The latest raffle-for-Obama stunt is this Dinner with Barack and Michelle video,
The whole contrived mess sounds like a composite as it explains that they “spent the whole day together” on their first date and capped it by seeing Do the Right Thing, the Spike Lee movie about a racial riot, because it’s all about being “hip, cutting edge, cultural, sensitive”. All to get you to enter the raffle (yet another one!) for dinner with the First Couple,
The winners will each receive round-trip tickets for them and a guest from within the fifty U.S. States, DC, or Puerto Rico to a destination to be determined by the sponsor.
Whoever the sponsor is?
They will stay in a hotel and have dinner with the president and his wife at an undisclosed location – the competition states that the package is worth about $4,800.
In case you didn’t win dinner with SJP, Anna Wintour & the Obamas, here’s your chance.
Meanwhile, Buzzfeed’s busy CGI’ing Ann Romney into Viagra ads, in the hopes of attracting “the youth vote” by undercutting her – since that’s worked so well.
The youth vote may, on the other hand, have time to spend on Buzzfeed since we’re seeing the lowest employment rate for Americans ages 18 to 24 since the government began keeping track in 1948.
But, when you have an incumbent who desperately wants to get re-elected with the official unemployment rate at 8.2% (more likely at 11%), the lowest workforce participation rate in this century, and $3.50 gas, you know you’ll be seeing more creepy ads.
And yet… unintended consequences…
Who knows? Maybe showing the father of five sons (oh, yes, there are a lot of people in in America from cultural backgrounds* where that’s considered the apex of masculinity and potency) will boost Pfizer’s sales even more.
