Now this is how you rally voters. From today's New York Times piece on Obama organizer Rory Steele:
On the Fourth of July, [Steele] vowed to have himself tattooed with theinitials of whoever turned in the most signed supporter cards. DelaneAdams, a campaign organizer from Chicago, won by submitting 33.
Soon Mr. Steele’s right bicep, just below a Marine Corps tattoo, isanother work of art: "DA 33 July 4." ("I thought it would have beenweird to tattoo "Obama" on my arm," he said, "but now I have somedude’s initials on me.")
Imagine the fundraising possibilities. Who wouldn't pay for some real estate on Hillary's ankle?
