The ‘Net ATM

McClatchy had this as their lead story, Obama calls on his Internet campaign army to march again.

It’s an e-mail campaign to all of the volunteers explaining all of the opportunities to continue to provide service to the Obama political machine as it marches forward. Then at the end you see the real reason for the e-mail:

Blogiversary™
