That’s what someone should have told
Unfortunately, they didn’t. And, perhaps more unfortunately (for all of us), the 1986 classic Short Circuit gets heavy rotation on late night cable TV. That's the only possible explanation why the voucher lobby is using robots to try to oust York County Republican Carl Gullick.
From the Rock Hill Herald, “Gullick target of robo-calls”:
"Something's got to be done, because this is ugly," said Joe St. John, a party activist supporting Gullick's campaign. "This is trash politics."
One set of calls came from
South Caroliniansfor Responsible Government (SCRG), a Columbia-based group targeting moderate Republicans across the state through direct mail, advertising and phone calls…
York County GOP Chairman Glenn McCall said he doesn't object to spotlighting a candidate's record, but distorting it is another matter.
"I'm really disappointed," said McCall. "We don't need these groups down here calling and doing all these push polls. The people, they're not going to go for that.”
The people aren't going to go for it? I beg to differ, Glenn. I'd like to speak for everyone and say that I love getting robo-calls in April (preferably at mealtime) and this is a good use of SCRG’s out-of-state money.
This, or burn the cash in a bonfire and cook marshmallows, then put the marshmallows in people's mailboxes with a note that says "Carl Gullick will harsh your mellow." I really can't decide.
Let me finish watching Police Academy and get back to you.
