The 51st State

This almost clever spam turned up in my inbox today.
Unity 08 - Your Voice in Politics

Unity08 has launched a unique online study that allows you to rank the presidential candidates and the issues facing the country.

To start the study, click here.

We've invited you to take and publish this study because we've seen that your site actively discusses politics and the state of the nation. It is crucial for us to include as many American citizens as we can so that we can truly start discussing the "crucial" issues facing the country and how to resolve them... before it is too late.
So near and yet so far.

It's not spam. From what I've read, it's the best chance the country has to get better.

From what I read, it does look like it might be a worthy project but the email is a little bit cheeky.

That'd be flattering but for the fact that I'm British, something anyone passingly familiar with my site would know.

I'm afraid that qualifies it as spam in my book.
