Remember when I wrote about my frustration with those recorded political phone calls? No? Well, it seems the politicians aren't reading my blog, either.

In just this week, I've had three calls from computers desperate for my vote. It must be the computers that want the vote, because it's never humans who call. I've seen Terminator Two, and I know what happens when you give computers all the power. I'm not falling for it - if a computer calls, I am carefully taking down the name and letting the person know I'm on to them and their machine masters, and they aren't getting my vote.

How long before the men in white coats come calling, do you think??

The men with the white coats have an appointment at my house first, then they'll be on to yours.

I actually lied to an Obama caller and said he had the wrong number. I NEVER answer my phone when the caller ID reads PRIVATE or an 800 number or OUT OF AREA, but I got OUT OF AREA when I was expecting a call and thought it was my sister. Rats. Lied right to the guy's ear. Would do it again to a McCain caller or Green Party or whatever.

Ah, I see the Whitecoats are here . . .
