CHICAGO (CBS) – I’m going home tonight to pack my bag for a few days out of the office, off my computer, out of the reach of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama and their fundraisers – their voracious, ravenous, gluttonous fundraisers asking for money, reaching for $1 billion in campaign cash.

Every day on my computer, sometimes many time a day, the Obama campaign is trying to sell Obama calendars or sweatshirts or wine glasses. Give us money – $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 – by credit card.

“Walter, enter our contest. Give $3. Donate $5 for a chance to join me for dinner. Maybe I’ll get to thank you in person, Barack.”

“Hope to see you soon, Michelle.”

Okay, okay, I surrender. Okay, I’ll send you $10, or $50 or $100. Anything, but please don’t follow me out of the office. Please, leave me alone.
