He emailed me begging for money.
Joe got my email address from the brown-short website Attack Watch. I signed up for the site to see what would happen. Within a week I got emails from no-name democrats, Moochelle Obama and Joe Biden.
Here is Joe’s note:
I need to ask you one last thing before tonight’s midnight deadline:
If you know you’re going to donate to this campaign eventually, what’s stopping you from doing it right now?
If you’re going to be a part of history in 2012, it’s time to get off the sidelines.
So, before midnight, will you chip in what you can and say you’re in?
This has never been about Barack and me.
We’re just two guys. It’s folks like you out there who will decide this election.
And what you’re capable of is incredible — if you decide to do it.
P.S. — That deadline also applies to the dinner Barack is having with four supporters. Donate today and you’ll be automatically entered for the chance to be there.
Joe doesn’t say what the midnight deadline is. It was Thursday night. Perhaps a reporting deadline? Who knows. Who cares.
My feeling is…how lame. There is no background, only feigned urgency, no emotion, and silly references to “Barack.”
Either Team Obama hired some completely inept marketing people, or Joe actually wrote this himself.
Bottom line? If this is the best BO can do, it’s like he has given up already.
Oh, and my reference to Uncle Joe? Well, It’s perfect. The real Uncle Joe was the ultimate commie. How many did he kill with his lefty vision? 20 Million? I’m not sure of the exact number. But Joe Biden’s stupid attempts to be genial in his begging emails, and his buddying up with the commies, I figured Uncle Joe was a fitting moniker for Joe “Plugs” Biden.
