But they don't know who I am, and I have to give them a contribution to get it!

That is the tackiest fundraising strategy imaginable. I used to get those calls from that DeLay guy's office, and now I'm getting them from Tom Reynolds' office, whoever Tom Reynolds is.

I'm not even a Republican.

Welcome to the world of Fundraising.

I think giving an award is stupid, I stick to petitions, and surveys.

Congratulations. You should have invented the internet - then the award is a Vice Presidency.

Agreed. I'd respect them more if they would just call and say, "Would you be interested in contributing?" or do a petition or something. The award thing is just insulting.

The funny thing is that we had a deadbeat sublessor in our office for a few months about a year ago. We had expanded and had a bunch of extra space at the time. The guy was a joke; didn't pay his rent, totally disorganized, and flat-out incompetent. However, he's good at one thing: issuing press releases and getting his name in the paper. The local business paper just had a big picture of him and said that he had been recognized as a "Republican Leader of the Year" or something. It made me bust out laughing.

Y'know, that may explain why the person asked me to take off my pants at the end of the call.

Rain Man would make a great president. I'd vote for him.

At least they aren't trying to round up your neighbors in Pueblo and telling them to vote, even though they don't have papers... :shrug:

You'd have to leave your mother's basement first, Star Wars dork. What if he ran against Mark Hammel?

Rain Man

I've actually been thinking about running. I keep looking around, and I don't see anyone on the national scene who I think could beat me.

Heh! Congratulations on your award Rainman!

Not to be outdone, I have been "Republican of the year" several times. Twice, my boss and I both got the honor. What a coincidence!

I'll bet your award is a lamp, that looks like a lady's leg with a black lace legging and a short skirt for the lamp shade.

He would just be another politician who does nothing but follow the polls.

Wouldn't it be fun, though, to have the vote on chiefsplanet about whether or not we go to war with Iran?

Great. Then we'd have to listen to his college buddy patteeu and his band of roving neo-cons bitch about how President Rain Man is always posting polls to the public, asking if we should nuke North Korea and other assorted countries.

Or which wild animal the majority of Americans would least like to be eaten by.


"I have always been opposed to being eaten by wild badgers, and I am proud to announce the Anti-Devoured by Hungry Wild Badgers Act as a cornerstone of my administration. The American people demand action NOW! I'm calling on Congress to come together in a bi-partisan effort to move this legislation forward."

Classic, one of my good fiends actually got that lamp.
