The 2016 presidential election is pretty much brand-spanking new, but I think we already have a winner for the creepiest personalized email blast by a politician.
Yesterday or the day before I received a fundraising email from Rand Paul. I have NO IDEA how I ended up on his email list. I’m more likely to donate to Scientology than I am to donate to him. (And I’m not donating to Scientology.) (Well, maybe if they were to give me an interview with Tom Cruise or John Travolta where I was allowed to ask them anything I wanted. That might be worth a donation.)
So I just marked it spam and went on with my day.
Today I received an unintentionally funny email from “Alexandra” with the subject “Re: Amy’s donation,” asking “Is everything ok?”
You see, Rand asked her to email me. He’s worried about me. Because he sent me an email and I didn’t immediately send him money.
(Warning: There’s an apostrophe in there that shouldn’t be. I can’t vote for someone who doesn’t know how to use an apostrophe.)
So, last night I responded with this:
I’ve never liked Rand Paul. He’s always come off as a condescending ass, and it seems to be getting worse.
Plus, he has Ramen Noodle hair. It’s just not presidential.
1:55 in this video is telling. And it’s why I would never ever vote for him. He’s basically saying that his opinion changed because when he stated the first opinion he wasn’t running for office. OK. Your words Rand, not mine.
