This sort of manufactured controversy drives me crazy.
Apparently right-wing wackaloons are apoplectic because the Obama administration is encouraging people to send them the delusional emails they receive. (The administration “says” they are only asking for the emails so they can defuse ginned up “controversies.”)
Why are the crazies so mad?
Because Obama might be making a seekrit “ENEMEEZ LIST.”
This is news?
Yes, wackaloonz, it’s true: IF YOU SEND SOMEONE AN EMAIL, THEY HAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. They know who you are, and they can send your email along to anyone else. So whether you’re seekritly plotting to overthrow the guvmint, or you don’t want your wife to find out about your Argentinian mistress, or you just don’t want people to know your political views, DON’T BROADCAST IT ON EMAIL!
That is all.
