"All New York Times Activities Now Obama-Related"

That is the title of this Gawker post. The following is the post. Keep in mind. I'm not writing this:

Attention, New York Times employees: Form an orderly line and prepare to walk up to 66th street to hear your colleagues discuss their quickie Obama book.

Oh! And we know what you should wear:

You are invited to a Book Signing and Discussion for
Obama: The Historic JourneyThursday, February 19 at 7:30 p.m.at Barnes & Noble at 66th Street(1972 Broadway - 212.595.6859)
The discussion will feature:

JILL ABRAMSON, Managing Editor
MICHAEL POWELL, Metro Reporter
DAMON WINTER, Photographer
JODI KANTOR, Washington Correspondent

Want to buy the book? Times employees are eligible for a 25% discount through The Times's Store.

Can you imagine if this was all for Pres. George W. Bush? That's all we're saying.

All I can say is that the Gawker is used to celebrity cult creepiness and this is getting to them too.
