When Barack Obama has dinner with George Soros’ $60,000, Barack Obama Really Listens
The Romans had a very useful saying: Res ipsa loquitur, “the thing speaks for itself.” We received the following unsolicited fundraising E-mail from David Ploufe at BarackObama.com, followed by an E-mail signed by Barack Obama.

Most political fundraisers are hosted by lobbyists and filled with representatives of special interests. But our campaign is different.
Our funding comes from a movement of Americans giving whatever they can afford, even $5, and Barack wants to sit down with supporters like you.
…Our movement is changing the way campaigns are funded. We’re not taking any contributions from Washington lobbyists or political action committees. More than 100,000 individual donors have demonstrated that this choice is about more than an election. It’s about each of us having a personal stake in the future of American politics.
The dinner for five is an opportunity for you to sit down with Barack and your fellow supporters and talk about what matters to you.
Get the kind of treatment other politicians reserve for special interests. Make a donation in the next week, and you could share your story and your ideas with Barack in person…
