Are politicians exempt from observing the National Do Not Call Registry? I got a “call” yesterday from Mayor Nichols. The Mayor of Seattle. It was the world’s longest recording that had the gall to repeat itself, filling up my voicemail and generally pissing me off.

If they are allowed to do this — just think of what this next presidential race will be like. We will come home each night with the message waiting light furiously blinking. “Hello, this is Hillary Clinton…..or Barack Obama….or Mitt Romney….or Mayor Giulania”

Oh help. Politicians need to learn that what they are doing is “marketing” themselves, and in a modern marketing world, you cannot call us. Go do something good and let me read about it.
