Overheard

Actually, it was me on the phone, having a conversation with a voter. Read this aloud with a loud voice, full of disdain and derision.

Are you trying to talk to me about gays and lesbians for cryin' out loud? I'm a Republican!

Oh well, at least I wasn't talking to a chair. Although my head does hurt a little bit from banging it against several walls.

It's all the other conversations I had that day that made that headache go away. Bang on Minnesotans!

I manned the phones for Recall Walker here in WI and luckily didn't get any harangues. I was nervous, though.

Congrats. We need more people to get involved in our gov't issues. "We the People" are still responsible for making it work!

Karen - it really made me laugh though. Funny how most of the people running the volunteering place are not laughers though. Soooooo serious are the young uns!

Sarah - I know!

Ms A - not brave; just really super annoying.

SCG - but we all vote! Maybe they'll stay home? I doubt it!

deb - I am not nervous at all. I love getting someone to think just a wee bit differently. I know it might not always make a difference, but just knowing that they might look at the issue from another angle excites me.
