There's nothing shadowy about this - it's an extension of what the Obama campaign has been doing since he entered the race. He's building a new Democratic infrastructure, regimenting it under his brand, and enlisting new technologies and more sophisticated voter contacting techniques to turn it from a normal GOTV effort into a lasting movement.
No, nothing shadowy at all. "Regimenting" a "Democratic" infrastructure under Obama's brand... What could go wrong?
I'm with Avedon: "that sinking feeling just won't stop sinking." It's like the whole country is turning into a giant caucus, isn't it?
But then what would I know? I'm a racist.
NOTE: The first thing to go is always the language, isn't it? Always.
