Political Rants

Really, It’s not what you think

As the presidential campaign enters its frantic final weeks with the outcome still in doubt, the amount of mail I’m getting from both campaigns continues at a steady pace. That’s right, I said both campaigns. With all the new data-mining tools that politicians are now using to precisely target their appeals, it’s a little surprising that both sides consider me a likely target. They probably don’t really care about my vote. Kentucky is such a strongly red state that they don’t waste time trying to pick up a few more votes here. But they still think there might be money in these here hills, and both sides think they have a shot at squeezing it some of it out of me.
