Rufus Raffles Last Supper with Barack and Michelle

Rufus Gifford, the National Finance Director of Obama for America, has a new twist on the Dinner with Barack V Sweepstakes:
When the President says he's bringing the First Lady as his date to the next Dinner with Barack, you pull up another chair.

This doesn't happen very often -- in fact, a dinner like this has only happened once before, and it could very well be the last one on this campaign.

This is your shot. We'll be flying out three supporters and their guests for dinner with the Obamas.

Donate $150 or whatever you can today, and it can be you -- you'll be automatically entered to win:


Well, who wouldn't buy raffle tickets to the last supper?

I won't, after reading the fine print:
Sponsor may, at its option, conduct a background check on each potential winner. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any potential winner from receiving any prize based on such background check if Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion that awarding any prize to such potential winner could result in a safety or security risk to any person or persons or could result in the disruption of any event associated with the Promotion.
I'm pretty sure the risk of my asking the question, "Are you a socialist?" would be considered disruptive. Yet I wonder if they would let in someone from Occupy Wall Street?

Maybe it's just the capitalist in me but I seem to remember that just last week Julianna Smoot was raffling dinner with the President for $135. Add Michelle and its $150. That's $135 for the President, plus just $15 more for the First Lady. She should sue the campaign under the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
