Both political parties are really smokin' those telephones around the dinner hour each night, trying to get the little people to cough up some of their hard-earned funds to help their various candidates' campaigns.
I got a call last evening, and by the time the conversation ended, I think I'd convinced the volunteer that I wasn't stupid enough to send monies to the Dems right now when so far all they'd done was let Bush and Cheney wipe their nasty boots on their collective asses! I had a lot of fun giving him my current opinion of the whole bunch that were supposed to stop Bush in his tracks. There were some long silences, some "well, buts," and some "you're right," and "I know how you feel" coming from the poor volunteer who happened to ring my number. We ended finally by my telling him to call me in a few months. If things had changed, I'd be happy to donate, but not until I saw some real difference
between the present Dems and the hateful Repubs.
