A call form the republican party. Funny story from last year. Not for GW fans.

While at my girlfriends house the phone rang and it came up republican something or other. My girlfriend who tries to not even mention the word politics around me laughs and says this must be meant for you and hands the phone to me. Of course I only too willingly answer it and say hello. The woman says this is so and so and we are calling to talk to Mary, I says "yes this is Mary"...lol, off to a good start already. Than she goes on to say she is taking a poll and wants my opinion on the presidents first year in office. She begins to ask me a series of questions asking my evaluation on things as being poor, fair and good. Of course to push the limits of things I have to keep throwing in things like "well at least he hasn't gotten us into any more wars over lies about weapons of mass destruction". After about 10 minutes the woman simply gives up says thank you for your time and hangs up. The funny thing was every answer I gave she kept pushing for low or fair and seemed unwilling to even mention good as acceptable. Of course I know all about Obama's faults and if it would have been democrats I would have thrown those out there as well but since it was republican group I couldn't help but get a few jabs in there. Have you ever had either party call you to try to take a poll?

This is hilarious! I've never had a call like that, but I would do the exact same thing as you. I think it's interesting that the woman kept trying to push for the less positive responses - I always knew those poll results weren't accurate... Anyway, thanks for sharing :)
