Obama Asks Supporters: Can You Spare Another $10 To Spread The Wealth Around?

This is getting ridiculous. Obama has already raised a record $605 million in campaign donations, and now he has the audacity to hope each of his supporters will shell out another $10, as the LA Times blog reports:

Having hauled in a record $208,333 every hour of every day last month -- $150 million in all -- plus a few more unreported millions so far this month, Barack Obama is worried that he might come up short in the political money war with the John McCain-Sarah Palin ticket.

Just to relieve himself of that $150 million before the polls open, Obama will have to spend $12.5 million a day.

But he needs some more.

And, according to an e-mail plea to supporters, tonight's the absolute deadline to donate $10 more and receive your special edition Official Obama-Biden car magnet.

This is just a preview of the nickle-and-diming to come if Obama is elected president -- only the "change" (Obamaspeak for "increase") in Americans' tax bill will far more than merely nickles and dimes, or even ten-dollar bills.
