  1. That’s one sharp mug!

  2. What does the donated money go to?

  3. “Obama for America”

    Beyond that, it’s a mystery. Maybe he still wants to pay Hillary’s campaign off. 🙂

  4. Speaking of is this never going to end…Obama for America is inviting Obamaites to meet locally for house meetings!

    “Join your friends and neighbors–sign up to host or attend a Change is Coming house meeting near you.”

    “…You can connect with fellow supporters, make progress on the issues you care about, and help shape the future of your community and our country.”

    “Learn what you can do now to support President-elect Obama’s agenda for change and continue to make a difference in your community.”

    Pretty scary.

  5. I was just getting ready to blog that!

    At least for the moment the display of Obama in our homes is not compulsory.

  7. Reading Comp 101 time, Kids.

    It says in the post, “When you make your donation, you’ll be supporting the Democratic National Committee.”

    Let’s assume that means, “When you make your donation, you’ll be supporting the Democratic National Committee.”

    See? This is easy.

    Dear grumps,

    When we give to the United Way, we are supporting a plethora of organizations, some of which we may believe in and some of which we may not. But we can request and obtain a copy of the list and then we know how their principles align with ours… or do not.

    When we give to the DNC, we are unaware of who is ultimately receiving the money. The mug makers may get some of the money… in which case it would be interesting to learn whether the mug was made in America or imported. Was it molded from earth-friendly clays and fired with earth-friendly glazes in earth-friendly kilns? How far did it travel and what is the carbon footprint of this mug? Carbon credits? What were the working conditions of the mug artisans or should I say factory workers and laborers? How many days without an accident or injury? What is the strength of their benefits package? Retirement? Could factories be re-tooled and displaced autoworkers go into the mug-making business? Or, could Obama’s face be decaled onto cars, to boost sales?

    Where else may the DNC fundraising go? A quick google for enlightenment and edification reveals Howard Dean’s goal as chairperson of the DNC is for the Democratic Party to win elections at every level in every region of the country, with Democrats organized in every single voting precinct in the country. (This from everyone’s wikipedia.) What strategy might they find effective? What has been effective in the past? Possibly muckraking and mudslinging the conservatives to embarass them from running… over issues liberals don’t find the least bit embarassing themselves. Clinton and Obama were elected despite admitting to drug use, Clinton stayed in office despite affairs, etc. The antidote would be for conservatives to unite, under the banner of forgiveness and mercy, and grow a thick skin!

    Or infiltrate the meetings, buy a mug to look like you fit in, and in the process know you’ve funded something…

  9. Um, what?

    You leave an ellipsis as if you wished to continue writing but just, sort of, wound down. You go on and on like the effin’ desert but don’t say a whole lot there, Tink.

    Dear, dear grumps,

    It is not that I wished to continue writing, but that a reader may wish to continue thinking. The story ends where it begins, contemplating what is being funded.

    Your attempt to dis me has been noted. However it has truly revealed more about yourself. We understand your vocabulary is quite small and it is difficult for you to rise to a level of conversation on ideology and extrapolation. What you lack in thought you more than make up for in slang. That is not a good characteristic, even for a self-admitted grump.
