From the “Almost Too Good to Be True” Department…
The New York Daily News is reporting that Hillary Clinton is trying to pay off the massive debt she incurred while running for President last year. So some of her friends have come up with a scheme whereby you can help her pay it off! It’s a raffle, and for a mere five- or ten-dollar (or more) contribution, you could win one of the following “prizes”:
A trip to LA to see the final version of American Idol
Attend the American Idol season finale
You and a guest will watch live as the American Idol judges make their final comments and decisions on this year’s most anticipated season finale!
A trip to Washington DC
Spend a weekend in Washington, D.C. with James Carville and Paul Begala
We’ll fly you to our nation’s capital for a politically filled weekend to see the nation’s capitol and spend time with James Carville and Paul Begala – two of this city’s best political gurus.
A date with Bill Clinton (yes, really)
Spend a day with President Clinton in New York City
A truly once in a lifetime chance: you and a guest will spend a day with President Clinton and a weekend of fun filled adventure in New York.
Honestly, where do people come up with this stuff? Who in their right mind sat down and thought these were good ideas?
Clearly they’re expecting some big spenders to pony up. But what if I were to tell you that you could enter this wonderful contest without spending a single dime? Would you enter? You would, wouldn’t you! It’s true. Way down at the bottom of the CONTRIBUTE website, there’s small link that allows you to enter without donating a cent. How’s that for “no purchase necessary”?
Readers, here’s your assignment: Go to this link and enter. It looks like you can enter as many times as you’d like.
Of course, there is a downside. For one, what if you win? Eww. For another, your name and email address will be on Hillary’s list so you’ll be getting mail and email from Hillary, Bill, and probably Obama as well. On the other hand, that could be kind of fun. No telling what kind of entertainment there is to be had from some of the mailings you’ll get.
Please. Vote early and vote often. And make sure your friends do too–let’s win this contest!
