Call from the Republicans | 10/28/08
In case you didn't know, when I lived in Florida, I was a registered Republican. When I moved to DC I was careful not to put any party affiliation because even though I've never actually voted for a Republican for a major seat, they call me a lot and I didn't want anyone to call me at all.
On Friday I got a call from some 850 number that my called ID displayed as "FL Repblican Party". Awesome, I thought to myself and answered. It takes some skill to have someone hang up on you without swearing at them but I got the job done. I first started in on Sarah Palin, arguably the dumbest person alive and the rebuttal was "She's not the whole ticket." Uh, she very well could be should John McCain pass on. Next up was "Obama This, Obama That"--uh, if you're trying to sell me on the Old/Stupid ticket why not talk about...them? No, I do not agree with many of Obama's tax policies (ok, any) but at least he has a plan beyond "get Main Street back in its feet [my friends]". I think the worker finally lost it when I told her that I outgrew being a Republican because as you get older you're supposed learn new things and apply them to your life. I then went on a little bit of an attack that can't really be reprinted here and she hung up.
Go Obama/Biden: Because you're not McCain/Palin.
