Annoying political emails →
[More:]A friend I have known since junior high sent me an email the other day that said something like:
"Pictures of Obama's family NO JOKE!"
Enclosed in the email were several family photos of Obama's family along with a few lines of racist, mean-spirited, false bullshit.
I fired off a reply that said something like:
"I'm not sure what this email is trying to say. That Obama's family is black? Shocker! This email is mean-spirited, racist, and contains false information. What a turn-off."
I thought that would be the end of it, but today I get this:
YOU MUST WATCH THIS IF YOU HAVE ANY INTENTION OF VOTING FOR OBAMA OR IF YOU KNOW OF ANYONE WHO IS ! ! !
WHAT TRUE AMERICAN WOULD EVEN CONSIDER HIM FOR OUR LEADER?????
I am so tempted to say something like:
"I get it. You're voting for the white candidate. I'm voting for the best candidate."
I don't want to be sarcastic though because it could be easily dismissed as sour grapes. I'm thinking of just ignoring it, but it still pisses me off.
The kicker is the person that originally sent it to her was perceived by me as half-way intelligent. I guess not. It's amazing what you find out about people.
