Going to Inauguration

"The Presidential Inaugural Committee
requests the honor of your presence
to attend and participate
in the
Inauguration of
Barack H. Obama
as President of the United States of America
Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
as Vice President of the United States of America
on Tuesday, the twentienth of January
two thousand and nine
in the City of Washington"


I got that in the mail today...

I'm going to Inauguration...

or so I thought. While I was looking for my actual tickets in the package I read the second page of the official stamped mailing from the President-Elect 'nem and it says "we're pleased to offer some innovative new ways for you to participate alongside your fellow Americans."

Um... I don't need innovation. I need tickets.

This is just as bad as the e-mail they sent saying "Your Ticket to Inauguration." I swear it looked JUST like the ticket to Grant Park (which was the real deal), but then it asked me to donate for a "chance" to go.

Obama's people are dream sellers, for real.

HA! The same thing happened to Him earlier today. I'm so sorry Obama is playing with your heart like this.
