I hear Barack Obama is celebrating a birthday today.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama will celebrate … in Boston with a giant fundraising event at the State Room on Aug. 4.
The first-term senator from Illinois, a graduate of Harvard Law School, will mark [the] birthday in a room with one of the great panoramic views of Boston Harbor. The State Room, on the 33rd floor of 60 State Street, features a glass wall, 30 feet by 120 feet and the facility seats up to 800.
Wow, what a fancy party. I didn’t even realize he knew when my birthday was. Regardless, I’d like to thank the Obama campaign for holding such a big celebration on my birthday. (Yeah, I used to think I had a cool birthday, sharing with the likes of Roger Clemens and John Riggins… and recently I realized that fate had another name to add to the list: Barack Hussein Obama. Joy)
But I guess if he doesn’t even give birthday presents to his daughters, I probably shouldn’t be expecting a new bike or anything.
The Obama campaign is asking for donations in honor of today’s birthday, but they’ve inadvertently linked to their own campaign contribution website instead of my donation page. I’m sure this is a simple oversight, what with having to campaign in 57 states and all, but to be sure, you can click the “Make a Donation” link on the right and make an Obama Offset Contribution to show that you are environmentally conscious… Every donation will be used to offset the damage caused by liberalism in my environment.
