Obama makes Willamette Week Rogue of the Week

The Willamette Week, one of the state’s few equal opportunity critics, is starting off the year by taking one of their celebrities to task. They make a great point.

“[S]ending multiple emails offering us a chance to win one of 10 tickets to the Jan. 20 inauguration””if we donate $25 or more? Guess what, Mr. President-elect. We’ve lost our jobs. We’re so broke after the holidays we can’t even remember what money looks like. So please, stop guilting us for cash in the middle of a recession so you can throw a massive party we can’t attend. Until you stop with the nickel-and-diming, we’re swearing you in as our first Rogue of 2009. “

    Oh wow, now thats tacky. You sure this wasnt some scam email? I gotta tell you, this sounds way too tacky even for this crowd. Keep in mind I am saying this about the bunch that thought it was a good idea to appoint Richardson for commerce secretary while he was under a bribery investigtion.

    Then again though, I do seem to remember a promise of an ethical administration and they chucked that one under the bus when they put Tom Daschle in charge of 40% of the federal budget.

    There is no such thing as too tacky for “this crowd.”

    Wow. Good for Willamette Week.

  • Roger Alvey

    He is building up his war chest to pay his attorney’s for the scandals we don’t know about yet, the lies we haven’t uncovered yet and the poor judgment he has shown and will no doubt continue to show.

    Obama needs the money after hiring three law firms and paying over a $100,000 (plus the lawyers the Democratic party paid for), to keep his original birth certificate under wraps. Yep, this is change!
