Sandra Day O’Connor Robot Drunk Dials Nevada Voters All Night Long
It's 1 a.m., and you are in Nevada (why are you in Nevada?). Anyway: You are drinking grain alcohol in bed, because that is the best way to wind down after a long day of being unemployed/cursing Harry Reid. You begin to mumble again about how "Washington and Harry Reid are broken," but then the phone rings! You don't even bother picking up, because you know who it is: It's that goddamned Sandra Day O’Connor, always calling at odd hours and telling you how she feels about some lame ballot initiative. Ugh. Why doesn't she just go to bed? Because these constant phone calls are actually from a Sandra Day O'Connor Robot, and robots never sleep. But also someone screwed up the robocall schedule!
With a week to go before election day, Sandra Day O’Connor, the retired Supreme Court Justice, is aggressively campaigning on behalf of a ballot initiative in Nevada that would change the way judges are selected in the state.
Justice O’Connor, who retired from the Supreme Court in 2006 but still actively hears cases as a visiting judge on the federal appeals bench, is featured in an automated “robocall” that went out to voters on Tuesday, and in a separate series of Web videos.
The automated call caused a stir when the company hired to play the recording for voters accidentally scheduled the calls to go out at 1 a.m. rather than 1 p.m. The Web site of the advocates of the ballot initiative offered an apology Tuesday.
So many unemployed, SLEEP DEPRIVED Nevadans are going to vote against this initiative, just out of spite. [The Caucus]
