I was gobsmacked!

By the Guardian's "clever" plan, that is! They want to have primo UK wankers write to the "little folks" in the USA and tell them to vote for Lurch. But Tim Blair is on the case:
The Guardian's Operation Clark County -- a letter-writing idea stolen from this site -- is off to a roaring start:
By the end of the workday, the paper had received more than 3,000 requests for voters, whose names were culled from public voter-registration rolls, said features editor Ian Katz.
Many of those requests were from opponents of the vote-influencing scheme, wishing to help Clark County residents avoid mail from pale, asexual, unevolved British socialists.
Well, Halloween is coming. What could be more scary?

Much more by following the link including a typical missive from Cranky Neocon and Tim's counterplan, "Operation Guardian."
