“I can’t believe I’m typing this!” squealed Marlon Marshall, Deputy National Field Director of the Obama campaign. In the campaign’s latest “personal” e-mail, he writes,
I'm so jealous of you that I can barely write the rest of this.
He’ll suck it up, though.
Imagine shooting hoops with Carmelo Anthony, Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Kyrie Irving, and Alonzo Mourning. Oh, and you’ll get to meet President Obama and Michael Jordan over dinner, too.
It won’t be at Chick-Fil-A.
Now stop dreaming and make it happen. You and a guest of your choice could join President Obama and some of the greatest basketball stars for a special night at the Obama Classic.
The Obama Classic? Named the event after himself? You’ve got to be kidding.
Pitch in to this campaign, and you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win.
Hit the court with Patrick Ewing and Melo? Trade stories with the President? This is the kind of stuff your kids will tell their kids, and no one will believe it until you show them a photo.
Trading stories with Obama? Just ask him to tell you the real story of his college career; that will keep it short.
Don't worry if suiting up with hoops stars isn't your thing. I know you've got a kid or a friend who would love nothing more than to play with their heroes while you cheer them on from a courtside seat.
Basketball stars = heroes in Obama’s mind. Glad to know he’s got his priorities straight.
If you've been waiting for the right moment to chip in and support the President, it's time to get off the bench.
Donate today to automatically get your name in the hat.
Even though I'm jealous, I hope you win.
Obama has been auctioning off movie stars, TV stars, and now basketball stars as if he were an auction salesman. But what’s worth waiting for are the auction salesman’s final words in November regarding the Obama presidency:
Going, going, gone.
