I just received this email from the Obama campaign:
You must order your limited edition Obama fleece scarf before midnight tonight for it to reach you or a loved one before December 25th.
We encourage you to act quickly as supplies are likely to run out today.
Your Obama scarf will be a statement of your ongoing support for change — and it will help the Democratic National Committee retire the considerable debt it took on during the push for victory.
Make a donation of $25 or more before midnight tonight and get a limited edition Obama scarf for yourself or a loved one.
Get your Obama scarf
In the weeks and months ahead, it’s going to take all of us working together to bring change. Show your support by giving the gift of change this holiday season.
Thank you for everything you’ve done to build this movement.
Obama for America
Obama raised more than any other presidential candidate in the history of the United States, more than George W. Bush and John Kerry spent in 2004 combined. I did receive an email a few months ago from the campaign asking for a donation to help Hillary pay off the debt she incurred trashing Obama. So what exactly is the money for this time? And I don’t mean the scarf. I thought the campaign was over, we won didn’t we? So why the campaign emails?
Look, I supported Obama and continue to give him my support (as long as change.gov still has my resume in its database). Obama has the potential for being a truly transformational president, but it’s way past the time for the campaign to close shop. The emails were once cool, now they are spam.
