04:59 pm - Dear Barack Obama:
Dude. You know I love ya, man. I totally got your back. But hey, listen: I'm a disabled vet with a chronic illness. I only work part-time. I've got medical bills up the wazoo, and dogs and cats to support. Yet even so, I've donated to your campaign not once, not twice, but more than three times now.

Listen, man, I'm not complaining -- really, I've got it pretty damn good compared to a lot of people in this country. But I have to tell you, next time you run for President, for God's sake get someone to code in something to your mass email software so that you don't keep asking for donations when someone just donated THAT DAY.

Seriously. Get it coded. Or call me and I'll code it for you, no charge. Because after donating again today for the final push toward election day, I've gotten two more emails asking me to donate "just one last time." 

Bud, you've totally got my support. In fact, I've already voted for you through early voting, so it's not like the extra donation requests are going to lose you a vital part of the vote in my State with its five, count 'em, five whole electoral votes. It's just that, hey, I'm down with the grassroots effort, and I'm beyond impressed that you've managed to get as far as you have without special interest money and so forth, but you know, the economy kind of sucks right now and it's a bit difficult to pull funds together, so a 24-hour break from donation requests once someone has donated would be a kindness.

Just sayin'. Hey, don't take it personally, though. Remember: who loves ya, baby? That's right: it's MrsV.

Don't party too hearty on election night, man, and give Michelle a hug for me. I sometimes think this campaign might be tougher on her than on anyone and she has kicked ASS throughout it all.

Love and hugs,

Current Mood: gigglygiggly

No kidding. But seriously -- two emails in the same DAY?

I actually would have volunteered when they asked for coders, but they only wanted people who could volunteer full time up through the election and there was no way I could do that. Heh.

I dare you to send that, assuming you haven't... because you want to bet that he needs a laugh now and again too!

Honestly, if I had an email address for him, I totally would.

His email address is here;

under contacts.

Hee. Oh I also think you should send this to him. *Someone* there should read it and they may pass it on, you never know.

It's funny though - it never occurred to me to blink at the several donation emails a day (even when I've just donated) in my inbox. This is just not something that ever registered for me as something to think about. Maybe because I'm just so used to getting a ton of spam from e-tailers!

(Or maybe 'cos I have a particular addy for all that sort of thing, so it doesn't clutter up my "personal email" inbox.)

I just sent them a polite email explaining that my .ca address means that I am a Canadian not a Californian and therefore can't contribute to the campaign even though I would really like to, god denying socialist that I am. The emails just stopped like a gift from that deity that doesn't exist.
