Re: Re: Hey
I'm not sure I understand the logic of Michelle Obama sending out fundraising e-mails with "Re: Hey" as the subject field. (Lest there be any uncertainty, I don't know Michelle Obama, I've never sent her an e-mail in my life, and if one day I were to contact her with a message that boiled to down to, "Hey", I seriously doubt she'd reply.)
Everyone knows that these campaign mailings amount to spam, but calling attention to that fact by using one of the most repugnant spamming techniques known to humankind seems to reflect not only bad judgment but bad taste. Especially for a candidate promising to change the way we practice politics.
