Got a notice of a certified letter in the mail recently, and today my wife made a trip to the post office to pick it up. Turns out it was a junk letter from the Republican Senatorial Committee asking for money for campaigns. They said they sent it certified because they needed help fast.
The problem I have with it is they could have spent it bulk rate or even first class. But they spent $3.24 to send it certified mail. Then to add to the idiocy, the "business reply" envelope had a note on it asking if I replied and used my own first class stamp, they could save money on postage in order to maximize resources for the election.
What buffoons. The whole country is in an uproar over excessive spending, and this is how they try to sell themselves as wise stewards of other people's money? The Tea Party needs to keep kicking these guys in the a$$ until they remember how to think like conservatives.
