Who is the marketing genius who has convinced local politicians that it’s a good idea to make robocalls with recorded messages to voters’ homes telling them to call the candidate’s phone number or visit his/her office to find out how wonderful the candidate is?  

In addition to calls from foreign call centres trying to lure me into a scam by pretending they’re calling from “Windows” about my computer, and telemarketing calls from banks trying to sell me “accidental death insurance,” I now have to endure these pointless, intrusive robocalls from politicians while I’m trying to eat dinner.  

Let me be clear, ladies and gentlemen of the political realm, I will never vote for anybody who uses this ill-advised strategy, regardless of what party they represent or what level of government they’re running for.
