Signs Your Campaign Is Healthy Probably Do Not Include The Need To Pimp George Clooney For 12 Quarters

Yesterday, I received this email in my inbox, as a result of he whole, “attack watch,” thing, which thankfully landed me on the Obama Campaign’s distribution lists. It seems as though the win a date with Barack and Joe has been marked back up to $3 from $2. That is because they have improved on the quality of the entire experience. That’s right my friends, we can now add the name of George Clooney to the dream date experience. I believe as a starting point for this discussion I should begin with some personal disclosure. One, I am not a fan of George Clooney on a personal level, although I have enjoyed some of the movies that he’s been in. Two, this has to be the single lowest rent fundraising scheme ever performed by any politician in the admittedly sordid world of political fundraising. More to follow after you read this gem, found in my inbox.

Obama - Biden
Friend –

I have some advice for the two people who will be selected to go to a party for the President at George Clooney’s house:

Choose your guest wisely.

Whoever you pick to join you is going to owe you big time.

Think about it — and chip in $3 or whatever you can today to be automatically entered:

https://donate.barackobama.com/Obama-Clooney-and-You

- Ann Marie

Ann Marie Habershaw
Chief Operating Officer
Obama for America

P.S. — Regarding your airfare and hotel, we’ve got it covered. Just get your name in the mix today. 

The good news for the Obama minions is that by pimping out Clooney’s name and house for this get together, we’ve moved the price tag from 8 quarters to 12. This moves us barely, from the territory of donating what’s often obtainable by searching couch cushions or the floorboards of a car into a definite, I have to think about making certain I have this in my checking account before I use my debit card to purchase this raffle ticket territory. The bad news of course is a little more expandable than the one sentence above. First off, I do not ever remember any national political figure debasing his campaign or for that matter his office in quite so seedy a manner. Buy a raffle ticket for a dream date is at the very best, degrading to the office of the Presidency. Yes it is true that President Clinton pimped out the Lincoln Bedroom and turned our Chief Executive’s residence into a bed and breakfast, but he at least got a solid $100 Thousand for the experience. It was a tacky move, but at least it was a very expensive tacky move. People on the left are always admonishing those of us on the right to show respect for the office of the Presidency even though we disagree politically with the current holder of that office. This is that perfect example of how the person who holds that office should be the example of paying that respect and not lesson number one of what not to do. Why not go the whole way Barry? Why not just kick the price up to 5 bones and include Carrot Top and the entire cast from those, “Girls Gone Wild,” videos?

I realize that fundraising is a part of the campaigning process that is unavoidable. The amount of money raised during a campaign is usually in correlation to what level of popular support a candidate actually has. Money is necessary to tell people what you stand for and why they should vote for you and not the other guy. For all of the whining about campaign funds that people do, they only whine about the money that the candidates that oppose their favorite receive, and not the money raised by those that they support. The Democrats whine about corporations while accepting gazillions from the unions. I have always thought the entire campaign finance fight was a complete waste of time, effort, and hypocritical besides. It is also a breech of our First Amendment Rights. When ever a politician rails on about getting money out of politics, what they mean is that they wish to stop the funding the other side is able to tap into, while keeping their own spigots on full. That being said, the win a dream date with Barack contest smacks of desperation. This is hardly the methodology he used for his first White House bid, and does not speak to a man who will reach his $1 Billion goal. The reports of some of the seedier things he’s doing aside, (not verifying the authenticity of credit card donors for one, the foreign flow of money for another,) this hardly aspires to the level of dignity one would or should expect from the President of The United States of America.

Secondly, I would not walk across the street to have dinner with George Clooney. He is a fine actor, of that there is no doubt. I personally believe that the only interesting things he has ever said, at least when ever a recording device was able to capture it, were written for him by somebody else. Unscripted, I have found him to be smug, pompous, arrogant, idiotic, and worse. What’s more, he is an classic Jew hater, and for me, that is a non starter. His aunt Rosemary must be spinning in her grave furiously over his support for the thugs who wish to wipe Israel off of the map and kill every Jew on the planet. His speech a few years ago about his environmental beliefs while receiving some type of acting award can only be characterized as moronic. The people who are willing to drone on endlessly and with authority about subjects that they have every conceivable fact dangerously wrong are my least favorite people in the world. He is a huge anti Malaria advocate, which would be hilarious for the fact that it is his movement and activism that is the leading progenitor of Malaria in today’s world. What makes it not hilarious however is the horrifying fact that the number of people who have died needlessly due to the moronic activism of the environmental gang now tops 100 Million. George Clooney pretends to care for the same reason that all of these freaks who live and work in the make believe world of entertainment pretend to care. Acting like you care sells their image and helps them to get rich via the same system that they are trying to destroy for the rest of us. Maybe that is a little harsh, but Clooney deserves every word of it. Quite frankly, I am not at all interested in seeing George Clooney alive.

At least with the entire cast of, “Girls Gone Wild,” I would have the good fortune to enjoy my very own private peep show. That Obama Campaign gurus would be worth a finskaru to me.

    Here’s the thing, I actually did spend a lot of time thinking about that particular line. I sat in front of my keyboard and gave it a good 20 minute think, and here is why I wrote it, and still stand by it. George Clooney, whether he realizes it or not, has aligned himself with people who wish to not only kill me, but all of my people as well. I am not meaning to threaten George Clooney, as I have faith that his efforts to rid the entire world of Jews will not be successful. I would however not shed a single tear at his passing, as to me, he is nothing more than a dolt who openly supports the death of all Jews. Literally, I have no feelings towards Clooney’s continued good health one way or the other. I am just not interested at all in seeing him continue to draw breath, as I am for pretty much the remainder of man kind. He is after all, even if it is not personal for him, trying to put an end to my own existence.

    Clooney can act, but I am not particularly a fan.
    When he moved to LA to try to launch his carrer,
    he moved in with his aunt Rosemary.
    She took him in & helped with her show biz connections.
    He repaid her by going on a late night program & mock
    her for being overweight.
    Years later Obama did about the samne thing. Grandma
    took him in & sacrificed to feed, clothe & educate
    him. He repayed her by asserting that she was a racist
    (typical white woman) when he needed cover from wright.
    Clooney & Obama deserve eachother.

    Used to do this for a living. Was an ROV pilot/mechanic for Oceanering. SOme of the animals and stuff you would see under the oil drilling platforms was truly spectacular. But have you ever tried to find a 1 1/2 inch wrench that fell in 5600Ft of water? not fun!!

    The problem with celebrities like George is, that they don’t have a clue how stupid they are, and actually think that they are super geniuses.

    If I were to say simply that I don’t wish to see him alive, then the obvious corollary would be that I’m not altogether opposed to seeing him dead. While there may be some celebrities and politicians out there who I’d fancy seeing as non-consumers of oxygen, George Clooney doesn’t number among them. He’s just an idiot, and not worth my time.

    I wouldn’t cross the street to piss on him, if he caught fire.

    Heh! I was about to say, “Well, that qualifies as ‘unusual circumstances’, morons in government.” Then I realized how wrong that was.

    Absolutely insane. A dropped wrench on the seafloor poses no more threat than a rock, and I presume there are a few rocks down there. Worst case, it might provide habitat for a colony of critters that don’t thrive in mud.
