I just got this email from my congressman. Well, if you look at the fine print, you’ll notice that it’s actually from his newsletter. The only way to provide your opinion was to sign up for his newsletter. Because he’s using the possibility of Russian interference in our election to sign people up for his newsletter apparently. The email was so spammy that Yahoo asked me if I was sure I wanted to follow the link before taking me to the webpage. I mean, I get that a political crisis like this is a chance to sign people up for your newsletter and all, but what the actual fuck is wrong with this man? Says a lot about the quality of people who are running the country and how seriously they take their jobs.
I’ve blocked out his name simply because I would rather not have my approximate location out on the internet. But he’s a Democrat, for the record. I clicked the link to try and confirm if it was really from him, but all that did was automatically sign me up for the newsletter. We are living in loony-tunes land.
