    Of course this e-mail makes it clear that a program is evaluating your giving and a program is sending out the e-mail. You’d think a human review would show that “Jammie Wearingfool” is an unlikely name and a quick Web search would show that you’re opposed to Obama and his agenda.
    But there are probably similar events going on in the Republican campaing.
