Spamed from the USA

It's not all that often that I'll actually read a spam advert, but this title made me open it just because it seemed so odd.

"Bush advocates buying meds online. crania"

Given that it is the political season I might expect to see political spam, but I didn't expect to see one of the spammers actually using President Bush as a spokesperson.

The text of the spam is below...

Bush Advocates "Sense If Safe" Policy On Importing Meds.
If bush is advocating this and you've been contemplating, why not give it a try.

SAVE UP TO 80% ON ALL MEDICATIONS, STOP PAYING RIDICULOUS AMOUNTS TO ALREADY OVERPAID DOCTORS.

NO I'M NOT PUTTING IN THE LINK IN TO THIS POST

"President Bush says the importation of prescription medication from Canada and elsewhere into the US makes sense only if the medications can be assured to not harm US citizens. The government is obliged to assure the safety of its citizens, he says."
These products are all Rx, all FDA approved, and produced by licensed pharmacists and Doctors.



I wonder if this means spammers are Republican?

On the one hand this does sound a little like the comments Mary Harney made a few months back about advocating going on line to get a cheaper price, just after IRMA sued CDWow.ie. On the other, it sounds, well, fake.

Maybe the talking Bush Doll said it. It looks like an official site, but considering what the dolls actually say, I suspect it's a joke site. I mean would you have your Rummy Doll saying "Oh, it was your rhetoric that made us do it..."

take care,
Will
