    “Walk Down the Aisle with Barack” contest

    “Walk Down the Aisle with Barack” contest

    The sickest thing about it is that when you read the headline, it didn’t surprise you in the least.  Such is the state of the Obama campaign.

    With everyone talking about the bizarre Obama Event Registry, wherein people are asked to have wedding guests donate to Obama in lieu of the betrothed couple, anything is possible.

    Brides who give up their wedding gifts to Obama will be entered in a contest to win a special Barack Bouquet so that Barack can walk you down the aisle.  (No, not really, but allow your imagination to roam in the age of Obama.)

    He wants to be with you the whole way, because he cares that much.

    Reader Patricia produced this announcement:

    [Note:  I thought it was clear from the text of the post that this was just a parody.  From some of the comments I’m wondering whether this was clear enough.  Just a parody.  Just a parody.]


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    This must be for the Obama’s retirement home on the Malvinas.

    The Secret Service rounded up all the knives and forks from a luncheon Friday of NALEO before the President appeared.

    “It’s very important that you use your utensils as soon as possible,” National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials board member Raquel Regalado told about 1000 delegates at the group’s annual conference.

    I guess this means that they won’t need any silverware (except for spoons) .. a potato peeler sounds nice.

    Just a parody until the Obama campaign sees it and lifts it.

    It might be fun to print that out and put it up on a few school bulletin boards…

    Just for scientific research, of course.

    Many people are missing the point. The Obama campaign wants your email address and other information for their database. Come November in crucial swing states, they’re going to be sending out micro-targeted messages based on gender, age, ethnicity to get out the vote. So while we’re laughing now, let’s hope Obama doesn’t have the last.

    Sort of a reminder..yet again of the Carnival Barker sort of President we have.
    And although probably not intended, this silliness becomes a metaphor for how Obama views things.
    “Government” can and will find better ways to spend your money. Forget the economic impact of spending for gifts that help small and large business alike. My needs are more important. Its more important that my campaign money is spread around my close associates than your trite gifts to others. Dear Leader says so.
