I wish John Kerry would get out of my pocketbook!!!
Geeze! I get an email from him at least once a week and it is always asking for money. Today it's for a Massachusetts charity that I have never heard of but he's doing a fundraising bike ride for. I'm in New Hampshire and I'm on his mailing list because I supported him in 2004. Why should he use his political mailing list to raise money for his pet projects? I find it really annoying. Well, I guess I'm just a mean old lady!

1. Me too, I thought John Kerry ended with a hugh surplus of unspent
...contributions from the 2004 campaign, like over $2.0 million!

2. He's Not In Your Pocketbook. You Can Also Unsubscribe To The Emails.
Since you ain't sendin him money, I fail to see how he's in your pocketbook. As far as your annoyance with the email goes, unsubscribe to them. Simple as that.

3. It's called mass marketing, I don't think John Kerry invented it
You get on an e-mail list, they send you solicitations. If you aren't interested you ignore it. What's your beef with getting an e-mail? Seems a rather noninvasive fund-raising technique to me.

6. Ah, I know what it's called. I did not opt onto a "mass marketing"
email list. I opted onto a Presidential candidate's email list. I don't like getting junk email anymore than I like getting junk mail.

7. Okay
If e-mails from John Kerry were all I had to worry about I would be in pretty good shape. But you obviously have the right to be mad about anything you want. Personally if I felt that strongly about it I would just filter out the e-mails.
