College Dems Misfire E-Mail at University of Virginia

0

College groups are notoriously unprofessional, but generally that lack of tact is reserved for small groups of friends who can talk openly. What happens when a group of college kids accidentally send out an e-mail intended to be a draft agenda as the real thing to their listserv? Hilarity. The College Democrats at the University of Virginia sent out this gem (emphasis mine):

This is just hilarious. It appears their actual get out the vote efforts, phone banking and canvassing, are plagued with low turnout. How do they plan on fixing this? Perhaps with a sorority event with “hotties” and an Election Night Watch Party that’s “fine for those under 21″. I think we all know what that means. Finally, I’m not sure who Carmen is but she sounded crazy, and that’s no good. Ultimately, this is just a group of College Democrats, but it’s kind of hilarious to see their thinking process in e-mail form.
