If you happen to be on the Obama campaign’s rather extensive email list, you know by now to expect at least one email per day from the president, his wife, Joe Biden, Jill Biden or some random campaign hack asking for money. I personally don’t think I’ve read a single one in the past four years. The frequency and pleading tone of the emails is a little ridiculous. And Jon Stewart has had enough.
“Seriously, there are exiled Nigerian princes getting Obama campaign e-mails going, ‘Ease up on the money thing, fellow,” Stewart said. “And the ones from Barack Obama have the subject line ‘Hey.’ This is wrong. You don’t need to address anyone as ‘Hey’ to be cool. You’re the president. That’s pretty f***ing cool. When an e-mail is from you, the subject line should pretty much just be ‘from the president, me. I’d mind it less if your subject line emails were, ‘Give me money.’”
New potential conspiracy theory: Obama isn’t a secret Kenyan, but a secret Nigerian. His email spamming for money is proof. Run with it, wingnuts! You’re welcome.
Additionally, the Daily Show‘s segments last night on GSA spending were pretty damn good…
