At this point, anyone covering this year’s Presidential election has been bombarded with emails from POTUS asking for donations. Sure, he’s gotten creative with contests, birthday parties and the possibility of meeting celebrities. But c’mon, he wants your money.
The campaign took it to a whole new level on Monday when COO for Obama for America Ann Marie Habershaw sent out an email with the subject line, “Surprise.” We love surprises! What could this be? Sadly, it was nothing exciting. It was the campaign just begging for cash. She owns up to it right off the bat, saying, “Yep, me again. Surprise: I’m here to ask you for money.” Wow, we’re just a booty call now. The pressure is kept on, saying, “It might sound crass, but ramping up our ground game to the level it needs to be across the country takes cash — a whole lot of it.”
Well, thanks for taking all the romance out of this thing. What do we look like, whores? Tease us a little bit before jumping right to the business side of things.
