Yesterday I got a phone call from a friend in Ohio. While we were talking she described an event that happened the other day. On Tuesday afternoon she went home from work sick. While at home she got one of those annoying campaign calls (which I haven't had to endure, not being in a swing state) and decided to have a little fun. I'm paraphrasing, but I think this is pretty close. C represents the caller and A is my friend.
C: Ma'am, I wanted to make sure you were aware of the upcoming election.
A: No way! There's an election coming up? When is it?
C: It's in two weeks ma'am.
C: Ma'am, are you a registered Democrat?
A: I'm not sure. Which one is the elephant and which one is the donkey?
C: The democrats are the donkey.
A: The elephant's cuter. I think that's what I want to be.
C: Ummm. OK.
I'll have to remember this routine. It could come in handy.
