Saturday Afternoon Phone Conversation

"Hi, Spot, I'm with the Obama campaign, and we're looking for strong Democratic leaders like you in your county. Other Democratic leaders like you have been donating $150 to the campaign. Can we count on you?"

"I don't think so."

"Why not, Spot?"

"I'm not comfortable with the way he has been getting cozy with anti-gay evangelicals. I don't think he represents the kind of progressive ideals I look for in a Democratic candidate."

(long pause)

"Oh... Um... Have a good afternoon then."

"Thanks, bye."

This is an advantage of being Independent-- I'm not on anyone's call list.

I love how you get the name "leader" if you fork over the green. How patronizing. Good for you for poking through the veneer...
