Obama Campaign’s Email Harvest Stretches Out to Include Republicans

If you’re a Republican/conservative and have any liberal acquaintances (I have a couple — you never know when you’re going to need a tie-dyed t-shirt or advice about Tofu), you might want to tell them you’ll never talk about Fahrenheit 911 with them again if they give your contact information to the Obama campaign.

From Team Obama’s website by way of White House Dossier:

Who inspires you to give?

This holiday season, we’re giving you a chance to have a little fun at the expense of a Republican in your life by letting them know they inspired you to make a donation to the Obama campaign.

Simply enter their name and email address below. Then, we’ll send them a message letting them know they inspired you to donate.

Thank you for supporting this campaign, and happy holidays.

Important: By making a donation today, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to have dinner with Barack and Michelle Obama. By clicking on the “Submit” button below or otherwise participating in the promotion, you agree to be bound by these Official Rules and represent that you satisfy all of the eligibility requirements.

If you want to have a little fun back at them, try something like this:


You can also use the names of others who inspired your Obama donation, such as Saul Alinsky, Bill Ayers or Uncle Omar.

It’ll cost you a buck, but it’ll be worth it — plus you might win dinner with Obama, which would make for some fun conversation while watching FLOTUS horde all the french fries.

Update: The White House says anybody who thinks they’re storing the email addresses they get from this needs to take off their tinfoil hat. Yeah, people are so silly if they think this administration would actually do something intrusive.
