Ann --Oh, hell. Chance to join Barack... Key word: chance. Send money and you're entered in a raffle for an invitation. It's all a big crap shoot. Remember when the key word for Obama was: hope. And: change. They changed one letter in "change" and now it's: chance.
Barack and I know how hard so many of you are working on this campaign -- and we're grateful for it.
But sometimes you just need to have a little fun, too.
That's why I hope you'll take us up on the chance to join Barack at George Clooney's house on May 10th for what will be a pretty amazing event.
Chip in with a grassroots donation today, and you'll be automatically entered to join them:
Thanks for all you do,
Come on, baby, won't you take a chance...
There's another key word in that email. It's: you. In this sentence: "But sometimes you just need to have a little fun, too." Sometimes you just need to have a little fun, too. You, lowly peon, in addition to... me and my glamorous husband and my gorgeous Hollywood friend. You may need, but you're only going to get it, if you win the crap shoot, which you've got to be in to win, so give us money, because that's what we need. We have plenty of fun, and we want to have more, but we need what you have: money. Or to put that in email-friendly form: a grassroots donation.
What's grassroots about making a donation in response to the First Lady of the United States luring you to a movie star's party?
