    on the phone with my Representative (Lamar Smith, ugh), he's actually taken a question. And folks have not been kind, either.

    I wonder if there are transcripts of those...

      And usually there is at least one person who covers "my" side of the issue. Too many of those who do get to talk are clearly confused about the topic or issue, and he manages to side-step any need to explain the facts to them, but uses the opportunity to dance around to his talking point. I can also tell I'm being "herded" with a particular demographic. There is no way the call system is randomly grabbing only white older retired/near retirement follks.

    •  Lamar Smith ... wow. I'm sorry, plumbobb (2+ / 0-)

      he's been around longer than Neugebauer.

      Maybe Ceiling Cat, FSM and all the gods will decide enough's enough, and we'll get some Democrats elected in '12. (Sure doesn't look like our party's efforts are going to get us there without a miracle or two ... seriously, the Abu Ghraib commander's the best Senate candidate we could find????)
