Please, President Obama, stop inviting us to dinner!

Be sure to read Walter Kirn’s delightful screed against those excruciatingly personal campaign emails and the lottery invites for dinner with celebrities that come with them. And it’s not just the Obama camp:

Tagg Romney sent me a note the other morning that opened with an encomium to fatherhood, the holiest of conservative institutions next to the debt and equity markets themselves (“Dad taught us a lot of lessons, including the importance of having fun as a family, but the most important lesson he imparted to us was the joy in helping others”), and closed with an invitation to wager five bucks on a chance to rub shoulders with his “Papa,” a famously tight-fisted, high-stakes gambler who’d never take such lousy odds himself, not even if tickets were a penny a pop. The deal stirred doubts in me about Tagg’s upbringing as well as contempt for his estimation of mine.

Along the same lines, the new Obama event registry troubles William Nomikos.
