Dear Readers: In 2008, Obama’s campaign was touted to have a most talented fundraising team. Is that team now out drinking with Hillary Clinton?It seems that their new donation tactic is now the center of a Category 4 Twitter-Storm, with reports of heavy laughter and intense mocking.
Now, instead of using money to procure a wedding our shower give, you can give to OBAMA EVENTS REGISTRY. From Twitchy.com: Obama says ‘all your wedding gifts belong to me,’ sparks #Obamafundraisingideas.
I totally blame Team Obama for the lack of production at my profit-center today — I spent a lot of time tweeting:
As did a lot of other people, as it was a top trending topic:
SLOB KT Cat thinks the whole thing is TACKY. And, as Lonely Conservative notes: Talk about desperation.
I love the smell of desperation in June: It smells like Romney victory in November!
This is just a small sample of the hilarity to be found on #ObamaFundingIdeas. My personal favorite from IowaHawk: Breaking: President, film crew escorted from school bus after asking teenagers to taunt him #Obamafundraisingideas
This should be a sweet new entry for Beers with Demos series “What are we Tweeting About Today“.
Of course, other people are taking another approach to show the well-deserved contempt for this donation scheme:
There is even more hilarity to enjoy: Jon Stewart, who is not know for his deep respect for conservative views, unleashed his inner Libertarian and excoriated Team Obama for its “executive privilege” hypocrisy related to Fast and Furious. Click here for the videos — with a bonus reference to ancient Egypt. SLOB WC Varones also opines about this topic – MSM viewers finally learn about Fast and Furious
I wanted to take a few moments to direct the Shrine’s friends to the podcast of CANTO TALK – Ladies Night episode featuring “Fast and Furious” and California. I was delighted to make some new friends, including Jeannie DeAngelis (from Long Island, New York — another deep blue state maverick) who writes for American Thinker and Breitbart. Her recent piece is: How About an American DREAM Act? She also has a blog (Jeannie-ology) that I will add to the blogroll!
We were joined by Alice Linahan of Texas, the founder of Voices Empower. This organization works in the trenches of the Tea Party movement to break the reliance on the liberal media for news and information, and a link will now also be in the blogroll. Melanie Sturm, conservative columnist for the Aspen Times (talk about hazardous duty station) and economics/finance expert, completed the quartet of “Silvio’s Angels!”
I wanted to round out today with a little history news. First, Egyptological has a series of pictures of the famous Merenptah stela that was damaged by looters recently:
There is also an interesting new piece: The Mystery of Psusenes III, which is an essay about the potential nen-existence of a 22nd dynasty Pharaoh.
Word Warrior has finally updated his Deadliest Blogger site with: THE AGE OF ARTHUR: PART TWELVE — a must read for any history lover.
Captain Capitalism shares a little personal history of his own, involving the cologne Aramis, which got him to thinking: “What if you were to wear all the old colognes that were popular amongst men back in the 70’s and 80’s when the girls of today were little daddy’s daughters and were regularly exposed to the scent of that cologne? Would it remind them of dad and thus see you in a more manly and attractive fashion? Would it remind them of their youth, making them happier and thus more agreeable to your presence?”
Personally, my dad wore Old Spice. However, I was a sucker for any man who wore Calvin Klein’s “Obsession for Men”. Bought Horemheb a nice big botte for our first Christmas together. 🙂
NOW FOR THE REALLY BIG NEWS!!! The Young Prince is now a blogger. He has is own site — Young Prince’s Castle. I told him to write his passion…so, naturally, the first entry is about video games. Check it out and leave a kind reply. Bloggers get lonely without comments and traffic.
