Hizzoner Saxby Chambliss@dev.null

Last week, I got wind of the RealID bill, and I was concerned about it; specifically, how it probably won't fix a thing but will make it easier to steal your identity without touching you, and how it will costs states a ton of money when the states are already struggling. Who do I, a very anti-establishment kind of guy write to? Like an idiot, my senator, using UnrealID and EFF's Action Center.

Earlier last week, I got a reply from my Senator, one Saxby Chambliss (only in the south would you get a name like this.) The reply was a form letter, telling me that My Senator was Doing Good by Keeping The Terrorists Away and Thank You For Your Support, pretty much confirming that I was being ignored.

Well, I was nonplussed, to say the least. So, I reply to the Good Senator a little letter... OK, a long screed detailing why he's an idiot and I'm right... and then I send it. Mind you, I send it to the address he sent it from. And this is what I received in reply:

This also happened when I used his web form address. My tax dollars, hard at ignoring me.
