'President Obama celebrates his 49th birthday in two days, and OFA supporters are getting ready to mark the occasion. They're hosting birthday parties in community centers, coffee shops, and their homes, celebrating our accomplishments and helping recruit new volunteers. This fall, we need to get as many of the 15 million first time voters as possible back to the polls. So this Wednesday, will you join us to celebrate the President's birthday?'
While the birthday celebration is obviously just a front to get their ground game going before November, at the same time there's something vaguely creepy about acknowledging the President's birthday like this. Not quite chanting-schoolchildren creepy, but it's somewhere in the vicinity.
I sadly had to regret lest I miss the radio show.
