Attention Colorado Democratic Party

Monday, September 29, 2008
Listen up, you fuckwits. I'M NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU ANY OF MY MONEY. You're not going to wear me down by continuing to call me, especially when I've repeatedly asked you to stop.

You're really not. I'm not a fatigued parent who will give in to end the whining when my kid wants candy. You're just pissing me off more with each call.

The next time you call me, I'm breaking out some of the more colorful language I learned in the Navy, and I'm going to let you have it. Then I'm going to call your headquarters and let them have it. Then I'm going to go back to registering as an Independent. Because the "Independents" don't think they're entitled to anything from me.

You've been warned.

The Republicans in my state don't call me.

It's either the state or the party. Just sayin' :p

John, they're probably scared of you.

Just like they're going to be scared of me.

I don't get calls from the Democratic party.

Though I did go to the Democratic Headquarters yesterday to get a couple yard signs, and had a nice talk with the people there, one of whom I knew, the other who works for the state treasurer.

They even both went out to the car to meet and say hi to my grandmother.

The lady I knew said she'd let me know when Obama signs are in, and I took more yard signs than I'd come in for, for some of the contested races. (I came in for a sign for Rockefeller, Obama, and her mother.)

My guess is it's your state. :) Though the league of women voters did call my parents house looking for me.

One of the great benefits of being a curmudgeon is that you can snarl at everyone who calls you, thereby encouraging the rest of the household to excuse you from phone answering duties.

PS. Is colorful language for a girl sailor like "My Goodness, that uniform is a _lovely_ shade of pink!"
ducking, running and hiding in a deep hole

Easy Lance, there are more of us out here, lurking in the bushes for when you run by, trying to escape. Janiece just has to give us the word....

I was reading some advice columnist about how to deal with negative political email forwarded by an overzealous family member.

They finally threatened to donate $25 to the opposing political party every time they received on, which stopped the flood.

That threat probably wouldn't work for telemarketers, though - plus, you wouldn't want to donate to the GOP under any circumstances, even as a revenge bonus.
