We’ve come a long way. They said it couldn’t be done: a person won the presidency. He was, and is, Barack Obama.
This November, we rallied under the common banner of hope and change and a belief in a better America, and we accomplished what Washington lobbyists called impossible: we won. And on January 20th, Barack Obama and Joe Biden will be sworn in as Presidents of the United States, and a Vice President.
We’ve come a long way, but what if it’s not over? What if they decide to have another election between now and the inauguration? We’re the best-oiled campaign ever to run a White House attempt, but we’re not all-seeing. We would be completely effing blindsided.
They would catch us by surprise and they would outspend us tenfold -- we spent all our money getting elected. Maybe we need a “bailout.” That’s a little joke, but with a kernel of truth.
The idea of another election -- it freaked ourselves out just now. We’re on the home stretch, and we owe it all to you -- now we just need that one push over the finish line.
Please donate today. We won, and we can win again, and we can keep winning until January 20th, no matter how many elections they throw at us. Now That’s What I Call Change. Volume Twenty.
And speaking of the element of surprise -- if we startle you into it, maybe you’ll stop whDONATE NOW HEY!!!
Obama for America
He had a yellow inflatable tube around his waist, the kind with a comical duck head. There was a tiny fish in one of his hands, and a trident in the other. In the background a squirrel wearing shades was water skiing.
Republicans announce that all legislation must be voted on at 2am in a secret chamber, with no one but the lobbyists who write the bills seeing a single line of text. Democrats' Response: Stumbling around a field stepping on rakes, handles smashing them directly in their faces every single time.
For fans of meaningless awards, these awards are extra meaningless.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
