President Obama has officially filed the paperwork for his 2012 reelection bid, as you may have been notified by email, text, tweet, second email, carrier pigeon, secret government brainwave transmission, and so on. The announcements comes with this video of campaign supporters urging you to begin constant grassroots organizing efforts, immediately. The campaign website asks "Are you in?" and urges you to "Get In with Facebook."

The president is also demanding one billion dollars. Apparently that's how much it costs to prove to the American people that you're better than Mike Huckabee. You can make out your check to that new campaign manager who hates liberal activists.

Need anything else, Mr. President? Perhaps a bag of potato chips to go along with your one billion dollars and 19 months of volunteer campaign work? Please, don't answer that!
