Great, now I get Political Spam

I just received an email message from someone (supposedly) by the email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. The message in the email was a multi-page tirade about the Iraq war, the evils of America, the corruption of the Bush Administration, and the damage the Freemasons and Zionists have done to the “Citizens of the World.”
I skimmed the message and quickly determined that it was just the usual cook conspiracy garbage – Dick Cheney & Halliburton, economies of the world are ruled by Jewish bankers, and a new one – Did you know that Woodrow Wilson’s presidential campaign was paid for by Rothschild’s? I attempted to reply to the email message, but I was not surprised to find that the email address bounces back as undeliverable.
Of course, the sender of the email message requested that I post the message in my blog and on newsgroups across the Internet so the truth would be available to the “Citizens of the World.” The real purpose is to provide credibility to the numerous links to pseudo-news websites around the world and help elevate their status in search engine results. Its a scam – but a scam with a political purpose.
It is no big secret that I lean to the right politically, but this kind of garbage doesn’t do anyone any good. Remember all of conspiracy theories about Bill Clinton and the Vince Foster suicide? I mean seriously… If you don’t like a guy don’t elect him. Its that simple. If you don’t vote, then don’t complain.
