Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

First it was robo Calista Gingrich, and now I'm getting robo-called by Focus on the Family!?!?

They called to say they are sending me voter registration information? Honestly, how the hell did I get on their call list?? I just hope they send me something with a request for money, and a postage paid envelope because I'm pretty sure I could think of a thing or two to put in that envelope, before I mail it back. And, surprisingly enough, it won't be money.

I've been through a lot of election years, but never one where I've gotten this many pestering phone calls.

1. I receive a FOF robo with 'Bill Bennett' as their spokesman. I just set the phone down and let them

waste their time for nothing.

3. As ^ they said, waste their time.

 

The more time wasted with you, the less they have to influence others.

4. It was on my answering machine, when I got home

Otherwise I'd have stayed on the line, on the chance a real person would ask me for money. I think I could have come up with a thing or two to say to the poor sap on the other end of that line.

5. I got the robo Calista, listened through it, and waited for an operator "ready to take my donation".

 

Then I yelled "TELL CALISTA AND NEWT TO FUCK OFF!" and hung up. At least it kept a line tied up for a few minutes to spare others the pain.
