Have they got a great gift idea for you…
In a mass-distributed email sent this morning, Attorney General Rob McKenna‘s campaign has come up with a “surprise” gift idea for the 2012 gubernatorial candidate’s upcoming birthday.
And, the campaign has recruited the candidate’s wife, Marilyn McKenna, to personally tell you all about it.
“Friends, I want to share a secret with you. Rob’s birthday is this Saturday, and I’m hoping you’ll join me in creating a birthday surprise for him.”
Washington’s would-be First Lady goes on to note:
I know Rob wants nothing more than to serve Washington in the best way he can, as our state’s next Governor. I hope you can help – and, at the same time, give Rob a special birthday present from all of us.
Donate $49 or more by this Friday, at midnight, to help us surprise Rob on his 49th birthday Saturday morning with another great fundraising month.
Gee, wonder if Rob has any inkling about his big birthday surprise?
Not to be outdone, the folks over at @McKenna4Gov — a spoof Twitter account that purportedly comes from “The Real Rob McKenna” — blasted out the following birthday-related tweets within the hour that the real campaign’s cash-ask went out:
My birthday is this Saturday. I’m going to start posting ideas of gifts you can give me. Just in-kind them to my campaign. #wagov
My birthday is this Saturday. Present idea: A dvd of the Notebook. That movie always makes me cry.
