A very special e-mail from the Barack Obama campaign sent straight to my personal e-mail box!
Dear Kevin —
[See! First name basis!]
Barack Obama is about to make one of the most important decisions of this campaign — choosing a running mate.
[What about FISA? Oh…nevermind.]
You have helped build this movement from the bottom up, and Barack wants you to be the first to know his choice.
[Cuz we’re special friends!]
Sign up today to be the first to know:
[Sign up? Couldn’t he just, ya know, tell me?]
[See! He’s MY Barack Obama! Get your own, asshole!]
You will receive an email the moment Barack makes his decision, or you can text VP to 62262 to receive a text message on your mobile phone.
[Awesome! One more thing to interrupt my day!]
Once you’ve signed up, please forward this email to your friends, family, and coworkers to let them know about this special opportunity.
[Oh yes, along with my chain letters and long lists of un-funny jokes. They’ll love that!]
No other campaign has done this before. You can be part of this important moment.
[Seriously, haven’t you heard of Twitter?]
Be the first to know who Barack selects as his running mate.
[I feel so included! So Web 2.0!]
[No, David, thank YOU!]
Obama for America
