An Open Letter to the Obama People

Abe Silk ’07 calls the Obama team out for fundraising overkill in an open letter in the Huffington Post, which was picked up by the NY Times‘ politicis blog, “The Caucus“.

Dear Obama People,

it’s now January, Obama People, and I’m way over this thing. Prior to this very minute, it had been damn near two months since I even once thought about Todd Palin. So why, why, why for the love of God are you still sending me emails asking me to give you money? Seriously, I got one on December 30th and January 6th. You guys really want me to donate 25 dollars “to make the inauguration a success?” What on earth does that even mean? 25 bucks will buy maybe three crab cakes at a reception that I’m not invited to and would assuredly be sent to federal prison if I tried to attend, provided I wasn’t gunned down first. If you really want my money, Obama People, you’re going to need to work a little harder for it…

Especially when considering the amount of cash these people are already throwing down for the event.

    Either you’re wrong and they’re raising funds for nothing, or you’re right and the camp’s emails mention nothing about the nature of their financial needs. Both merit complaints.And if you’re sick of hearing everyone’s feelings about the election, stop expounding your own.

    This is fucking stupid. The DNC took on a lot of debt at the end of the campaign to get Barack elected and now they have a legitimate need to fund raise in order to pay that debt down. I’m sick of hearing people feel out loud (or through type) about the election. Learn the facts and keep your complaints to those ignorant enough to take you seriously.

    One must be deemed worthy by the great Huffington herself. Apparently it’s not too difficult.
