Tomorrow is the Primary here in NY and I'm ashamed to admit that I know next to nothing about the majority of the candidates. I know that one of the contenders for Attorney General trying to get the Democrats' nod has a TV commercial with practically every Democrat who's been big in NY Politics for as long as I can remember. Another one has...John Leguizamo.
I also know that I've gotten about 20 robocalls today. I've ignored them to the best of my ability.
There's one other guy...I can't remember his name and I don't remember what he's running for, but about a week ago, his father knocked on my front door campaigning for him. And, once today, I actually picked up the phone because there seemed to be a live person talking to my machine. It turned out to be this candidate's next door neighbor...or some such.
If I get one more contact from a live person on behalf of this guy, I'm actually going to pay enough attention to remember his name. And then I might even vote for him.
(I don't really recommend this method for choosing candidates. For all I know, he's running in order to outlaw filming in NYC.)
*This post has been my blog-equivalent of a robocall. I just mashed a couple of buttons and here it is! I promise to try harder if you vote for me.
