Hey Tatler Readers:
For some Saturday fun, here is the daily email from Team Obama with some teeny-tiny edits.
Louise – (my alias)
I want to thank you for all you’re doing (to undermine) this campaign.
If we get to (dis)-continue this work, it’s going to be because of you.
Next week I’m meeting up with President Clinton on the campaign trail, and we both want to (spank-you) in person.
This Sunday is the biggest fundraising deadline of this campaign so far.
(Besides all the other “biggest fundraising deadlines” I receive emails about on a daily basis.)
There’s no billionaire donor or lobbyist waiting around to write a $10 million check. (Just half of Hollywood and George Soros with his $1.5 million donation to Obama groups.)
How you respond right now determines if we move into the final stretch of this election with the resources we need, ready to close this out, or if we’re struggling (STRUGGLING? SERIOUSLY?) to keep up with the other side.
And that’s the way it’s been from the beginning. (Oh the struggle!)
If we had listened to the pundits and the critics and the powers that be inside Washington whenever they tried to stand in our way, (Team Clinton?) we would have given up a long time ago. (Given up? Given up? What are these people smoking?)
You’ve played a valuable role (sabotaging) this campaign forward — now, I hope you’ll help make sure we finish September stronger (in debt) than we’ve ever been. Donate $5 or whatever you can (steal from some rich Republican) today.
P.S. — If there’s one person who knows (about being hard) in these final weeks, it’s President Clinton. I’m grateful he’ll be (joined with the cheerleaders, interns, etc) and me on the trail. You should be there, too.
