“Hello, may I speak with _______? My name is Ellen and I’m volunteering here at Democratic HQ in town. I’m calling to remind you to vote today. The polls are open until eight and your polling place is at ___________. We hope you’ll get out and vote and support President Obama and Chris Murphy for senate and Rosie O’Donnell for congress…. um…. wait…. NO….. I can’t BELIEVE I JUST SAID THAT. (here: hysterical laughter) Oh gawd, I’ve been on the phone too long, my brain has gone to mush. Rosa DeLauro, you want to vote for Rosa, she’s great. Rosie’s great too, but. Oh dear, never mind. Just get out and vote and have a great day, oh, um, evening!”
