How to annoy two hundred million voters in one easy step

Automation, yeah, that's the ticket!

The bane of the campaign season this year has been those automated calling machines.

Today, it's almost two p.m. and I've already deleted sixteen messages from my answering machine. It's gotten to the point where I've told friends and family not to bother calling, but to text or email me instead.

The record for me this year is forty-three messages in one day.

I don't know if it has occurred to the politicos, but these recordings send one message loud and clear.

My time is so unimportant to them that they can't be bothered to have a live person talk to me.

Talking to my friends and family, this election season may have helped destroy the residential phone line.
