The internet department at the DNC is going rogue for this project.

Today is Governor Dean's 60th Birthday and we wanted to do something for Governor Dean that included you, one of the biggest advocates for the 50 state strategy. So here's the deal. If you'd like to send Gov Dean a birthday message leave it as a comment to this post (or if you don't have an account, or want to make it semi-private you can use this form,) and we'll print what your comment and get it to Governor Dean sometime today.

We'll do our best from letting Gov. Dean read Daily Kos today if you promise not to email him or call him (you know who you are). Please don't ruin the surprise.

I don't want to share too many details at the moment, but if you can recommend this diary I'll post some pictures later today.

[Updated] Since there are people self-organizing by state in the comments section. Here's a graphic of the states represented at the moment. We'll update throughout the next few hours.

[Final Update]

Here are the pictures I promised earlier. Thank you all for the birthday wishes, we'll make sure additional comments make it to Governor. All in all we received over 1,000 messages in two and a half hours in several forumns. The fourth picture represent all of the messages you left here, or posted online to our website.

Why in a recycle plastic bin?

Over the last four years Governor Dean has worked to make sure that the DNC is green and recycling bins are "littered" throughout the DNC offices. The bin is signed by many of the staff who've worked for the Governor over the last few years.

Thank you!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
