Just plain creepy and desperate.
The Obama campaign has ramped up its email microtargeting efforts, sending messages asking supporters on its email list to contact specific individuals in states with early voting to remind them to vote.
The algorithm for identifying potential Obama voters in swing states is far from perfect.
In an email shared with POLITICO, for example, the Obama campaign asked Soren Dayton, a former John McCain campaign staffer (who had signed up to the campaign’s email list and authorized it to access his Facebook account), to contact a self-described conservative-libertarian blogger based in Nevada.
But it’s the logical culmination of campaign email programs and social networking. The New York Times reported last week that campaigns have been testing whether personal contact from an acquaintance is more effective than from a unknown campaign volunteer.
The tool works in conjunction with Facebook — and suggestions of what voter to contact are only generated only after supporters give the campaign permission to access a list of their Facebook friends.

I blame the Union thugs for this shooting.
This is a poster, created by union goons, is surely to blame for the killings.
The Washington Post reports:
PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — A shootout in front of a Walmart in Washington state left two people dead and two sheriff’s deputies wounded Sunday afternoon, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
One of the dead was a man who shot at deputies, said Scott Wilson of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. The other victim was a young woman who died after she was taken to a Tacoma hospital, he said.
Tacoma police said the deputies were both shot in the torso and were in satisfactory condition. They were being kept overnight at Tacoma General Hospital.
Details were still sketchy Sunday night, but the sheriff’s office received a call about a suspicious person at the store in Port Orchard, Wilson said. The man ran and started shooting when three deputies tried to talk to him, he said.
The deputies, including the two men who were wounded, returned fire, Wilson said.
Destany Droge, 22, of Bremerton, and Emmili Jones, of Federal Way, 20, told The Seattle Times that they noticed two deputies confronting a heavyset man in the parking log. The man, they said, took off running toward a wooded area. Then, in midsprint, he pulled out a gun and fired behind his back without turning.
Where is the media when a real link and political rhetoric causes death? Isn’t it fun to spin the truth with no facts. I do not know if this is linked to the above union poster, but then again, i’m not a paid journalist. Unions have been ‘targeting‘ WalMart executives and I blame them for these deaths.
Maybe this nutjob got the two Washington’s mixed up?
