I’m trying to imagine a scenario in which I’d be able to sit around a table with Anna Wintour, Barack and “Mee-shell” Obama, and Sarah Jessica Parker and yet still have any kind of appetite for a meal:

Translation: “Normally I have security quickly remove proletariat trash like you who wander too close to my Park Avenue den of elitism, but I’m willing to tolerate a couple of peasants for one hour only as my personal sacrifice in order to help Barack Obama finish the job of stuffing the rest of the US economy into the back of Jack Kevorkian’s old van. Don’t miss out, rubes!”

    It’s not Zero’s fault, SJP just wasn’t bringing them in. Let’s try an additional hook.

    Try putting a couple of doc worker’s union leaders at the table.

    Maybe next month they could try to raffle off tickets for a "Pow Wow Chow Down" with Lizzie Warren. Or they could take a different approach and sell tickets to prevent having to have lunch with Debbie Whatshername-Ditz.

    Was that the worst filmed commercial ever? Too many cut shots. I think the best part of it was when they were typing in the web address.

    Maybe next time they'll have a woman reading the script.

    What`s second prize, two meals ?

    “SJ and I both have our own reasons for supporting Zero.”

    While mine is most decidedly not politics, I’m not even sure I could spell it without help from that adorable little six-year-old; I did receive an un-godly amount of capital from the U.S. Treasury, funneled through those un-capitalist, to extend you this invitation.

    It’s like, you know, dear, a mondo tax refund for the last two decades. I’m so excited I can hardly catch my breath.

    They had to edit so much because she kept looking off camera to read the cards.

    One could only see how excited she was to be doing this for her Zero while wearing that oh-so-Vogue scarf.

    That was second prize.

    First is having a nice dinner without any of them, and an Obama T-Shirt you can wash your car with.

    I think if she was really with it, she'd get a tramp stamp of the Obama logo.

    That's what the cool kids are doing this year. That way, the rest of us can know they approved of the generational theft they are passing on to their grandkids.

    I bet she's still a little miffed about having to follow laws. She, at one point, complained about retailers 'bargains' interfering with maximum profits. She suggested that now that she has "friends in the White House" they could embark on some price-fixing legislation. Alas, her high-minded ideals were shot down by the reply that her suggestion was,in fact, illegal.

    Legal/illegal… just do it, darling…

    Being an FotO has its perks.

    Ole Jimbo would love to win this one and sit around yapping all night about the finer points of Catholicism and contraception, my NRA membership, homeschooling, the pro-life movement, and how to make some good chicken fried steak, which I would bring with me, because they would only serve kale shards and broth-vapors to those skinny harpies. It would be a damn fine time. For me.

  13. jeffythequick on June 3rd, 2012 7:21 pm

    Can I get some Arugula and a 17 oz Coke with the chicken fried steak?

  14. SignPainterGuy on June 3rd, 2012 7:48 pm

    And peas ! Don`t forget the peas !

  15. ChapBix on June 3rd, 2012 8:52 pm

    You can turn off the lights, Anna W. I won't be coming any time soon.

  16. jeffythequick on June 3rd, 2012 11:35 pm

    Ah, the pleas for more peas, please.
