  •  You want dismissive? Call Ben Nelson. (7+ / 0-)

    You know they don't give a crap by their tone of voice and by the lack of any effort to obtain contact information.  They don't even ask your name.  They don't care.  Do I think Nelson will even see a tally of the phone calls?  Nope, I don't.  Why?  Because I don't believe Ben Nelson gives a crap about what his Democratic constituents think.  He knows we have no choice but to keep electing him.

    Oh god, how I wish it were possible to primary him out.

    •  wow (3+ / 0-)

      I usually get that attitude when I call him but today when I called the staffer was very pleasant - asked my name and where I was calling from.  I asked if the Senator had made a decision and he said he wasn't aware of one but that he would pass on my comments.  It was one of the best phone calls to their office I've ever had.  Sorry you were treated poorly - I totally understand your frustration with our lack of representation here.

      •  You obviously got someone else, not the same guy (0+ / 0-)

        I got.  He's always snotty.  Never asks for contact info.  Never gives a crap.  I'm guessing he was at lunch and someone else was covering phones, or the phones were so jammed they put other staffers on phone duty.
