Thankful for Caller Id

My phone just rang. I picked it up and looked at the CallerID - it said, "Romney for Pres" on the little monitor. Needless to say, I did not answer. So I add to my list of things to be thankful for this year, CallerID. Hallelujah! Praise be, says atheist me!

If I don't like the candidate, I like to answer and engage the advocate as long as possible, by pretending to be undecided. The more time they waste on me, the less time they have to persuade others.

Sacred Slut - indeed - I'm quite the technophile...

SWF - That is a nice strategy, though generally ineffective when it is a robocall (which according to my answering machine, it was - I assume Mitt did not call me personally, though it was impressive that he addressed me by my first name in the robocall). I suppose in that respect, I tied up their line for as long as it took to deliver the message. (Which I did not listen to beyond the first few seconds before I deleted it).
