New Low in Political Discourse: The Obama Event Registry Bests George Costanza's "Human Fund" in Awfulness


Not content with raising hundreds of milions of dollars from his super-wealthy friends, President Barack Obama is now stealing from the pockets of birthday boys and girls, newlyweds, folks celebrating anniversaries, recent graduates, and (we assume) anyone else with something to celebrate.

Ladies and gentleman, you avatar for hope and (loose) change is now hitting you up thusly:

Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?

Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It's a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it's a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.

Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy—so get started today.
