People don’t like telemarketers…or politicians

So why would politicians use telemarketing? The Republican Party of Minnesota has now called my home no less than 5 times. I’m sure the 20 percentage points McCain is trailing Obama by here in Minnesota is easily made up by continually pestering people by phone in their home. I like that the people who passed the Do Not Call List left a loophole open so they can bug me to vote for them.

These are the same people, i.e. those in government not Republicans vs. Democrats, who are trying to regulate away effective online advertising…unless, it would appear, they see the benefit in using it themselves. All politics is local, so hows about stopping calling me and perhaps reach out to me surgically via the cyberweb?
