Most Misleading (and Disappointing) Email of the Political Season

But at first it seemed like an intriguing way to do damage control. Oh well...

The following was the subject line (and I'm thinking, this is an unexpected political strategy!
Henri's Reserve Boutique French Champagnes are a Luxury Must Have for Summer Parties and Events

Then came the message; but toward the end of the following paragraph, I'm already beginning to think, Too good to be true:

Dear Jackson,

Summer is all about relaxing under the sun, enjoying the outdoors, and hosting fabulous get-togethers with your friends and family. All of the best networking events and mixers take place during the summer when people can dress up, eat delicious food, and drink to their heart's content. The sun-kissed days and warm weather gets everyone ready to socialize and partake in the season's festivities. Whether you are hosting or attending this summer's events and parties, look no further for the perfect Champagne to serve or gift to give. Henri's Reserve offers boutique French family estate Champagnes so delectable and exquisite that it will be the talk of the party leaving lasting impressions....

The "talk of the party," indeed. And yep, I know about those "lasting impressions," as well as Henri's "reserve." (A little irony never hurts.) But, sad to say, the balance of the email reveals it to be just another unsolicited come-on from a commercial vendor, not at all the confidential communication from the big-time news source whose billed "rally" this weekend I missed because of a disabled knee (since somewhat repaired).

Oh well, new week, new possibilities.
