy or HD. Maybe we could send one of them as a non-representative for the blog.

Hmm, maybe they don't want to subject themselves to that background check. Plus, they are pretty disruptive.

Hoosier Daddy said...

".. I think I helped fund Carol Moseley-Braun's first run for Congress..."

Jesus...you sure can pick em.

Amy said...

This gave me my laugh (out loud) for the day. How many more ways can our president embarrass himself (and by extension, our country)?

ic said...

Creepy!

Ann, you are stalked.

Christopher in MA said...

Money to Feingold, Carol Mostly-Fraud and your vote to the SCOAMF?

Hoosier, you took the words out of my mouth.

Carol_Herman said...

Poor guy!

Reagan, too.

Every single day of a politician's life is DIALING FOR DOLLARS.

Here?

Well, Obama WANTS the publicity that he's having a tough time. It keeps the public tuned in.

I'd worry if he was makig major trips to the saud's. (He's not because the saud's are pissed off. And, trying to get a chunk of Libya in the bargain.)

The Libya outcome will shaft us all. (It started as a french adventure.)

Carol_Herman said...

Nope. I used to collect buttons.

I'll BUY a button that for 2012 that says: Funny Underwear Man and the Pizza Guy

traditionalguy said...

The Professor is wise.

Once you write out a Maximum joint donation for a bundler friend to deliver, you will need a larger mailbox, for life.

Every Democrat in the USA will mail solicitations for donations implying that you owe them something for standing up to the Rich guys with the Private Jets.

Meade said...

Email To: Barack Obama, From: Meade, subject line: "Tips for having any chance at all of getting Ann Althouse to at last say yes to a dinner date with you."

Ann Althouse said...

@Meade Yeah, if he's not wearing pants...

Levi Starks said...

I found it interesting as I read MY personal invitation to contribute, and win a chance to have dinner with the president, that at the end there was a long disclaimer which clarified that there is in fact no purchase required to win, and that donating will not improve my odds.
I didn't remember seeing that on any of the previous requests I've received during the last week.

Christopher in MA said...

But wait, there's more! Send money in the next fifteen minutes and YOU can help Barack finish his waffle!

Hoosier Daddy said...

Professor, what's worse for a guy to wear, shorts or mom pants?

edutcher said...

Ann Althouse said...

@Meade Yeah, if he's not wearing pants...

There's a visual.

BJM said...

Look out now!

Levi Starks said...

News flash, this just in from Biden.


Friend --

A thought on this deadline tonight ...

As you decide whether to donate this quarter, I ask you to consider this fact: You're not the only one depending on Barack and me.

Millions of folks across the country are counting on us to stay and finish what we've started.

They're counting on those of us who can afford to do something to help.

Can you pitch in today?

LarryK said...

I really can't imagine any other President in American history who would sign off on this - not even Clinton (because of his history, his advisors would be very sensitive to the downside).

Will SNL or Jon Stewart do a skit on this? It's shark-jumping material.

Kim Priestap said...

I got the same email and reacted negatively to that opening clause as well. I thought it was smarmy.

Freeman Hunt said...

He's right. He and I don't have many chances to have dinner together.

I'll be at the White House at six.

Freeman Hunt said...

Why do all the lines Althouse has posted from these Obama emails make it sound like Obama is trying to date the recipient?

prairie wind said...

Freeman...like I said before. It's because Malia and Sasha think it's cute.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

Sorry, Barack. Thanks to you I don't have the three bucks.

AllenS said...

Dear Professor Althouse,

You know, if Michelle happens to go on another vacation, how about a movie together?

Thinking of you,
B.O.

Tank said...

Just got an EMail from Ron Paul.

He did not ask me out to dinner.

cubanbob said...

Ann isn't Barry such a classy guy and all? Inviting you for a dinner date at Mickey D's and then having you pick up your half of the check. Whatta a guy! Is Meade a little bit jealous of having being asked out for dinner?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Michael said...

I am not sure I would accept an invitation from an American president who ordered the killing of an American citizen on foreign soil without judicial backup. Rule of law liberal!!

Vegetable House said...

Weird . . . I got the same email! I'd call him a two-timer but there have to be millions of us.

Big Mike said...

Take my advice, Professor, and stay home with Meade.

PatCA said...

He's just pathetic now. Eeuw.

bagoh20 said...

"I am not sure I would accept an invitation from an American president who ordered the killing of an American citizen on foreign soil without judicial backup."

That's why he sent him the Predators. He turned down an offer you can't refuse. A simple donation could have saved that dude. Jihadi's are stuck on stupid.

Right now a Predator is circling over Madison,and frankly anything they hit is probably worth it. I'd aim for the grass around the capital building - can't miss.

Few recent indie bands have worked music fans and commentators alike into the sort of love-hate lather that Ontario’s gothic rave duo Crystal Castles did in 2008. First, Ethan Kath and Alice Glass conjured up a rare kind of parent- and old critic-baiting pop sound by refracting the most full-on, euphoric and comic elements from trance, rave and electro through the snot-flecked lens of their childhood punk rock.
