I was going to post about the Obama campaign's asinine suggestion that people with gift giving events coming up (think weddings, showers, birthdays) ask their invitees to donate to Blowie's campaign in lieu of a gift.

Smarter and funnier people beat me to it.  I would like to add that Emily Post should call someone at the White House and remind them that formal etiquette dictates that you never mention gifts, much less tell people what to do instead of get you the gift you were obviously expecting.   

Here, now, are the top ten rejected Obama Fundraising schemes, as seen on White House Dossier:
1. Going to church this Sunday? When they pass the hat, reach in, take the money out, and send it to President Obama.

2. Did your rich uncle recently pass away? Please consider donating a portion of your inheritance in his name to the Obama campaign.

3. Do you yourself have a terminal illness? Make sure your will reflects your commitment to President Obama.

4. Are you one of the few people who shorted Facebook? Don’t forget the Obama campaign. And pick up some Nicorette for him.

5. Planning on robbing a 7-11 this week? Please remember to share a portion of the loot with President Obama.

6. Counting cards in Las Vegas? Don’t forget to share some of the winnings with your president.

7. Running a pyramid scheme for your financial clients? Please send the Obama campaign a portion of the “investments” before the scheme collapses.

8. You know your children don’t keep track of the money in their checking accounts. Remove half of it and send it to President Obama.

9. Planning to kill someone for the insurance money? Assuming you get away with it, please donate a share of the proceeds to Obama 2012.

10. Tired of being criticized for being in the “one percent”? Take a moment to donate enough to the Obama campaign so that you can boast that you are merely a member of the “two percent.”

You have an extra kidney. Sell one and donate the money to Obama.
