In Illinois, next Tuesday is primary election day. As someone who usually votes in the Democratic primary, I have been getting automated political phone calls from Democratic candidates.
I just got an odd call from Planned Parenthood on behalf of Governor Rod Blagojevich (bla-GOY-a-vich).
What was odd was not the boilerplate about a "woman's right to choose" or the Bush administration, but the fact that the recorded spokeswoman for Blagojevich referred to him at least four times incorrectly as "bla-GOYD-a-vich." The message ended with a reference to things "here in Illinois." I tried *69 to find the origin of the call, but the supposed originating number was "000-000-0000."
Of one thing I'm reasonably certain: the spokeswoman was not from "here in Illinois."
