I've got to be honest, I don't care who wins this last Dinner with Barack.
All I care about is who wins on November 6th.
Sure, this dinner will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll tell your grandkids about and all that jazz, but here's why I really think you should chip in $5 or whatever you can to be automatically entered:
You'll help build this campaign just in time for the home stretch, when we're making critical win-or-lose budget decisions.
So there you have it. Enter this cool contest, and help President Obama win the much bigger one coming up in just 47 days:
Ann Marie Habershaw Chief Operating Officer Obama for America
P.S. -- To make the deal even sweeter, we're picking up the tab for your dinner, hotel, and airfare, so really -- why not?
No purchase, payment, or contribution necessary to enter or win. Contributing will not improve chances of winning. Void where prohibited. Entries must be received by September 25, 2012.

Promotion subject to Official Rules and additional restrictions on eligibility. Sponsor: Obama for America, 130 E. Randolph St., Chicago, IL 60601.
“approximate retail value of all prizes $4,800”
Does this mean that the “winners” will be receiving a tax form from the government showing that the “winners” need to report the $4,800 on their Federal and state tax returns for 2012? I mean after all, since they are calling it a prize, why would the IRS want to treat it any differently from the prizes that contestants win on TV shows?
That’s a very bizarre email.
I haven’t seen one like this from them before. Very desperate and very bizarre.
