Politicians Should Be Judicious With the Robocalls

We've been getting a lot of robocalls at home for the US Senate race. Although I'm registered as a Democrat, Nomi is registered as independent (in Massachusetts the official designation is Unenrolled, since we have an Independent Party), and consequently we get a lot of calls from Republican candidates as well as Democrats.

It's pretty much a given that I'll be voting for Martha Coakley, although I like much of what Joe Kennedy, the Libertarian candidate, has to say. Kennedy hasn't been robocalling, probably because he doesn't have the money, and I honestly can't remember the last robocall we got from Coakley.

But Scott Brown has been calling quite a bit, and my wife has finally had enough of the robocalls from Scott Brown.

Memo to all politicians: some of your constituents have six-month twin daughters at home that need their naps.
