Thank you (we mean thank-you) to Peyton M. for this one:

John McCain needs YOU!

The John McCain 2008 Presidential Campaign is looking for interns for positions available immediately in our Arlington, Virginia headquarters.

In addition to giving you real-world work experience, this program provides an opportunity to participate in the most exciting presidential election in history! Campaign Internships are unpaid and participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation and housing.

Interns will work with staff on various projects essential to the campaign and play a significant role in Senator McCain’s campaign.

Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter (with availability) to:

Thank-you! [sic]
John Cummins, Deputy Director of Volunteers

There is no hyphen in thank you. Thank you. That is all.

On second thought, we did notice the hyphen in real-world work experience. This is fine. But is there any such thing as fake-world work experience? When there isn't an opposite to the modifier, you generally don't need the modifier. Politicians. Must they always bloat things?
