I was surprised to check my inbox and see an email from Dorothy Rodham, Hillary Clinton's mother. (Dorothy usually texts me or hits me up on instant messenger.) It was a friendly message suggesting a wonderful Christmas present: Buy a signed copy of Hillary's book for the low, low price of $250! Not only would I be getting the perfect gift but I'd also be helping to pay down Hillary's debt! Check out this e-mail with the smoking deal:
I'm so proud of everything my daughter has accomplished and excited about what her
Her life is full of amazing achievements, and her story has inspired millions of
people, especially young girls, to achieve their dreams, no matter what they are.
There's a wonderful book about her life I'd like to share with you. It's called
Hillary Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight, and it is the perfect way to share my
daughter's story with a child you want to inspire.
As you know, Hillary is still working hard to pay down the debt from her campaign,
and I hope you'll take this opportunity to help her out. With your contribution of
$50, you will receive a copy of Dreams Taking Flight with a specially designed
Hillary Clinton bookplate.
And for that special person in your life, with a contribution of $250 or more, you
will receive a book that's personally signed by Hillary to him or her by name.
Contribute to help pay down Hillary's debt, and we'll send you a copy of Hillary
Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight.
I know you're just as proud as I am of everything my daughter has achieved, and I
want to thank you for everything you've done to support her!
Me again. How sad is it that the Secretary of State to be is so hard up for cash she's hitting up poor newspaper reporters for donations to fund he failed presidential bid? It's the least I could do to take out a third mortgage so I can buy 10 of these. I'll get right on that.
