The Obama campaign is not where it wants to be. It needs more money. It’s been asking for $3 for those who want a chance to meet the president. Forget that. Now it wants $5.
President Obama today sent an email out to supporters raffling himself off – normal asking price $3 – but throwing in Michael Jordan as well.
So that will be an extra $2 please. I mean, this is Michael Jordan.
I thought $3 had been scientifically deduced by Obamaland technicians as the perfect price level at which people will throw away their money. The Romney campaign has been raffling their candidate off for more. Maybe they had it right.
From the president’s email:
When Michael Jordan wrote a check to my campaign for U.S. Senate in 2004, I wasn’t sure whether I should cash it or frame it.
Now Michael Jordan is taking his support to the next level. If you chip in $5 or whatever you can today, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to meet both of us at an event later this month in New York City.
You’re invited to bring a guest — so if basketball isn’t your game, I encourage you to bring someone in your life who might enjoy meeting Michael and me over dinner, and maybe even shooting some hoops with some of the other basketball stars, past and present.
Now, I don’t know if I’ll want to sprint up and down the court that night, but I’m always up to launch a few jump shots. If you join me, don’t be surprised if I challenge you or your guest to play.
I don’t understand. If he’s not going to run, what are they going to play, Horse? Around the World?
So here’s your chance to play Horse with Michael Jackson. Are you in?
