This Elephant Never Remembers

Marla Campbell

You're the automated GOP push-pollster who calls me at the dinner hour. When you called with loaded questions aimed at supporting the Costa Mesa City Council in firing just about everyone at City Hall, I identified myself as a Republican and answered every question the opposite of how you wanted me to: I favor higher taxes, no layoffs and believe the Costa Mesa City Council is run by racist fucktards. The next night, at dinnertime, you called back. This time, I said I was a Democrat and answered in the complete opposite of how I'd replied before. That should stop the calls, I thought. WRONG! Now I am getting calls from survey companies from Texas, New Hampshire and Blocked Numberland. I give up.
