So if you read my last entry, you know the story of my two phone calls.
This morning I'm just working away and the phone rings.
It was the actual CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR! I swear I thought someone was playing a joke on me but it was HIM!
He allowed as to how we have some mutual friends (which we do) and he knows I'm a guy who "prefers to fly below the radar" (so did he read my blog about not displaying bumper stickers and yard signs?!) but he would really appreciate my support, anything I could do for him. He didn't ask me for a nickel, just for my support and my vote. (I'm still undecided).
He was just as nice as he could be and once I picked my jaw up off the ground and was able to make sounds from my vocal chords, I wished him the best and thanked him for his call.
Wife asked me if I thought of telling him about his minion who called me on Friday, to which I replied no. Just as I don't hold Barack Obama responsible for Joe Biden or Robert Gibbs, I don't hold this candidate responsible for the jerk who called me last week on his behalf.
I'm afraid this guy and his camp may be way over-estimating my sphere of influence. Really weird.
