I got spammed by the Republican party today. Is that something frequent in the US ? I know it's spam because being French and residing in Paris I don't get to vote in California. Besides I wouldn't get my electrons dirty by opting-in on the mailing list of someone who supports chemical CO2 warfare against everyone through the cancelation of the Kyoto protocol.
If it is a trend, I seriously hope it doesn't cross the pond. We get enough junk mail from the FN and other such stuff already.
