Politicians using the web

November 1, 2006

I opened up my e-mail this morning and promptly got a spam message from Chuck Poochigian’s Attorney General campaign. Not only did they probably buy my e-mail address from some less-than-desirable source, the e-mail is part of a smear campaign on the opponent. I don’t know if the claims in the article are true – and it doesn’t really matter to me. What matters is the fact that they decided to send me this message. (I will admit that their URL is hilarious though: pooch4ag πŸ˜€ )

I guess in all reality, they probably don’t care how I’m going to vote. After all, I’m probably in the minority. I have to assume their target market is busy buying some v1agara and discovering some amazing diet pills πŸ˜›

I heard a session of Forum the other day with Mr. Poochigian talking about the issues he stands for but I don’t really remember what he said. So we can figure he probably had a 50/50 shot with me. Now there’s no way I’m going to vote for this guy. Who’s running his PR? They should be fired.

    Another reason not to vote for pachoogian? He is a complete buffoon bragging out his MySpace friends, but not even realizing they were mostly bands, fakes, and predators.

  2. there was a dude back at the university of michigan who would run for student government every year, and would run a program on his computers to spam the entire directory of students.

    every year he would win.

    the first time, i wrote him back, asking him to stop spamming me, and telling him that i wouldn’t vote for him because of it. he wrote me back the day after he won the election, saying “it doesn’t matter, the spam worked and i won”.

    oh well.

    Hi Adam, perhaps you should’ve written a program to spam everyone again and tell them not to vote for the guy. Spam engine flame war? πŸ˜€
