Yesterday, driving back from Memphis where we had gone for a wedding, I came close to throwing the Blackberry out the window somewhere near Birmingham.
When I get an e-mail on the Blackberry, it buzzes twice. When I get a phone call, it also buzzes twice, before ringing. So whenever I get two vibrations, I tense up, waiting for the phone call. Which is no big deal most of the time, but pretty irritating. So imagine how I felt about the Rob Miller campaign after the follow messages buzzed me:
2:21 PM — “FACT CHECK: Joe Wilson Says He Has Created Jobs”
2:38 PM — “FACT CHECK: Butch Wallace, Paid Nearly $100,000 for part-time work”
2:39 PM — “FACT CHECK: Joe Wilson on the Wall Street Bailout”
2:40 PM — “FACT CHECK: Joe Wilson Says Rob Miller is a Nancy Pelosi Liberal”
2:44 PM — “FACT CHECK: Joe Wilson Says 16,500 IRS Agents Will Be Hired To Enforce The New Healthcare Law”
2:49 PM — “FACT CHECK: Congressman Wilson’s son received loans from a bailed-out bank”
3:04 PM — “FACT CHECK: Joe Wilson is a Fiscal Conservative”
3:11 PM — “FACT CHECK: Joe Wilson Touts Dangerous Defense Cuts”
3:12 PM — “FACT CHECK: Joe Wilson Says He Supports Tax Cuts”
3:14 PM — “FACT CHECK: Wilson Says he Wants to Protect Social Security”
3:16 PM — “FACT CHECK: Wilson Spent Over $920 Per Month in Taxpayer Money to Rent a Car for His Personal Use, More Than All But 8 Other Congressman”
3:20 PM — “FACT CHECK: Joe Wilson Says He Supports Veterans”
3:30 PM — “FACT CHECK: Wilson & The Savannah River Site”
I am guessing this had something to do with the debate between Miller and Wilson yesterday. But you know what? I don’t care. I’m still pretty ticked about it. Who on Earth thought it would be a good idea to do this to people on a Sunday afternoon?
