Courting and Sparking on Election Eve

It started with a call from Bill. That’s right - former president Bill himself, calling little ol’ me. I was hoping he wanted to commission a sand sculpture; I had read that the Clinton campaign was spending money like a drunken sailor and I would love to get on that gravy train...

But no, all he wanted was for me to vote for his wife - and quite frankly he wouldn’t let me get a word in edgewise when I attempted to sell him on a logo castle. In short succession I got two calls from Hillary herself -- who also wasn’t answering any questions about her healthcare program or anything else. She did ask me if I was happy with the current administration, but never paused to hear my answer.

I like Bill and Hill. But I like talking to people who give me an opportunity to answer a question even better.

And then came a call from a real live union guy asking who I was going to vote for. I told him Obama! (I just love saying Obama! It has such a happy ring to it) and the real live guy quickly signed off with a “Don’t forget to vote on March 4!”

I love being able to produce the right answer.... right off the top of my head!

All you other Island Jackass Democrats come talk politics and load up on bumper stickers Thursday night at 6 over at Zeste. I’ll see you there.
