Here’s a summary of the call. If you wish to follow along, here’s the audio.
0:00-0:04: Hello, i’m an anonymous person from an area code you don’t recognize with the NRCC hoping you don’t hang up on me, I have an end of year report too, don’t hang up! (paraphrasing, slightly)
0:08: “Ike Skelton has been in Congress for over 33 years” (December 23rd, 2009 minus January 3rd, 1977… uh…)
0:10: “Lost touch with what Missouri workers are going through”
0:15-0:25: “Booo Stimulus!” (obviously didn’t have enough tax cuts for the voodoo economists)
0:25-0:35: “Boo Cap’n’trade!” (pretending that 60 votes exist for that is like pretending that this robocall is a productive use of money)
0:35-0:50: “Call Ike Skelton, and tell him your New Years Resolution is to watch his votes in 2010 to make sure he’s voting for Missouri Workers, not the liberal agenda of the Democrat Party leaders in Washington” (“Sorry Honey, I was going to resolve myself to losing 10 pounds, but this recording told me to keep track of Ike Skelton’s votes, pass the salt”)
Tis the season for campaigning 11 months out. Fa la la la lalalala la. Transcript under fold.
Hello, i’m calling on behalf of the NRCC with an end of year action alert about Congressman Ike Skelton.
Ike Skelton has been in Congress for over 33 years and has lost touch with what Missouri Workers are going through.
Unemployment in Missouri is 9.5% but Ike Skelton spent 2009 helping Liberal Speaker Nancy Pelosi push a massive $787 billion dollar pork-laden spending bill he called a stimulus but that’s not helped the Missouri economy.
To make matters worse, Skelton voted for a liberal cap’n’trade bill that will increase energy costs for Missouri families at the worst time.
Call Ike Skelton at (573) 635-3499, and tell him your New Years Resolution is to watch his votes in 2010 to make sure he’s voting for Missouri Workers, not the liberal agenda of the Democrat Party leaders in Washington.
