Text messaging is the new trend in well-run campaigns; collect a cell phone number and a campaign can get in touch with volunteers, donors and, eventually, voters.
But some advice: Dont buy your text messaging service on the cheap. If you do, you may share your service with ads for local bars, dating services or other establishments that may not square with your image.
Hence the snickers when a political operative recently received a text message from the campaign of Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), he of Deborah Jeane Palfrey fame. Vitters camp went with a cheap service, and his message included an ad for ... what else? A dating service.
Is it true love? asks the ad. The accompanying link guides users to a website where they can find out if their crush feels the same way about them; were told David and Deborah is a match.
ITK texted the amorous senators campaign as well, hoping to find true love. Instead, we received no comment.
