Huh. That’s odd.

I just got a robo-call from the McCain campaign inviting me to attend an event tomorrow. I guess they called me because I’m one of the seven registered Republicans in Rhode Island. He’s going to be in Providence, sounds like.

Isn’t that odd, calling the night before? It’s a 1:30 event. Like, who can arrange time off on that kind of notice?

I’m awfully tempted to try to nip out for an hour. It’s not far from the office and I can’t imagine there’ll be many people there. So I could look him right in the
eye and say, “Ummm…hi, Senator.”

The call stressed his credentials for fighting the war.

No, there’s no time to make rotten eggs…

Do the weasel dance. With any luck it’ll drive the crazy bastard so nuts he’ll ‘splode live on TV and lose the election.

Then instead you can have the crazy black guy with the picture of Che on his wall. No, wait…

We’ll see. I’ve been slacking off like a slacking machine this week, so…

Okay, it’s more than two years old, so I guess everybody’s seen it BUT ME: Tripod singing Gonna Make You Happy.

I laughed until milk came out of my nose. I have to do my YouTubing at night; it’s blocked from work.

DUDE! Um, DUDETTE! Go, and make a scene! Get on the news!

Politely, in a Republican New England kinda way, I mean. But you may get a chance to look him in the eye and tell him to secure the border, build the fence, and drill ANWR.

Or just start booing when he starts blubbering about the environment.

And keep Gitmo open! And fire that creep Juan Hernandez! And Richard Armitage! And end McCain-Feingold!

(By this point security will have arrived with their magic ouchy wands and you may feel a certain tingling, so be sure to scream out the name of your website for the youtube-a-lanche!)

OK, you need your zombie Reagan shirt… That would really get his attention – something like – “I would rather vote for the undead than vote for you” – although I am not so sure how far McCain is from the undead at this point. Anyway, just in case you get another robo-call with another McCain event, why don’t you send me a few sizes (email) and I will drop the shirts in the mail. Dawn already sent me the file although I could use one a bit higher DPI. Later (says the faithful Sweasel skulker)

I’m not really a scene-maker. Especially since I badly need to keep this job for my last few months in the States, and my employer just isn’t comfy with weasels who duck out “for a few minutes” at lunchtime and end up on the news being frog-marched our of a local conference center by Secret Service.

Hm. You guys perfeshunals, Brandon? What’s the desired DPI? The master version is only about 100 pixels wider than the largest one I ran with here, but I suppose I could enlarge it and crisp it up a bit…

Okay, I was checking out John McCain‘s site. I still haven’t worked out whether I can disappear for an hour at lunch time. Anyhow, front page. His slogan. “Ready to Lead on Day One.”

Isn’t that Hillary’s slogan?

I have a great idea.
Wear pink! All pink.

Good god! Do you think I want to be hustled out a side door with my blouse hiked over my head? Do you think I own an all-pink outfit?

As it happens, I’m wearing all black — as I do most days. Because I went to art school, and if I learned nothing else, I learned to wear black and chain-smoke.

Damn, I miss cigarettes.

Hey Sweasel, Whatever dots or inches you have is fine… As you can imagine – the fabric medium is not one of fine quality. It is about the same quality as a velvet elvis… BTW – we are proffetionels, as long as you pretend that word doesn’t mean what it means.

Yeah, black is the best. Um course I have no artistic talent. I just hang out with artists. I’m a cool sponge.
