Let the polling begin

A robo-poll called the house last night, and my husband cleverly pretended to be a 27-year-old Republican likely voter. Way to stick it to The Man! The meat of the polls was: “If the election was  tomorrow, would you vote for…Republican Levitra Online Mitt Romney, Democrat Barack Obama, or Tea-Party Candidate Sarah Palin?” The poll asked this question twice more, with the “Tea-Party” candidate changing to Scott Brown and Mike Huckabee. (He chose  the Tea-Party Candidate all three times.)

Hmmm. What’s up with that?

    Will Sarah be using the teleprompter at her next appearance?

    I’d love to know who’s doing that poll. Does this mean the Tea Party, um, Party is going to become a reality?

    And how did DH manage to reply without bursting into giggles?

    That’s what I wondered. Is it a Tea Party poll or what?

    All he had to do was punch numbers on the phone, fortunately. I think he was giggling like a schoolgirl the entire time. (I was at rehearsal and missed the fun.)

    I like this ghost picture much better, Jennifer.

    I love the real life polls. By some freak of nature, we are on the Republican call list and get lots of poll calls. I let them say their slanted schpeal (I know I made up that spelling – it sounds better), ask their slanted questions, then tell them how I plan to vote. Goodbye!

    A 2012 poll this early seems kind of dumb, but maybe Sarah is paying for it.

    Probably the Pubs are actually doing research to determine which would be the best VP candidate with Romney. Hard to understand why they are doing it so early. Worked out so well the way they did it last time.

    (COPIED FROM http://www.theworldaroundyou.com/2010/02/04/mysterious-telephone-polling-of-statewide-vote-on-bingo/):

    “I received the following message just now, which was likely just the end of the call:
    TRANSCRIPT: …They are not willing to let you vote yes or no on bingo. If you believe that you should have the right to vote on bingo, please press 1. If not, Press. 2.
    No identification of who is conducting the poll in the tail end, but it may have been before my voicemail started recording…the phone number was from the 256 area code, but I was unable to trace it to a source. Anyone else getting this message and does anyone know how the recorded message starts?”

    MY COMMENTS POSTED SEVERAL DAYS LATER:
    “This is around 2pm on Feb 10. I just received that call. You missed very little at the beginning. The voice just said something like. “Hello, we’re taking a short survey…” and then just what you heard. No explanation of who “we” is. The only button I pressed was to disconnect the call. I had to wait for my wife to get home to see if she could check the phone to see where that robo-call push poll came from because I’m a dummy and can’t do it. She said it came from 334-239-4783, if that means anything to anyone.
