Thank you, Stu.

My Senator, Sherrod Brown, was experiencing a high volume of calls and I was referred to the state offices at (888) 896-6446, (option 2), Columbus.

ITTDGY: Public Health Care Option! Don't let the DINOs get you down! (I already knew Sherrod Brown was a strong proponent of the public option.) Oh by the way, I supported Senator Brown in the 2006 election, and I even donated to him, and you have me on your snail mail list, too.

Staffer: Thank you for calling, Senator Brown is a strong proponent of the public option.

ITTDGY: I know, but I can't call DiFi (for instance), I don't live in her state, and I've never supported her for anything.

Staffer: (laughing) We'll pass your message onto the Senator. Thanks again for calling, and what's your zip code?

ITTDGY: zipcode.

RIP Sky Saxon indeed.

When I saw the top YouTube, I was all ready to sing, "Here we come on the run with a burger and a bun...".

Your zipcode is zipcode? You must get everyone's mail and I want that plain brown magazine-sized envelope back.

I want you folks to know I walked home from work just to call my Senator, who I already knew was in favor of a public option.

(I almost never bother calling congress critters, but it seems to me if this bill isn't going to end up like the climate change bill, i.e. all but useless, then it's time for us to do everything we can.)

Call your Senators! And if you don't have one, call Di-Fi and yell at her.

I'm not calling Casey. He's too much of a nutjob. I'll write him a letter in your honor and sign it with, Zipcode.

M. Bouffant said...

Well, the real-estate whore is my Senator, maybe I'll give her a call or send a snippy e-mail, if I don't have anything else on my calendar.

Thanks, AG and M.Bouffant.

It's not that hard to make the contacts, and right now is when it counts. Before they've hacked and amended it to death.

These people know that the polls are against them, and they're hoping they can pull a bait and switch without too many noticing.

Beat on them like a drum.
