Ann Althouse posted the text of an email she got from Michelle Obama's robo-emailer that suggest Ann give up a pizza dinner to give the money to Barack instead. Thus robo-mailed Ms. President:

That is the commitment that drives this campaign.
If you can support Barack with a donation today, please know it makes a huge difference.The comments are hilarious below Ann's post. I ripped off the title of this post from commenter Alan Markus, who snarked, "She could have signed her name 'Moochelle'."
This is good, too:

P.S. -- It meant a lot to me to speak with you and everyone else last night. Thank you for everything you do.Everything? is Ann's incredulous response. Among commenters, the email's thank you for everything line got a lot of pushback. My fave:

Feels like a pizza night at our house tonight! And when the delivery guy arrives, I will tell him, "Thank you for everything you do."
