Brilliant. Great job from the folks at Pajamas Media.
Several times here at America’s Right I’ve commented on how the Republican Party, besides needing desperately to go back to conservative roots, needs to bridge a technological gap in order to keep up with the Democrats. To demonstrate that point, on one or two occasions I’ve told the story about how, on election day last year, I discovered and was fooling around with a revolutionary free iPhone application called “Obama ’08″ which essentially turned ordinary cellphones into campaign phone banks, only to have a robotic Rudy Giuliani call my house ten minutes before polls closed to tell me how important voting was in Pennsylvania (I had already voted, of course).
Slowly but surely, I think the GOP is closing the distance. As a guy who runs a conservative Web site of only moderate size and minimal influence, I can say firsthand that I’ve been blown away by new efforts at outreach from GOP congressmen and senators. Heck, Republicans are even “winning” against Democrats on Twitter.
While I am certainly not okay with the pervasive nature of Barack Obama’s “O” symbol, there is something to be admired in terms of its design for the way the cultish left has taken to it, just like there is much to be admired about Obama’s efficient campaign machine. Come this fall, campaign offices will once again smell of fresh-brewed coffee and a steady helping of bullcrap (always on tap), as the race for the 2010 mid-term elections will be officially under way. People like you and like me can do our part to hasten the GOP’s closure of the technological outreach gap — get in touch with your congressman or your favorite candidate and ask what you can do.
