When Marco Rubio put his staff up for adoption …

After eight emails begging supporters — as well as the media who covers his campaign — for money on the eve of the third-quarter FEC filing deadline, the Marco Rubio presidential campaign took its desperation to a new level by offering an “Adopt a Staffer for the Day” (CLICK HERE to see the webpage) option in the Marco for President online store.

The Gif Shop LogoFor the completely reasonable donation of $250, you can adopt a Marco for President staffer for a day. The adoption includes recognition on Twitter and the campaign website, an update from the staffer you’ve adopted, and a postcard. Best of all, there’s free shipping!

Now, if you’re looking for a Sally Struthers Christian Children’s Fund reference, The .Gif Shop staff says you’re out of luck (CLICK HERE if you miss the reference). So, they’re going to give you the next best thing. CLICK HERE and leave Sarah McLachlin playing in the background while you take a trip back in time to when Josh Lyman, Toby Ziegler, CJ Cregg, Donna Moss, and President Josiah Bartlet were roaming the halls of the West Wing of the White House.

Enjoy!
