Two Weird Things in the Mail Today

posted by on October 30 at 15:25 PM

First thing in the mail: A mailer from Chris Gregoire that bails on the issues and instead puts the weight on being an Obama hanger-on. “If the policies supported by a new White House are blocked here at home in Washington state, that won’t do us any good.” That’s it? Blanket Obama support? Uh… refreshing.

But what got my attention was the address label:


That reads Samuel MacHkovech (thanks for hitting the auto-Irish button, I guess) and Andrew. Andrew? He’s my duplex neighbor, and we have different mailboxes. At first, I thought Dems might be cutting corners and co-mailing flyers to people registered at the same address… but my girlfriend’s registered here as well. She didn’t get this one.

If two guys live in the same building and they’re registered as Dems, I guess Chris Gregoire is bright enough to dismiss a household’s fag-hag and see what’s really going on. These guys are gay. And Irish.

Second thing in the mail: Got an envelope from an old buddy today, addressed to Sam “Motherfucker” Machkovech, and the only things inside were a check for some owed money and this utterly random photo of a tied-up monkey with a diaper:


I’m not sure which of the two mail items affected me more.

I get duplicate emails, one to my old email address at and the other to my address that is going bye bye.

Computers aren't as accurate as you think.

They're only as accurate as they are.

Ugh. Gay Irish is the worst kind of both. Rough break, Sam.

My former roommate and I once got a mailer from our district's Dem Office. It was addressed to both of us. I thought it was a move to save paper, but maybe they thought we were a liberal multiracial hetero couple who chose not to take eachother's names.

I love the Auto-Irish button, btw.

there's my monkey.

Andrew is registered at the exact same address as you. If you had a separate house number or apartment number, you wouldn't have gotten a mailer with both names on it.

I got this Rossi "rod to reel" campaign bullshit in my mail.

It would be more of an auto-Scot, really.

Uh, Sam, that is the issue. Does anyone who is for Obama really think Rossi wouldn't do everything in his power to undermine Obama's program in WA?

How much money didja get back?

They need to fire whoever did their mailing list. I got a similar mailing for Q*bert H. Humphrey and Pacman Mondale (not our real names). I think Mr Mondale may have lived in this apartment before I moved in in 2005. I think I got a similarly-addressed mailer from the WSDCC before, too.
