Campaign phone calls

Got a call from (202) 695-8645 - a robocaller with a breathless recorded message about how we need to get Rick Santorum elected, or the Debbil's gonna get us, or something.

At the end, I was advised to press 1 to donate, or press 9 to discontinue calls.

Being the ornery cuss I am, I pressed 1, with the intent of telling the human, if any answered, to take me off their list, or at least tie up a line on the robocaller for as long as possible.

Silence for about a minute, and the thing hung up.

That's a real effective way of getting money.

By the way - the spell checker on Firefox thinks "Santorum" should be spelled "Sanatorium".
