Someone needs to die

I just got a call from a Republican National Committee pollster. It had no Caller ID, and they knew my name, meaning someone I've done business with and felt a legitimate need to give my phone number to has sold it to the GOP. My voter registration does not have my phone number on it (and it identifies me as an independent anyways,) nor does the NRA have my number, so it wasn't them.

I was gonna hang up, but the droid's script said that after the recorded message from Tom DeLay played, he'd come back to ask a poll question. Okay, that's an opportunity to use the Republican's own means to tell them they're a bunch of knobgobblers. That's probably one of the best ways to do it.

The recording plays, and it's DeLay railing against "Hollywood liberals" led by Hillary and financed by Soros, using organized Labor to "reload the Democratic machine", wah wah wah. The single poll question asked was, "Do you plan to support President Bush and a Republican majority in Congress?" Easy answer: "No."

"I'm sorry to hear that, sir." Yeah, I'll bet you are.

AOL and Time have a Presidential Candidate Matching site. They poll you and compare your answers on issues to the stated views of the major party candidates. The big table of their views is here. I come up 100% Dean, 98% each for Kerry and Sharpton, 95% Kucinich, 92% Clark, 90% Smiler Edwards, 78% Lieberman, 27% Beast Shrub.

I'm willing to accept loosened nuclear power plant regulations if and only if Shrub agrees irrevocably to move his entire extended family, his staff, and their entire families, permanently, to reside at the site of the first affected nuclear plant to suffer an accident.
