Call it an offbeat campaign tactic if you will. I can’t recall the last time I heard a political candidate say his followers ought to take a day off from work.
But that is the case with Barack Obama. The Democratic Party’s nomination for president sent out an e-mail Monday to his followers (of which I became one when I signed up to get his official V-P choice) urging them to not go to work or school come Nov. 4.
INSTEAD, HE WANTS people to work at actually getting people to vote for him, either outside a polling place or working the telephones.
So how long until GOP operatives start mocking this plea by claiming Obama is trying to create (http://my.barackobama.com/page/s/dayoff) a holiday in his image?
