You knew it would happen eventually, but so soon?
It took only one week for a partisan group in this case the Democratic Party to turn the terror bombings in Boston into a crass political ploy.
Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was behind this tasteless tactic, sending out an email and tweet asking people to sign a supposed thank you note to the first responders. That would be nice except for the fact that in order to sign the note, you have to give the Democratic party your email account and ZIP code.
Well collect every note we get and deliver them to Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino so they can pass along your sentiments, Wasserman Schultz writes.
But thats not all theyre collecting.
This is a classic data mining technique that candidates and political organizations use to target voters to raise money. The thank you note even includes a disclaimer saying the DNC can use the information they get for any political purposes or even advertising.
Pretty clear, right? Not

We’re calling 15 or 17 years “classic”, now?
I’ll remember to tell my girlfriend that, Friday night.
