This morning, I received an email from the Barack Obama and Joe Biden campaign. The subject line: “33,252 people named Kate.” For a minute, I thought, “Could Obama have discovered Kate-book.com?!?!?”
Alas, no. But this is still pretty cool. This email automatically sucked in the receiver’s first name and told them how many people with said name are registered to vote in the upcoming election. As for Kates: there are currently 33,252 of us registered. Which sounds pretty good to me, as I’m sure that doesn’t include Katherines, Catherines, Cates, and Kaitlins.
All I have to say is—way to get name-specific, Obama.
