Saucing Apples – so kindly stop interrupting

I am saucing 12 pounds of apples tonight. The recipe is simple:

1) wash apples

2) slice apples

3) dice apples

4) microwave apples until mushy. Stir often.

5) scoop apple mush into food mill

6) turn food mill

7) eat, store, or freeze

The next Political Committee, Robo calling Governor/Senator/Representative, or Action Group that calls me, interrupting the above steps, is guaranteed to not receive my vote tomorrow.

I am a decided and educated voter. I certainly don’t recall giving my permission to be on your campaign’s phone or email list. I definitely didn’t give permission for you to interrupt my apple saucing.

Finally, if your campaign premise is based on anger, spite and vengeance I can assure you that is tough to sustain for two years. If you don’t believe me, ask Brett Favre.
