OMG! O luvs txtn!
Barack Obama wants all us cool kids to know who his running mate will be before all them grown-ups do. That's why his campaign manager, David Plouffe, sent out a email today saying regular folks can be the first to know. All they have to do is txt "VP" to: 62262 and a message will come down from high. OMG!
Here is part of the message Plouffe wrote last evening:
Barack Obama is about to make one of the most important decisions of this campaign -- choosing a running mate.
You have helped build this movement from the bottom up, and Barack wants you to be the first to know his choice. Sign up today to be the first to know:
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.
Once you've signed up, please forward this email to your friends, family, and coworkers to let them know about this special opportunity.
So there you have it... the Obama team reinvents the modern election with a chain letter. :-p
