Of course, the celebrities given lame titles within the Obama re-election campaign aren’t exactly A-Listers, but that’s to be expected: with gas prices like these, Brad and Angelina can’t get their private jet to the Beltway as easily anymore.
Still, I’ll give Obama credit; he lures in the chesty broads and the wannabe stoners.
Eva Longoria and Kal Penn will serve as national co-chairs of the president’s re-election campaign. They will join dozens of other co-chairs to “serve as ambassadors for the President, advise the campaign on key issues, and help engage and mobilize voters in all 50 states.” Other co-chairs include former Obama chiefs of staff Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley, MA governor Deval Patrick, and L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
Jim Messina, the Obama campaign’s manager, said that the newly appointed co-chairs “will be tremendous assets on the ground as we build the biggest grassroots campaign in history.”
Sadly, Jimmy doesn’t even know what the term “grassroots” means. A campaign program based on celebrities and former Obama staffers is not “grassroots;” it’s a choreographed public relations stunt.
