Monday Mailbag: Everything Old is New Again Edition

by | Sep 26, 2016

Hatemail is flowing at a high rate after The Capitolist broke the story of Sheriff Mike Wood’s generator scandal. More on that coming soon enough. In the meantime, we’re emptying out our inbox, clearing out the mailbox, and building a flamethrower-proof pillbox for the next wave of rage-filled missives. As usual, persons of consequence with a political ax to grind can send us their fake email messages to mock their enemies, engage in self-deprecating humor, or just set the stage for future breaking news. Yes, for those of you still scratching your heads, this regular installment is political satire mixed with a moderate dose of foreshadowing.

Here are this week’s Real* Emails From Real* Subscribers:
