The Obama campaign has been having trouble settling on a slogan for a quite a while, but all this time “Obama 2012: In Lieu of Flowers” was staring them right in the face.

This election could be close — a couple of reception Cuisinarts, a baby shower Diaper Genie and somebody’s $20 birthday check from grandma could make all the difference — and Team Obama is mobilizing to win on that front:

What woman doesn’t want her wedding shower invitation to contain the phrase “the bride is registered at Obamacare, Solyndra & Beyond”?

I think they borrowed this general idea from Dennis Kucinich, whose main fundraising tactic when he ran for president was to go from table to table at wedding receptions and say “You gonna finish that sandwich?”

Coming soon from the Obama campaign: “Don’t forget to update your will to give what’s left of your estate (if anything) to Obama/Biden 2012. Accidents can happen!”

Twitchy has a lot more Obama campaign fundraising suggestions here.

Oh, and speaking of “in lieu of flowers,” two can play that game.
