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.

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

I like Barry…. I want to know where she gets her manicures.

Key West Reader on June 3, 2012 at 4:37 PM

Explain why this is not a complete non-sequiter, please.

There is no such thing as a non-sequiter.

Unless you meant a non-sequitur.

Brought to you by a person unqualified to serve in a Democrat administration (a high school graduate).

El Salsero on June 3, 2012 at 4:38 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

As opposed to your presence, giving us all the benefit of your wisdom?

All I said today was that I’d like to go to dinner. Somehow, that annoys bitter people like you.

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 4:38 PM

Yeah, I’m 18 and want to have dinner with a bunch of fossils, especially one that sounds like a cranky aunt. YAY! Sign me up.

Couldn’t they find someone a tad younger or more “relevant” to the teeny boppers who watch that crap? Guess not.

Good catch.

By the way, it’s “DemocratIC” administration. unless you’re engaged in the sort of puerile name-gaming that I’m sure you’re above.

How many high school graduates will Harvard Man Romney have in his administration, do you think?

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 4:40 PM

Barack Obama
Michelle Obama
Sarah Jessica Parker
Anna Wintour

Four of these things belong together. Four of these things are kind of the same. But one of things just doesn’t belong here. And now it’s time to play our game. It’s time to play our game.

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 4:40 PM

No, it is most certainly not democratIC, you fool. More word games by the ‘rats.

Democratic is an adjective meant to give the appearance of fair play.
Democrat, a noun, like ‘Republican’ is an old epithet meaning ‘one who panders to the mindless whims of the masses.

Who is it that stands in the way of voter identification? Ain’t the Rethuglicans, that’s for sure.
But, on the other hand, which party is it that wants to inform people of who did and who did not vote.

Why, that would be the democrat party.

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 4:45 PM

My thoughts exactly.

One of the latest cache political terms is “optics.”

The optics of this are an elitist editor and grande dame of the fashionistas all over the tv and internet telling us how SCFOAMF is a hero of the little people.

Best Romney ad ever

Stop projecting you hateful racist.

I don’t hate a woman who was groomed from childhood to do what she evidently enjoys.

Good Lord, even if you are a simpering sycophant, don’t you feel just a twinge of embarrassment having your President referred to like that?

I don’t care what party you belong to, POTUS is not supposed to act or be treated like he’s auditioning for the cover of “Tiger Beat” magazine.

Speaking of trolls, did KeninCT get banned?

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 3:06 PM

I was wondering the same thing about AngryEd. I went on vacation for a week and haven’t seen him since before I left.

Bitter Clinger on June 3, 2012 at 3:29 PM

Well, NASCAR season in CT is in full swing (30+ NASCAR races in that state alone this season). That’s where Ken is.

As for angryed, I think he banned himself. He had already started to melt down when Romney started to pull away from the pack, and then he went totally ballistic and started to insult the US military, who had absolutely nothing at all to do with Romney getting the nomination.

A lefty cannot do much except word games, phony anger, propaganda, etc.
Why do you think lefty radio always fails and then have to go steal money from boys/girls clubs to remain on the air? Or why they have abysmal ratings on television?

Anger and hatred just do not sell. Anger is an almost impossible emotion to maintain.

8 years of Bush-bashing and the best they could do was not even 53% of the voters against the worst candidate in history?

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 4:40 PM

In 2008 O’bama won 70% of the high school dropout vote.

No Presidential candidate had ever gotten that many before.

You must be so proud of him, knowing he’ll need the other 30% of them to have a chance.

wiki

She is the eldest daughter of Charles Wintour, editor of the London Evening Standard. Anna became interested in fashion as a teenager. Her father consulted her on how to make the newspaper relevant to the youth of the era. Her career in fashion journalism began at two British magazines.

Her brother also inherited some success as well. That would be Patrick Wintour, political editor of the Far-Left Guardian.

Del Dolemonte on June 3, 2012 at 5:16 PM

So I heard the color for this summer is tangerine orange… Is that the color of the Obama scarf she is wearing?

Isn’t this the woman who picks the colors the rest of us are hit with each season?

Obama is out of style. You would think someone like that would know.

The “blast” would be completely on their part, as they mock you & laugh at you to your face with insider-references that would go over your rube head. Poor little peasant, just happy to be among his betters, doesn’t realize he’s the equivalent of the court jester to them.

I’d totally love to be a fly on the wall to see it, but I wouldn’t pay 3 cents, much less $3 to do so.

Vogue US is created on the foundation of white affluence and wealth. The top positions in Vogue US are inherited, not earned. A truth that Anna Wintour proudly and gleefully admitted in the 2009 documentary ‘September Issue’ ( a rebuttal for the 2006 Academy award nominated ‘Devil Wears Prada’). Anna Wintour’s father (Charles Wintour, editor of the London Evening Standard) literally handed her over the job on a silver platter

I would love to win this contest and show up wearing polyester elastic-waist pants in cornflower blue, maybe with a snap-on flowered tunic for full effect. The most hideous clothing I could find…and then droll all over the Obamas as a “lifelong Democrat from a family of all Democrats” and watch them flinch. Also, I want to ask the Prada chick if that English accent is fake, ala Madonna. And what magazine does she have, anyway…Seventeen? Tiger Beat?

But I’m sure the optic handlers would never let me near Mama Obama while wearing polyester pants. *sigh*

Which Harvard graduate president had to have a teleprompter when speaking to a group of grade schoolers?

Which Harvard graduate president used a teleprompter for his staff meetings?

I have something on my FB page that is quite profound:

I wouldn’t say that Palin is definitely a moron because she drew a blank at perky Katie’s question about what periodicals she read. I’d like to see more well-documented, recorded blunders before dismissing her as a mindless talking head.

Did she call Europe a “country?” Did she say Austrians speak “Austrian?” Did she say Hawaii is in Asia? Did she say that there are 57 states? Does she think we need more “Arabic translators” in Afghanistan so we can understand the natives? Does she believe we have an “intercontinental” railroad?

Does she think the Constitution was written “20 centuries ago?” Did she claim that Emma Lazarus raised funds to build the Statue of Liberty? Does she think Mexico was a nation before the US was even an idea? Did the American army liberate Auschwitz?

Does she celebrate “Cinco de Cuatro”, admire the Penn State “Nitally” Lions, and root for the White Sox (not a one of whom she can identify by name) while reminiscing about the good ol’ days at “Cominskey Field?” Does she commend navy “corpse-men” and give a shout-out to the many fallen heroes who are in her audience? Does she lament the 10,000 dead in a Kansas storm when the death toll is actually 12? Does she really think a payment can decrease by 3000%? If she has asthma, does she grab for her “breathalyzer?”

Those are just a handful of idiocies I can pull off the top of my head.

But, of course, Sarah Palin did not utter them.

Lanceman on June 3, 2012 at 5:49 PM

Win a dinner with the president but lose your lunch.

Man, you nailed it right there. In addition to the ploy of getting millions (OK, at least 10′s) of supporters to send them $3 in hopes of “winning” this honor, the “winners” of these drawings are just props to be used. Do the shills sending in the money think that they will even be remembered once the Pres and the celebs leave the table? Just selecting a couple props from the Potemkin village, that’s it.

AZfederalist on June 3, 2012 at 5:55 PM

Good Gawd that woman scares the beejezus out of me! It’s just like an ex-boss of mine. WTF would I wear in order to ho-hum impress those TWO? It’s not like I have connections with Valentino or Oscar De La Renta and Manolo Blahnik’s with loaners from Tiffany’s. It’d be the same as being sponsored for an event!!!

Preparing for that event is a killer. Lib rednecks need not apply.

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.

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

Only if my last meal was raw dog meat would I want these people there. Then I could barf all over them without feeling regret.

As for Anna Wintour, she’s practicing to be Mistress of Hell in the afterlife. Hate is not the word most of us feel for her. Disgust is more accurate.

No you nailed it. Notice how urban looks down its nose with absolute contempt at us? Picture all 4 phonies at the table. Like a Hollywood lunch. Disingenuous and contemptuous to the core and each one thinking the other is stupid.

I vote against Obama and my next pair of shoes come from Payless?

FAAAAANNCY!

My last pair of shoes came from Wal-Mart… or maybe Target. Like I remember.

I’ll leave to others to debate the politics. Dinner with Barry, Michelle, Anna and Sarah (not so sure about the Sarah) would be an utter blast.

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 3:58 PM

Can you explain, without bringing politics into it, how having dinner with Michelle, Anna and SJP would be an “utter blast”?

Should I have known who this harlot was before today?

Jazz, you must be a fairly happy one right now,. Between this thread and the Creationist thread, you’ve put some good numbers up. Promotion imminent?

I would love to be there for one reason: To ask who kicked sand in the Devil and Barry’s vagina.

The Obama campaign’s first national television ad will debut tonight during the MTV Movie Awards, according the Entertainment News. The ad features Parker inviting supporters to her home for a fundraising dinner with the president, herself, Michelle Obama, and Vogue editor-in chief Anna Wintour.

In the ad the Sex and the City star is reported to say, “The guy who ended the war in Iraq, the guy who says you should be able to marry anyone you want, and the guy who created four million new jobs, that guy President Obama and Michelle are coming to my house for dinner on June 12. And I want you to be there too.”

Parker makes no mention of the escalating deficit or the rising youth unemployment number in the Obama spot. Sources tell ENews that MTV has also reached out to Mitt Romney about the possibility of running ads on the network. Source

I’m thinking about entering so I can cancel at the last minute telling them “something more important just came up”.

I don’t think they could find 4 uglier women tohave dinner with.

Unless it’s with the SJR from Hocus Pocus. Yummy.

Spliff Menendez on June 3, 2012 at 7:58 PM

Win dinner with Barack

Well, I’m sure the food be exquisite. Think they would make it to go?

Honestly, who has their hand on the tiller over at the Obama reelection headquarters these days

People who think the mindless chants of O-Bam-A and Yes We Can are going to work in 2012 after nearly four years of UNPRECEDENTED failure.

Happy Nomad on June 3, 2012 at 8:35 PM

Good Gawd that woman scares the beejezus out of me! It’s just like an ex-boss of mine. WTF would I wear in order to ho-hum impress those TWO? It’s not like I have connections with Valentino or Oscar De La Renta and Manolo Blahnik’s with loaners from Tiffany’s. It’d be the same as being sponsored for an event!!!

Preparing for that event is a killer. Lib rednecks need not apply.

ProudPalinFan on June 3, 2012 at 5:58 PM

Breitbart T-shirt and flip flops. Get a pedicure if you’re feeling extra special. ;)

It’s a toss up but the four of the five members of The View come to mind.

Win dinner with Barack Obama and…

Eat a large plate of Dawg Meat.

When Michelle sits down at the table you could say its a dog eat dog world.

Wear any old thing from Goodwill that is thirty years or so dated (with shoulder pads!) and REMIND Ms. Wintour that her candidate’s economic policies have reduced you to your current fashion state. Proceed to insult SJP’s inability to act, discuss her husband’s roles in sappy ’80s movies, completely ignore Michelle, and advise Anna to stay away from excessive sunlight since it is clearly doing her face little favors.

It will be a night to remember in New York! :-D

Punchenko on June 3, 2012 at 8:55 PM

About the last raffle for dinner at the Clooney fundraiser. From the WSJ.

Not everyone stood an equal chance of winning. The Obama campaign picked 50 entrants at random, then narrowed the list through background checks and a review of the finalists’ “views, backgrounds and interests,” contest rules show.

Republicans need not apply.

How many high school graduates will Harvard Man Romney have in his administration, do you think?

urban elitist on June 3, 2012 at 4:40 PM

I’m fairly certain that most members of the Romney administration will have their high school diplomas.
