At Least He's Asking

Mickey Kaus asks:

Old lists never die: Will Obama ever stop asking me for money? Or is it all fundraising, all the way out?

Quoting from the fundraising email sent by Obama:

Donate $5 or more now. You could be part of the historic events you made possible.

Five bucks, eh?

Well. A few weeks ago, Glenn noted Starbucks’ bad quarter:

SO I GUESS THE OBAMA VICTORY WASN’T A TRIUMPH FOR LATTE LIBERALISM AFTER ALL: Starbucks 4th-quarter profit falls 97 percent.

And he posted an email we sent to him in response:

Yes, that’s obvious in hindsight. All the latte-liberals cut their Stabucks intake to send that money to Obama.

The real question is, will Obama let them go back to spending money at Starbucks — or, once in office, will he continue to ask them to donate to His Cause, never again to return to, what is, let’s face it, just the transient trappings of capitalist self-indulgence.

“Just remember that if you purchase that cup of coffee, the taste will be bitter as you consider what that money could have done to help Barack Obama change the world.”

Just don’t act surprised. Michelle already told us we would have to give up our pie.

It was only natural for coffee to be next.

Then again, it is a bit mildly surprising.

That Obama is even asking.

Michelle told us he would demand it.
