    I’m sitting next to the phone

    that never rings, and the e-mail account that never pings, from politicians seeking my highly influential support.

    Via AP, Romney, Perry try to recruit Christie, Palin fans:

    Rivals Rick Perry and Mitt Romney are furiously scurrying to recruit heartbroken holdouts who had hoped GOP celebrities Chris Christie or Sarah Palin would join the Republican presidential contest.

    With a slew of donors and activists now up for grabs, the leading two Republican candidates redoubled their efforts — and made personal appeals — this week to win over unaligned high-dollar and high-power GOP players in what’s become largely a two-man nomination fight.

    What is it going to take? Herm? Newt? Someone?

    Ring–Ring !!!

    Me: Hello?

    Caller: Hi, I’m calling for the (GOP candidate) 2012 campaign and we’re asking for your support this coming election. Would you be willing to donate your time and money?

    Me: Ahhhh, no.

    Caller: Can I ask for your vote for (candiate’s name) come primary time?

    Me: Ahhhh, no.

    (((caller now goes through the talking points / sales pitch of the candidates’s experience and platform)))

    Me: Ahhhh huhh….

    Me: Say, when Palin was attacked with frivolous ethics complaints in 2009, where were you in defending her or at least speaking out against the Democrat’s scam???

    Caller: silence…(goes back to the talking points).

    Me: When Palin was accused of “blood libel” in the Giffords shooting, where were you to defend her? Your silence gives the perception of approval.

    Caller: silence

    Me: Say, if your candidate is attacked or smeered, why should I defend him / her? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Caller: I’m sorry, did I reach you at a bad time?

    Me: Yeah, anytime with your candidate is a bad time. Say, can you pass a message to the GOP leadership? Tell them not to send a donation letter to me. Tell then not to call me anymore for money and while you’re at it, don’t ever call me again. Also, don’t let your goons get anywhere close to my local Tea Party group….we don’t want you either. We’re too busy working on local elections.

    Don’t feel too bad, I’ve been blogging for about 10 years now, and if anything I’ve lost readers. Guess I need to be more provocative. 🙂

    I’m going to concentrate on the congressional and state races. I may as well, by the time Texas holds it’s primary the nomination is already settled. Just wondering, who thought up this mess of having the more populous states voting last in the primaries, meanwhile having states like Michigan able to have Democrats vote in the Republican primary because Obama won’t have any meaningful opposition?

    They ignore you at their peril.
