Win dinner with Barack Obama and…

posted at 2:01 pm on June 3, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Let’s prepare to close out the weekend with something which doesn’t fit any other possible category except “bizarre.” Alert readers are likely already aware that the President celebrated Friday’s dismal jobs report by striking out on a breathtaking series of six campaign appearances to help shore up the nation’s economy. You might think that would be enough for most people. (I mean, how much more can the guy do for us? He must be exhausted!) But no! There’s more campaign goodness in store.

Without much fanfare, Team Obama rolled out a new ad which will be running tonight during the MTV Movie Awards. It offers the opportunity for two lucky people to have dinner with not only the President and the First Lady, but with two of the people I’m sure we’d all like to spend time with. One is Sarah Jessica Parker. The other, and the hostess of this advertisement, is Vogue editor-in-chief and real life inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada, Anna Wintour. If you’ve never heard Ms. Wintour speak, it’s an experience which is.. ummm… why don’t I just let you watch it yourself.

I’m sorry, but that’s just creepy on some level I find difficult to describe. And is the MTV Movie Awards really where you want to be planting your flag, so to speak?

Yes, we get that Obama is trying to appeal to the kids/fashionistas by launching on MTV. And the awards show is fun and watchable because unlike other glad-handing awards shows, it is unpredictable. But for that reason, the ad buy raises a lot of political questions.

Like why would the President sponsor a show with such a long history of f-bomb dropping, Howard Stern butt-cheek baring and more tonsil-hockey playing than anyplace this side of the last song at a high school dance?

Not only that, but Anna Wintour? Really? Anna “Nuclear” Wintour, the alleged boss-from-hell who was the inspiration for “The Devil Wears Prada.” Doesn’t that just re-emphasize the elite, Coastal, liberal image that Republicans love to mock Obama for? It would be like if Mitt Romney were to hold a fundraiser at a place called Chateau Something….co-hosted by a CEO who just said she was going to shed 25,000 jobs from her company.

Honestly, who has their hand on the tiller over at the Obama reelection headquarters these days? This isn’t just phoning it in, it’s much closer to just generating campaign fodder for your opponent. Either way, enjoy the show! I know I won’t be watching.

I suppose we can close with this, submitted without comment.

Upset your nominee isn’t cool are we???? Don’t worry, maybe senator Jose Ribio might be cool enough in 4 years to save you all.

This coming from a guy who has never know cool. Funny!

Some of those were men, right?

Why would anyone in their right mind want to have dinner with that woman?

I mean, I’d have to wear a parka and a sweater.

beatcanvas on June 3, 2012 at 2:52 PM

My goodness! What a sad display of vanity! Is this what that woman thinks life is all about, wearing fancy clothes and bragging about who she knows? I’d hate to tell her, but I found her exceptionally ugly. I’d just die if my wife looked or talked like that. Can you imagine sex with a woman like that? Ugh!

BillCarson on June 3, 2012 at 2:52 PM

Oh, and I forgot this. Hat Tip rogerb.

By your analysis, I hope you understand why most progressives brand conservatives as people who hate minorities. In other words racists.

Style over substance only works when you don’t have an actual record, hon.

And FTR — that doofus with the swizzle-stick body & jug-ears is only considered “cool” by brain dead losers who live on the uppereastside. As it’s been said before: if you had any talent you’d live on the upperwestside.

Heh. That reminds me of the episode of Gilligan’s Island where Kurt Russell was a jungle boy. The Howells were gonna teach him dining etiquette.
Mr Howell says to Lovey “If he eats with the fork with his right hand, he’s from Harvard. If he eats with it in his left hand, he’s from Princeton.”

Russell picks up the fork and begins eating it.

Mr. Howell exclaims “Good heavens! A Yale man!”

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 3:00 PM

What’s with the phony accent? Is she challenging Katherine Hepburn or Cary Grant?

walkingboss on June 3, 2012 at 2:06 PM

I think she’s channeling the O, like when he slips into his southern Baptist preacher mode and drops his g’s. Or when he goes into his ‘hood wassup wassup mode. And there’s his Thurston Howell III voice when he has to put on his Ivy League persona.

KOOLAID2 on June 3, 2012 at 3:01 PM

Brilliant marketing strategy! I’m starting to believe Obama has a chance now.

For $3, you get a chance at dinner with Obama, Michelle, and Wintour. BUT if you max out at $4600, you can eat at home alone!

Where’s my checkbook?

Uppereastside on June 3, 2012 at 2:35 PM

I’ve noticed in the past that you can’t spell, but your grammar is atrocious. Where did you go to school?

Here’s a primer based on your last sentence…

Upset your nominee isn’t cool[missing comma] are we ["we" would imply that you're including yourself, and clearly you're not. The faux pretentiousness in your tone doesn't really work here - "you" would be better]???? Don’t worry, maybe senator [Senator is a proper title] Jose Ribio might be cool enough in 4 years to save you all.

You’re really not as smart as you wish you were. Nearly every comment shows it. But keep writing… really… please do.

IF your favorite candidate was planning an all out assault against Romney as “Mr. Elusive Snobby Pants” and came up with this, you’d lash out too like uppereastside. It’s hilarious how many things this campaign can do wrong, on the very week they let AXELROD lead a campaign rally.

Look at the bright side: in a few months Obama will be available to butt-licking sycophants like you 24/7, and won’t have to spend so much raising money, playing golf, vacationing, leaking secrets, and ruining the country. Cheers!

Adjoran on June 3, 2012 at 3:05 PM

The only way Barry can become “cool” is to assume room temperature in a chilly environment. And I hope he won’t do that before facing military tribunal and then a firing squad.

Allah shave, slap on a wig and a dress and cram those feet into nine-inch black stilettos that are two sizes too small. Make sure you take a pair or of garden shears to those toe nails and spray paint those bad boys a nice shade of red. Make sure they match your lipstick color and shave your pits.

I just entered Ed and you. Your welcome.

Enjoy.

The Notorious G.O.P on June 3, 2012 at 3:14 PM

What is that red stuff on top of Wintours head? Is it meant to be a wig? I do wonder where all the LittleLeftists are while this goes on, do they notice or are the blinders on too tight. You know, all the crap about “The Rich” & Republicans, yeah, and the infamous Koch Brothers. But then there’s the good rich and the bad rich, or do most of them even get that far in their thinking?

justltl on June 3, 2012 at 3:30 PM

Good grief. I admit I never heard of Anna Wintour before today (I’m not exactly Vogue material), but that video was an eye-opener. She sounds like she should be languidly spread out on a chaise lounge in Downton Abbey, sipping sherry and ordering the servants about. Which is probably why the nouveau riche Obamas wanted her for their dinner.

Also, I tried watching Sex And The City, and simply could not connect with the vapidity.

Bubba Redneck on June 3, 2012 at 3:13 PM

I assume she has dual citizenship. However, she is an OBE, too. I can’t stand people like her.

Blake on June 3, 2012 at 3:32 PM

I’m somewhat surprised that Wintour didn’t promise a nude hot tub party with the three of them following dinner. That’s the only thing that would make this ridiculous “fundraiser” even worse.

Back to their contest, I wouldn’t dine with those three if I hadn’t eaten in a month and that was might last shot at some food.

TXUS on June 3, 2012 at 3:33 PM

That woman’s nostrils look big enough to accomodate two fingers each.

Maybe I’m out of line by saying that. Who could know if that was really a woman from just a 44-second video?

86 on June 3, 2012 at 3:34 PM

I would rather get on all fours and share a bowl of food with my dogs – gawd! that woman is major creepy – not to mention the other two no-class poseurs – and! I wanna know how Chris Noth could do what he did – ewwwww…

karra on June 3, 2012 at 3:39 PM

Come and dine with the “good” one-percenters. You know, the one-percenters with slightly larger brains than those other one-percenters and far more compassion.

pjean on June 3, 2012 at 3:40 PM

I know I would spend the evening in disbelief that “some of the most incredible women in the world” actually act like that. By contrast, I bet dinner with the Romney’s would be really nice.

But does she ride elite fussy pretentious dressage horses? Honestly when I think of the war on women people in the fashion industry and Ms Wintour in particular have done more to sexualize and hurt the self esteem of young women than you can ever imagine. Anyone over a size two wearing anything but a designer outfit is castigated by her. There is no way Ms Wintour would let a woman like Michelle Obama anywhere near Vogue if her husband wasnt president. But hey Obama is so in touch with middle america.

I would much rather have dinner with Meryl Streep playing Anna Wintour than with Anna Wintour. Having dinner with Anna Wintour would be more akin to having dinner with Christiane Amanpour, a truly horrific prospect.

If Anna Wintour and Newt Gingrich had a love child, would it be named Newtcular Wintour?

Mr. Arkadin on June 3, 2012 at 3:56 PM

I am under no illusion that I’d get to join Anna’s clique. It’s more “pick four people that you would like to have your last meal with” thing. They wouldn’t be my first first four — maybe Barry — but they’d be fun.

Nobody ‘hates’ a successful capitalist, you imbecile. However, one does have misgivings about ‘capitalists’ who would pull the ladder up behind them. Like, oh, I dunno, Warren Buffet?

“But he’s made so many millionaires!”

And he would still be rich even if he hadn’t.

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 4:20 PM

You know? I remember the Obama’s first date night in NYC as the first couple. It cost us tens of millions of dollars if not hundreds of millions and we were subjected to the spectacle of our press losing their minds in sickening adoration of a man who had, as yet, done absolutely nothing of any note. No talent. not particularly pleasing to look at or even interesting to look at. But there we all were, forced to pay for a date and endure the humiliation of our press.

I? can’t wait to see what Michelle Obama wears …

Can you imagine sex with a woman like that? Ugh!

BillCarson on June 3, 2012 at 2:52 PM

There wouldn’t be any. See the movie.

Jaibones on June 3, 2012 at 4:21 PM

Let them eat cake

Wintour has done very well for a lower class Brit.

But she’s obviously too cheap to pay for a voice coach. That accent is laughable. She sounds like she is from east London and trying to be ‘posh’.

Or maybe you can curl up with a TV dinner and watch his speeches on the Queen’s ipod. I’ll send the TNT.

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 4:01 PM

I would love to have dinner with this bunch. I have a very quick and biting wit which would have all of them crying except for Worf. I would have to keep the table between the two of us.

Rio Linda Refugee on June 3, 2012 at 4:22 PM

I’m not sure why you hate a successful capitalist like Anna Wintour.

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 4:15 PM

If being a successful capitalist made one likeable then everyone would be doing it. Wintour is an unpleasant individual. Definitely not likeable. I don’t understand your point.

“Your funeral, Seymore.”

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 4:24 PM

The winners should be aware that they are likely to be the stars of the “Don’t Do This” back page of one of Wintour’s magazines.

urban would define Soros as a capitalist. Word games. That’s all they have.

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 4:25 PM

Oh! Now I know why Meryl Streep was so ugly looking in that movie.

(Apologies to any whom I’ve plagiarized.)

RedCrow on June 3, 2012 at 4:27 PM

Just what I want, a dinner with a bunch of self absorbed people.

The Notorious G.O.P on June 3, 2012 at 3:14 PM

Obama’s been into “Total absorption” his entire life…

ITguy on June 3, 2012 at 4:29 PM

Oh please, your attempt to appear important is pathetically prententious. And “Barry”…really? OMG You are so easy to ridicule.

Deanna on June 3, 2012 at 4:09 PM

Actually, Barry was kind of a nod to the diminutives by which y’all often refer to the President of the United States. We’re all informal here, right. Anna’s not in the room?

And when did I pretend to be important. Rest assured that I am not. I just think it would be a interesting conversation.

I’m pretty sure I’d enjoy being the turd in the punch bowl if I were to attend a dinner with those 4.

stldave on June 3, 2012 at 4:10 PM

Pretty sure you’ve already got the turd part down.

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 4:29 PM

Who wants to spend an evening with one of the most obnoxious women on earth? And that Devil Wears Prada woman?

novaculus on June 3, 2012 at 4:33 PM

That’s what I was thinking!!!

After reading that book….I wanted to punch her.

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 4:29 PM

Your presence here is indicative of your self-absorbed importance.

I, like most here, chuckle at your faux intelligence.

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 4:34 PM

By your analysis, I hope you understand why most progressives brand conservatives as people who hate minorities. In other words racists.

Uppereastside on May 20, 2012 at 9:49 AM

Riiiight. But you’re the one who referred to Florida Senator Marco Rubio as “Senator Jose Ribio”.

And conservatives are the racists?
