I'm on every Do Not Call, Do Not Solicit, Do Not Bother, Go Away! list you can imagine, so I don't get a lot of telephone solicitations even during election years.
I have always found robotic calls annoying and am somewhat pleased by the lack of those intrusions this year - of course it may be because Amy and I can rarely find our home phone in time to answer it, but that's another story.
In past years I've had recorded Governors and even Presidents call begging for my vote. However I've apparently missed a lot by getting myself off those lists and now feel a little like techno-troglodyte.
Especially after I heard this call initiated by a robotic election hustler in San Francisco.
Wow! Back in my day folks paid money to call numbers where they talked like that, now they call you for free.
The obvious correlation between politicians and dirty talk need not be explored further I suppose.
