Because nothing says “I’m with the 99 percent-ers” like a Hollywood mogul.
Anyhoo, the intent is clear: Obama 2012 is blowing a dog whistle for the women’s vote. Come and get it!
Twitter users from all parts of the political spectrum mused about dining with President Obama and George Clooney. A few ovaries exploded, Justin Bieber-style:
Do you want to be the meat in an Obama-Clooney sandwich? http://t.co/23kfuCTw

Obama, Clooney, and me? Yes please! I just gave to support the President and was automatically entered to win. Join me: http://t.co/AXlVfXEq

Donate to the Obama campaign to win dinner with George Clooney? One way to court the women's vote….

Obama sent me a message saying if I donate to his campaign, I could win dinner with him at Clooney's house. The things I would say to them.

Um dinner with Obama & Clooney? Throw in Pitt or Cheadle, & you've got yourself a caper movie, for real.

Hmmm. Dinner with Cheadle might be eeen-teresting.
Dinner with Obama and Clooney? Its times like this I wish I was an American.

Well, actually, foreign donors have contributed with ease to Obama’s campaign before.
I can have a night w/Clooney & Obama if I pay them money? Didn't they learn anything from the secret service scandal? http://t.co/9rgy26XD
