Over the weekend, The New York Times (yes, that New York Times) reported that Organizing for Action, Obama’s rebooted campaign arm, has been selling White House access to donors who pledge at least $500,000. And, when confronted about the report today, simpering Press Secretary Jay Carney insisted that OFA is just an “independent organization”:

Right. An “independent organization” that — purely coincidentally, of course — runs the official @BarackObama Twitter account:

Hey Jay, that painful burning sensation you’re feeling? Your pants are on fire.

Needless to say, many Twitterers are a bit puzzled:


Sort of, yeah.

Isn’t it? But wait — there’s more! Here’s L.A. Times reporter Matea Gold:

OFA’s also tied to BarackObama.com:

Move along, folks.

Nothing to see here.


The initial version of this post mistakenly called OFA Obama’s “campaign arm.” Obama for America became Organizing for Action after the election ended. Accordingly, we changed our description to “Obama’s rebooted campaign arm.” We regret the error.

    Clown Jay Carney blew up a ballon and made a giraffe out of it while making the statement.

        Then he pulled a quarter out of Chris Mathews ear.

          And Chris subsequently dug out his eardrum trying to get more.

            … and Carney rides out of the press room on one of those tiny bicycles.

            I’m actually a bit dissapointed, thought he drove back to clown college in an Obama Motors Solyndra Powered Solar Paneled Electric Car . . . .( . . . and 72 of his carpooling proteges exited after him!-)

          He should have yanked out Chris’s brain tumor while he was at it.

    Jay forgot everyone can still see the internet…so far.

    • TocksNedlog

      He didn’t forget.

      He just doesn’t care.

    Hey, Carney, can ya see the pyramids? You are standin’ chin-deep in De-Nile!

  • Michelle

    I look forward to the day when Jay Carney will speak from that podium and not tell a lie even if I’m certain I stand a better chance of seeing a purple unicorn.

    OFA = Obama F***ing America

  • Maxx

    For the love of God, who is he kidding? These two might as well be a ventriloquist act with Obama’s hand planted up Carney’s…..

    There isn’t a democrat, liberal or leftist in America independent of Barack Obama.

    Obama is not the first Socialist Progressive charlatan to occupy the Oral Office,
    although he IS the worst.
