Comms from the RNC...IMC

Today, I got a text mesg on my cell phone and was astounded that it weas from the imc comms network used during the RNC. Since I live in Portland, not NYC, I decided it was time to get off of the list...because I am charged for each text message i get...and let me tell you about the bill I got AFTER the RNC....phew.

Anyway, when I went to delete my number from the list I noticed that they have the entire history available too, I felt that might be a good thing to have up on this site, to be archived with the rest of the kick ass breaking news and such.
