And Now I Feel Guilty

I got this e-mail last night from our Dear Leader:

"Brad --

I'm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.

We just made history.

And I don't want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign -- every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it's time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I'll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing...

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,


Please donate"

And now I feel guilty, because I didn't knock on doors, or make a donation, or talk to friends, family, or neighbors about why they should support Barack Obama. In fact, I didn't even vote for Obama. And here I am getting the praise - a personal e-mail, even - for all the hard work I did.

I can't just sit by and take that unmerited praise; I need to send Comrade Obama an e-mail and apologize.

Gosh. I just feel awful.
