RUSH: A fundraising e-mail from Michelle Obama. Dear Biff…
I know your life is full — with work, or school, or family — and yet you still find the time to help out when you can.
You may have a tight budget, but you give what you can afford.
A woman recently told the campaign her family skipped a pizza dinner at their favorite place so that they could make a difference in this election.
That is the commitment that drives this campaign.
If you can support Barack with a donation today, please know it makes a huge difference. If we win, it will be because of what you did at moments like this….
P.S. — It meant a lot to me to speak with you and everyone else last night [at the convention]. Thank you for everything you do.
So Michelle Obama sends out a fundraising letter saying, you know what, a family that really cares, unlike you, a family that really, really cared skipped a pizza dinner at their favorite place so that they could make a difference in this election. Of course everybody knows that means, rather than eat dinner that night, they sent that money to the campaign. And here’s Michelle Obama asking you to do the same. This woman will do anything to make people give up pizza. He-he-he-he-he.
