It wouldn't be pretty, I tell you what.
Whether or not your mom's on Twitter, here's something guaranteed to make her smile on Sunday: getting a personal shout-out from President Obama.
From now until Thursday at midnight, you have a chance to win that for your mom or a special mother in your life—just get five or more donations to your grassroots fundraising page to automatically put yourself in the running. (If you don’t have a page, you can set one up here.)
That's right: If your name is drawn, the President will send your mom a special Mother's Day tweet from @BarackObama. With more than 15 million people following him on Twitter, she'll be honored in front of a pretty wide audience.
Even if your mom doesn't have an account, she'll still be getting a personal note from the President of the United States, thanking her for doing all the hard work that goes into being a mother.
Wow. What tells a mother you love her more than anything in the world than engaging in grassroots fundraising for Barack Obama and maybe - maybe - winning his "shout out" to Mom among the hundreds (if not thousands) of tweets
his cronies he personally sends out to the twittersphere each day?
