no more, Dick

forgive the blog title.i couldn't resist, dawn. and hopefully when the governor's race is over in november and he loses, i will not have to make any more of those middle school-esque jokes.

as the race for governor heats up. and as the november election nears, tv commercials are rife with political ads for devos and granholm, stabenow and bouchard. it's sickening. any commercial break during a tv show never fails to have a smiling mug of a politician. it's ad nauseum.

however, dick devos has crossed the line, my friend.

he's resorted to calling us at home to inform us how things stand with granholm and what happened after the tv debate. i was quite surprised last week to have received a call from dick, or, should i say, one of dick's hired people.

last week the phone rang, a rarity here at our house. i picked it up, said hello, and listened. this woman started up, saying, "did you hear what jennifer granholm said in last night's debate..." i hung up.

earlier this week, again, the phone rings. i pick up. it's that same annoying woman. it coincided with the tv debate held at the grand studios of chnnel 8. i hung up. then i clicked the phone back on again. she was still babbling away. i clicked off. gave it a few seconds, clicked back on, and she was still going. so i gave her and dick devos a few choice words and hung up.

this afternoon, my momther-in-law called. we chatted,hung up, then the phone rings, minutes later. i thought she'd forgottent o tell me something.

well, guess who was on the line? it was that same annoying woman, singing the praises of dick devos. rather, i think she was putting down granhlm for something or otehr. this time, i didn't wait to hang up and try again. i gave a few choice words from my vast repertoire of words and hung up.

i am taken aback that devos has purchased a phone list from some dork of a company and is calling me. i don't need to hear any more about devos than i already have from tv and articles. i'm sick of dick. he has to stop calling me.

does he feel the hispanic vote is important to him and belives he's not going to get it and must pummel me even more with his name? please, dick, stop it. you're fooling yourself if you think i'd vote for you. it's a waste of our millions.

i don't quite get why a multi-millionaire would want more worry by taking on the role of governor of a state where unemployment is high. oh yeah, power. same reason why g. dub. ran for office. he had the money, he just needed another feather in his cap. oh, men and power. women and power. get a grip on that ego. power isn't all it's cracked up to be because the more ou have, the more you want.

so dick? please, forget we ever crossed paths, forget my name, forget my number.

there's a witty beatles song lyric that should go right here, right? i just can't think of the name and number song. i'm sure someone out there knows it.

Ah, the worst Beatles recording ever: "You Know My Name, Look Up The Number."

Or try: "Carve your number on my wall and maybe you will get a call from me. If I needed someone. ..."
