I actually don't mind those robocalls

Now let’s be clear here. I don’t love the calls and I’m not thrilled by them But as I told my wife the other who mentioned she’ll be glad when they’re over (a majority opinion for sure), I don’t share the same visceral disdain.

When I hear the likes of Mitt, Ann, Paul, Reince, Senator Johnson, Governor Walker, Rebecca, Clint Eastwood, or even some behind the scenes political operative, it tells me my side is constantly working to get out the vote.

I’m also quite curious as to their message. For example, Casper Green, the Pied Piper of senior citizens in Franklin called on behalf of a Democrat candidate. Green has never called me before. He’s sent me a nasty e-mail, but he’s never called. Green's phone message was filled with typical scare Grandma, liberal lies. Sorry, Casper. I’m voting for Paul Ryan twice, and I’m betting most Franklin voters will join me.

Those robocalls aren’t all that long. Turn down the volume, listen back whenever you want.

You’re probably guffawing all over your computer. I understand.

Hang on, folks. We’re almost done.
