have another call. I'm sorry," excusing herself from further discussion.
I've never had a political fund solicitor hang up on me before. I rather
hope they're getting an earful this evening.
Inspiring! They may not be paid to listen to such comments, but I'm glad you made the effort anyway.
Similarly, I got a letter from Wayne LaPierre, asking me, as an NRA Life Member, to buy a "Legacy" discounted life membership. I like your approach--instead of just trashing it, I'll write him a nice letter asking him to steer the NRA away from being, as Vin Suprynowicz calls it, "America's largest gun-control organization," and help real pro-liberty organizations like GOA and JPFO.
And of course I'll make a note of your comments for when the Republican fundraisers call me...which is often.
