Jon Stewart to Obama Campaign: Stop With the Cheesy Emails

Obama May Be Social-Media Wiz, but Fake, Folksy Tone Is Ridiculous, Grating

By Published on .

Perhaps you, like Jon Stewart and me, sign up for campaign emails as part of the job. Or perhaps you're simply a Barack Obama supporter. Are you too getting just a little weary of them? As Stewart points out, it's not the sheer number of emails, it's the ridiculously fake and familiar tone that always end the same way: with a plea for cash. "Hey!" is for horses Team Obama.
