So just for kicks, I created a login on the RNC web site under the pretense of hosting a crazy GOP House Party. Here’s the e-mail message I received after I completed the registration:

Welcome to the GOP Team! GOP Team Members are empowered to share the Party’s message with friends, neighbors, elected officials and the media as well as garner support for candidates and the President’s and our Party’s agenda.

Stay tuned– we’ll be in touch shortly. With your help, we’ll bring new faces and new voices into the Republican Party and maintain our majority for years to come.

Awesome. I’m “empowered to share the Party’s message”.

For some reason, though, seeing Party capitalized like that makes me think of the Communist Party, and suddenly I feel like I’m the propaganda minister for Red China or something. Now I have to go wash my hands.
