Just got another email from Jeremy Bird BarackObama.com:

______ --

On Sunday, April 25th, we're holding a 2010 Camp OFA Training in Pittsburgh, and I hope you can join.

If you've ever wondered what the most effective ways are to talk to voters, how you can organize events to make the biggest difference in your community, or you just want to learn more about taking on a bigger role in fighting for change -- then Camp OFA is for you.

We'll give you all the skills you'll need to be a more effective organizer -- and then we'll discuss how we'll put those skills into action this year: fighting for allies of the President in the midterm elections this fall, enacting real Wall Street reform, pushing forward a clean-energy economy, and much more.

Please RSVP to attend the Camp OFA training session in Pittsburgh. Here are the details:

blah... blah... blah...

Now, is it overreacting to call this creepy? Seriously, I would have objected to the phrase "fighting for allies of the President" no matter who was in the White House. That's not how it's supposed to work. The executive and legislative branches are equal and separate for good reasons, and the folks we elect to Congress are supposed to be our allies.

This administration and its legions seem more cult-like every day.

I may just go. Know your enemy, and all that...

(Note to self: Pass on the refreshments - don't drink the kool-aid.)

We should get a local patriot to sit in and see what's what. I have to say, Scratcher, that I see your head exploding about 30 minutes into the whole thing.

I am not 100 percent sure, but I think they're doing one in West Virginia, too.

Freaky. Just totally freaky.
