The election may have been a month ago, but the Obama campaign’s fund raising machine keeps humming. I just received this compelling email offer:
This holiday season, celebrate the historic accomplishment of our movement for change. Treat yourself or a loved one to a limited edition Obama coffee mug.
Make a donation of $15 or more right now and get an official Obama mug to mark an amazing year.
Items purchased by December 15th are guaranteed to be delivered before December 25th.
When you make your donation, you’ll be supporting the Democratic National Committee. The resources they invested in the 50-state organizing strategy made this movement possible — help us build for future victories together.
Share this amazing moment with your friends and family. Thanks to supporters like you, we all have the opportunity to bring real change to America.

Doesn’t that make you feel all warm inside, like a hope latte with an extra shot of change? It’s a handsome item, to be sure, but I’m going to have to pass. There’s no room in my cupboard for another mug. NPR and its affiliates are already taking up all available space.
And besides, I just got a brand new mug from a really nice southern guy. I just can’t say no to a drawl.
