Sittin’ around money


A lot of passionate, enthusiastic Democrats are manning the phones and knocking on doors this weekend, working hard to get out the vote. But if you’re volunteering for Suzan DelBene, perhaps you’ve backed the wrong candidate, that is, if what really gets you motivated about politics is a $25 gift card.

Really, Dave? Huh. So much for that enthusiasm gap.

Anyway, if you don’t need the money, you can dial against Dave, and for Delbene, at any of these locations.

    This asinine election is almost over and will be history as of Wednesday. A whole bucket of money has been spent on it pumping up the bottom line of the broadcast industry but almost nothing has been mentioned about the war. The politicians of both the left and the right are ignoring it.

    Should we ignore the fact that American men and women are dying in other nations on the other side of the globe?

    Should we ignore the fact that we have killed many innocent mothers, their children and the fathers of those same children?

    Should we ignore the fact that we have destroyed a huge amount of property that will take years to rebuild?

    Should we ignore the fact that the survivors of this devastation will carry the memories of this carnage with them for decades?

    Shall we ignore the fact the the children of this nation will be paying for this war machine for decades?

    Yes we shall! There is a baseball World Series on. Then college football on Saturday and the NFL on Sunday and basketball has begun. Time to play ball!

    No kidding. Wouldn’t you think that such would have been a topic of this campaign?

    Dial for Dave

    Wow. Dave’s head injury must really have set him back if he can’t even dial for himself.

    Is anyone checking on him every day to make sure he is okay?

    We’ve gotten so many robo-calls that we’ve unplugged our house phone and are just using our cells. Not one of those calls has mentioned anything of any importance. It’s insane.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    The owner of a McDonald’s franchise is under investigation for violating Ohio elections laws by putting a flyer in his employees’ pay envelopes telling them to vote for Republican candidates and indicating they would not get raises if the “wrong people” got elected.

    ” … McDonald’s employees in northeastern Ohio received handbills in their most recent paychecks suggesting they vote for three Republican candidates.

    “‘If the right people are elected we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above our present levels,’ the insert said. ‘If others are elected we will not.'”

    re 10: Joke’s on McDonalds if the pamphlets were written in English.

    Even more hilarios is that most of their workers are not citizens.

    Looks like a reverse ACORN play is possible here. My wife and I are going to dress like vegetarians and ask the employees if the food is healthy.

    Que Hilarioso!!!!

    @3, Three quarters of a trillion dollars per year for Military, Inc. There will be war.

    Stills said: “Jesus Christ was the first nonviolent revolutionary.”

    I’m not sure if he’s correct historically, but I quite like the sentiment.

    Roger, its hell when they start copying Acorn isn’t it? Why the next thing they will be doing is campaigning inside the polling places like queen Michelle Obama

    Typical provincial comment. Ever been to a fast food place in the flyover states? Obviously not.

    Hmmmmm…..What’s a word we could use for joking that McDonald’s workers don’t read English or are citizens? It’s on the tip of my toungue somewhere. OH! RACIST.

    How does one dress like a vegetarian? (That’s right, another gross stereotype. You’re HI-Larry-us!)

    More likely Acorn copied them.

    More likely you’re full of crap to begin with.

    No one expects Goldy to understand the concept of incentivizing job performance and rewarding hard work. It’s an alien idea to libs, dems and all good socialists.

    slingshot spews:

    “Incentivize” is what Rethugs call blackmail, and dialing a telephone is what they call “work”.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    I continue to make phone calls for Rossi and others. Even if Rossi loses, at least I tired to help. One thing I’ve noticed is how pissed off folks are at the quantity and quality of Murray calls. A script is one thing…but a script being read by stupid people is counter-productive. One woman told me she asked a couple of simple questions about Lobbyist contributions and ObamaCare….the guy on the other end was speechless. She kept pressing him and he finally blurted that someone would call her back. No one did.
    Rossi is much more targeted with much more informed phone callers. Murray is focused on QUANTITY…while Rossi wants focus and QUALITY.
    It’s all about Murray’s Voting Record….and what Rossi would do differently.

    The Murray KLOWNS keep telling folks Rossi has no plan despite the specific list of things Rossi callers outline. It’s fun to talk to folks AFTER they have gotten some of these bubbleheaded Murray calls.

    Anyway, while you KLOWNS waste your time here in an echo chamber, Conservatives are working overtime and harder than ever.

    Have a nice day.

    @11 “re 10: Joke’s on McDonalds if the pamphlets were written in English.”

    No, the joke’s on idiots like you who make public fools of themselves by regurgitation rightwing racist talking points without doing any fact-checking.

    Hint: Those employees read English well enough to hire a lawyer to sue their boss.

    Targeted? I can speak from personal knowledge: Total bullshit.

    It has gotten so bad that I am not answering the phone — everything goes to the machine. I’ve deleted at least 50 wingnut calls for Rossi in the last 4 or five days.

    Hey. I got a call from the Rossi camp tonight. Decided to have some fun.

    “So Patty Murray got earmarks for Washington” with mock outrage.

    “That’s right. Murray is killing the economy by driving up spending.”

    “So how would Rossi replace the south park bridge?”

    “Sorry Sir?”

    “Well the state condemned the bridge. There’s a lot of industrial businesses on one side and a bunch of restaurants on the other. Lunchtime workers used to be able to go over the bride. Now it’s about a fifteen minute drive. Murray’s earmoark is replacing the bridge. Does Rossi care about the restaraunts as small businesses?”

    “I’m not familiar with that bridge.”

    “Murray secured almost $150 million to upgrade the port of vancouver. Thousands of people work at the port. a couple hundred will do the construction and as many as two thousand new permanant jobs will be needed when it’s done. Does Dino think creating jobs in Washington is bad?”

    “No sir, Dino Rossi is working to secure jobs for our state.”

    “But you’re telling me Rossi would decline keeping several hundred jobs and gaining several thousand ’cause he doesn’t like earmarks?”

    “Thanks for voting sir.” (click)
