Burn for Obama

posted by on October 6 at 10:41 AM

The movie: Burn After Reading by the Coen Brothers.

Burn After Reading is an astute, brutal comedy about infidelity, modern idiocy, paranoia, and the CIA. Set to thundering action-movie drums, the characters brew immense tempests over the most mundane nonsense.

The price: $25 cash.

The reason: Fundraiser for Obama’s swing-state campaigns.

In 2004, George W. Bush won both Florida and Virginia, beating John Kerry by 8 points in Virginia. That state has gone to the Republican Party in every election since 1964, when Lyndon Johnson won and carried all but six states.

The amenities: Drinks, snacks, on-site childcare.


The details: This Thursday, October 9 at 6 pm at Columbia City Cinema. (Movie begins at 7 pm, call 276-5476 with questions.)

The organizer: The famous and historic Sarah Rudinoff.

If Virginia has gone consistently Republican for 40 years, what exactly makes it a swing state?

Because it's swinging for Obama this year—he has a chance to win it.

@1 - because it's 20 points for Obama, that's what.

Blue TIDAL Wave.

Feel it.
